Aaron Rodgers 'slinging it' as scout-team QB, Packers' Brett Hundley says

If his performance at practice is any indication, Aaron Rodgers is recovering just fine.

The Packers quarterback drew praise from his teammates amid his return from a broken collarbone as he threw at practice in front of reporters Wednesday for the first time since suffering the injury.

“He throws the ball unlike any I’ve ever seen,” fellow quarterback Brett Hundley said, via ESPN. “Still slinging it.”

Packers linebacker Clay Matthews had even joked the team shouldn’t have placed Rodgers on injured reserve.

“Like I said last week or something like that, I think guys have just seen him, throwing the ball in general,” Matthews said. “So I think we know when he comes back we know what he brings to the table. In the meantime, there’s no point in getting too excited over his hopeful return, because Brett’s our guy. We’ve got these four more games, and I assume one more game with Brett at the helm. We’ve got to get this win first, but hopefully that’s the plan moving forward.”

Rodgers was activated off injured reserve and returned to practice Saturday for the first time since breaking his collarbone Oct. 15 against the Vikings. He also worked as one of the three scout-team quarterbacks Wednesday.
