Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said there is no change in the status of injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but he did note improvement following Wednesday's practice.

"Aaron is doing better," McCarthy said. "He still has not been cleared by the medical staff.

"Threw the ball extremely well. Looked sharp. He's getting better."

McCarthy said he didn't count Rodgers' repititions but expects a similar approach to last week before a final decision later in the week. Last week before going to Dallas, the Packers ruled Rodgers out Friday.

Rodgers was officially listed as a limited participant Wednesday. He is scheduled to meet with the media Thursday after practice.

Matt Flynn worked with the first team and is preparing to start Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Flynn has guided Green Bay to a pair of one-point wins after the Packers went 0-3-1 in the first four games Rodgers missed.
