GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - The Packers are 0-2 since losing Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter last Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. WBAY's Packers panel discusses Brett Hundley's first start and whether he and the team can weather the storm without Rodgers.
AARON RODGERS TIMELINE FOR RETURN
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Sunday doctors believe Aaron Rodgers will be able to resume throwing in six weeks after having surgery to repair his broken right collarbone on Oct. 19.

While NFL Network's Ian Rapoport said the "Packers are not expecting Aaron Rodgers back this year."
Our guys weighed in:
Rob Demovsky, ESPN: "Adam Schefter and I both talked to people this week and Adam and I communicated on this. I think we have the information. Adam talked to somebody independent of someone I talked to and the hope is that he will come back as long as they are in contention. If they are out of contention, there's no reason to bring him back but there is hope that he can come back week 15-16. Somewhere in there."
Jason Wilde, ESPN Wisconsin: "I can tell you he wants to play again but they have to be in contention to do it like Rob (Demovsky) said. It doesn't make any sense to have him come back if you weren't able to stay afloat while he was gone. He wants to play. He wanted to have the surgery as quickly as possible so he could come back as quickly as possible."
