Packers activate Rodgers for Panthers game

The Green Bay Packers have activated quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is coming back from a broken collarbone suffered Oct. 15 against the Minnesota Vikings.

The Packers will add Aaron Rodgers to the roster and they'll also add him to the injury report. But don't worry, it's a formality for someone coming off IR. There was no setback with his collarbone this week.

Davon House, as expected, will not play on Sunday at Carolina. Fellow cornerback Demetri Goodson and linebacker Nick Perry still have a chance to play pending their work the rest of the week.

Rodgers' return makes Nelson a top choice (0:38)

Aaron Rodgers spent a few minutes at the beginning of practice talking things over with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb, two players who he'll need to come up big on Sunday.

Nick Perry returned to practice but appeared to be limited. Only two players not practicing were Davon House and Jake Ryan.

Nick Perry, who missed Sunday's game because of foot and shoulder injuries, was in the trial return category and will be on a rep count today, coach Mike McCarthy said. Still not certain he will be back for Sunday at Carolina, but with the way Clay Matthews has played lately, the Packers could have a strong pass rushing duo again. "We're different with Nick and Clay on the field," McCarthy said

Mike McCarthy on Aaron Rodgers' work with the No. 1 offense yesterday: "Aaron looked good. He's been practicing, so he looks like himself. I thought he had a good day." Packers will go in pads today.
