Rodgers, however, who hasn't played since injuring his collarbone against the Chicago Bears back in early November, still hasn't been medically cleared to play Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Also limited on Wednesday were defensive tackle Ryan Pickett (knee) and defensive end C.J. Wilson (ankle). Not practicing were tight end Brandon Bostick (foot), defen...
