Tuesday November 4th, 2014

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers participated in the team's workout Monday after injuring his hamstring during Green Bay's loss to the New Orleans Saints on Oct. 26, according to

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."
