Packers coach Mike McCarthy gave his own estimate on when Aaron Rodgers will be back in uniform, though it was an unofficial one.
As reported by multiple media members:
McCarthy on Rodgers return: A couple weeks away would think. They haven't given me a date.— Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) November 11, 2013

Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone in the Packers' 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears on November 4th.
If a couple weeks literally means two more games missed, the third game out would be the Thanksgiving Day showdown with the Detroit Lions.
A previous report brought a potential return by the Atlanta Falcons game on December 8th.
The Packers are forced to go with third-string QB Scott Tolzien as the starter when the Packers play the New York Giants on Sunday (1:00 p.m. on 620WTMJ).
That wasn't the only workout, though. According to the Journal Sentinel's Tom Silverstein:
#Packers had five in for workouts today: QB Matt Flynn, OT Jamal Johnson-Webb, G Tori Mobley, TE Emmanuel Ogbuehi and WR Eric Rogers— Tom Silverstein (@TomSilverstein) November 11, 2013
