McCarthy: Rodgers 'made big improvement' in last week

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Nov 15, 2013

All of Packers Planet has been wondering when quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be healthy enough to return to action after suffering a broken collarbone in the Chicago Bears game on Nov. 4.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says that Rodgers is getting better, but doesn't specifically know when he'll return to action.

"He feels better.  He's made a big improvement from last week to this week," said McCarthy on Friday.  "I don't have a plan (for his return)."

McCarthy said Rodgers has been "on top of every inch of his rehab," but only knows about one game and his availability.

"I know he's not playing this week."

There has been much speculation he could return by the Detroit game on Thanksgiving Day or the Atlanta game on December 8th.
