With Brett Favre's standoff with the Green Bay Packers still simmering, Aaron Rodgers took his place as the starting quarterback in the team's first training camp practice this morning.
Rodgers says he is doing his best to ignore the ongoing controversy with Favre, who has threatened to file for reinstatement with the league and report to camp this week. It's viewed by many as an attempt to put pressure on the team to trade him.
But, at least for now, Favre's situation remains unchanged, with the Packers presumably working on dealing the player who served as the face of the Green Bay franchise for the last 16 seasons before announcing his retirement in March.
Before reporting to camp, Favre first would have to file for reinstatement with the league and have his request approved by Commissioner Roger Goodell. Then he'd have to pass a team physical.
