The Packers are looking for answers to stop a three-game slide while waiting for Aaron Rodgers to return from a broken left collarbone.

Rodgers says Wednesday he's going to need to practice two days before a game in order to play. That means if Rodgers practices Friday, there's a chance he could be ready for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

The outlook doesn't look good for now. Coach Mike McCarthy has said Scott Tolzien will remain the starter for the Vikings game. Rodgers didn't participate in practice Wednesday, save for giving some coaching tips.

Tolzien threw three interceptions last week, but has shown an ability to hit receivers deep.

Green Bay is looking to get the running game going again despite defenses stacking the box.
