Packers' Ty Montgomery (ribs) placed on injured reserve

Injured Packers QB Aaron Rodgers returning to practice

The Green Bay Packers are still in the NFC playoff race, and as such Aaron Rodgers looks to be on his way back to the active roster soon enough.

The Packers activated Aaron Rodgers off injured reserve Saturday, as he returned to practice for the first time since suffering a collarbone injury on October 15.

"The plan", McCarthy said, per Ryan Wood of packersnews.com, "he's got a workout today that we'll obviously evaluate". But, we're looking tomorrow to potentially practice him in a trial return only. "That's the outlook. We'll determine that tomorrow after his work today".

During warmups prior to the Steelers game, No. 12 threw a pass that was about 54 yards. According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, the 24-year old tailback has been put on the injured reserve list by the Packers due to injuries to his wrist and ribs, effectively ending the Stanford product's year.

The Packers are now 5-6 heading into Week 13.

Rodgers wouldn't be eligible to play at the earliest until December 17 at Carolina.

The Packers host the Buccaneers Sunday at Lambeau Field.

The Packers used their second and final "designated to return" spot on Rodgers, and the coaching staff has been very optimistic of Rodgers recovery.
