The impending return of All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers is a really good thing for the Green Bay Packers, but his presence at practice is a distraction.
Coach Mike McCarthy's job is to keep the focus on winning the next game against lowly Cleveland. If the Packers don't, the question of whether Rodgers is medically cleared to play won't mean anything. It's a real worry that Green Bay's slim playoff hopes could be wiped out by a loss to the winless Browns. Although quarterback Brett Hundley was ineffective in the win against Tampa Bay -- throwing for just 84 yards -- he did lead his team on a game-tying field goal drive in the fourth quarter and the 72-yard game-winning touchdown drive in the overtime period.
