Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t appear to have any problems slinging the football during warmups Sunday night.

Rodgers is still sidelined with a broken collarbone, but he took some time to throw the ball around before the Packers played the Pittsburgh Steelers.

This is terrifying for fans of other NFC North teams. He’s still a few weeks away from being healthy enough to play, and hopefully the Packers are out of the hunt by the time he returns. Nothing would be more painful than watching the Pack make the playoffs after Rodgers missed several games.

The same thing happened a couple years ago when he broke his collarbone the first time, and it was incredibly frustrating. Judging from that video, I’d say there’s a slight chance we might be headed for a repeat of that specific scenario. Pray it doesn’t happen.
