The Packers are targeting Week 15 at Carolina for the return of QB Aaron Rodgers, contingent on Green Bay being in playoff contention and Rodgers receiving medical clearance, a league source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The Packers activated Rodgers off injured reserve Saturday and he practiced for the first time since breaking his collarbone on Oct. 15.

Rodgers can't play for at least two more weeks because of the injured reserve rules, which is Dec. 17 at Carolina.

If he doesn't return vs. the Panthers, Rodgers would have to be activated the following week against the Vikings or he would not be able to play again this season.
