The wait continues for Aaron Rodgers' return.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback was not practicing during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media. Coach Mike McCarthy said last week he didn't anticipate Rodgers returning until at least Thursday, but sounded optimistic about his prognosis when asked Monday.

Rodgers was scheduled to meet with team doctor Patrick McKenzie to have his injured left calf evaluated to determine a plan for his participation before Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Tight end Brandon Bostick and defensive lineman Josh Boyd were the only two other players not practicing. Both players appeared to be full participants during the bye week. Cornerback Demetri Goodson (illness) and receiver Jordy Nelson (personal reasons) returned to practice.

The Don Hutson Center was frigid with coaching staff keeping the doors open for individual and fundamental work before the team headed outside for team periods. According to the National Weather Service, it was zero degrees in Green Bay with a minus-24 wind chill.
