Packers' McCarthy: Rodgers (hamstring) 'looked good' in return
Rodgers, 30, was injured after a seven-yard run against the Saints but stayed in the game and finished with 418 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. Though he continued to play, his mobility was clearly limited by the injury.
The Packers had a bye last week and Monday's practice was Rodgers' first on-field work since the injury.
"Aaron did everything today," coach Mike McCarthy said Monday. "He looked good. He went through the workout today."
In eight games this season, Rodgers has completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 2,092 yards, 19 touchdowns and three touchdowns.
The loss to the Saints snapped the Packers' four-game winning streak.
Green Bay signed McCarthy to a multi-year contract extension on Monday. The Packers are 87-48 under McCarthy and won the Super Bowl following the 2010 season.
The Packers are 5-3 and in second place in the NFC North. They host the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.
