As expected, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned to practice on Wednesday. Here’s the updated injury report.

Aaron Rodgers returning to practice was the only major change to the Green Bay Packers‘ injury report on Thursday.

It appears he is following a similar routine to last week as he recovers from a thumb injury.

After not practicing on Wednesday, Rodgers was listed as a full participant on Thursday. Here’s a closer look at Green Bay’s updated injury report for Week 7.

Packers injury report: Aaron Rodgers practices in full

While Rodgers looks on track to play again this week, it’s looking increasingly unlikely that he will have either Christian Watson or Randall Cobb to throw the football to.

Like on Wednesday, both Watson and Cobb sat out of practice on Thursday.

Watson is still dealing with a hamstring injury, while Cobb isn’t expected to play this week due to an ankle injury.

Offensive lineman Jake Hanson could also be out. He missed practice for the second consecutive day as he deals with a biceps injury.

Tight end Marcedes Lewis didn’t practice, but this was his rest day and not injury related.

Offensive linemen David Bakhtiari and Elgton Jenkins were limited at practice again on Thursday. Both players look set to play again this week. The question for Jenkins is will he remain at right tackle or move back to guard? We’ll soon find out.

Good news for the Packers is that star pass rusher Rashan Gary was a full participant at practice for the second day in a row, which suggests he hasn’t suffered any setbacks as he recovers from a toe injury.

There were no significant updates on Thursday’s injury report, outside of Aaron Rodgers’ return to practice.

Green Bay will update its Week 7 injury report for the final time on Friday.
