GREEN BAY (AP) -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has returned to practice on a limited basis but appears highly unlikely to play against the Detroit Lions on Thursday.
Rodgers has been out since Nov. 4, when he hurt his left collarbone in the first series of a 27-20 loss to Chicago. The Packers, 5-2 at the time, have been winless since then.
McCarthy said Monday that the chances of Rodgers playing were "slim to none." On Tuesday, he said it was "closer to none."
The coach said Matt Flynn took the starter reps on Tuesday, and that he was still preparing both Flynn and Scott Tolzien for the key NFC North game against Detroit.
