Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has returned to practice for the Green Bay Packers, a sign of progress in his recovery from a concussion.

Rodgers participated in the entire portion of Thursday's practice that was open to the media. The team did not go through any full-contact team drills while reporters were present.

Rodgers sustained a concussion late in Sunday's overtime loss at Washington. According to NFL guidelines for head injuries, Rodgers must be symptom-free and cleared by a team doctor and independent neurological consultant before he can play again.

Green Bay hosts Miami this Sunday.
