Aaron Rodgers still can't quite shoulder the load, it appears.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback practised on a limited basis with his teammates Wednesday, and even took some first-team reps.

But five-and-a-half weeks after fracturing his left collarbone, Rodgers still isn't medically cleared to play, and is unlikely to be, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

And yet tight end Andrew Quarless said Rodgers "looked real good" Wednesday, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

The Packers are proceeding as if Matt Flynn will start Sunday afternoon in Dallas. The Packers are 1-1 behind Flynn, and sit at 6-6-1, only a half-game behind Detroit and Chicago (both 7-6) in the NFC North.
