GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Quarterbacks Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers both have received medical clearance from the team and are taking part in voluntary workouts with the Green Bay Packers.

Rodgers is coming off a broken foot he suffered last season and Favre is returning from off-season ankle surgery to remove bone spurs.

Coach Mike McCarthy says both are throwing the ball well.

He says their presence at practice is a boost to players such as rookie receiver James Jones, who gets a chance to see what it's like to catch a pass from Favre just as he breaks out of his route.

Favre plans to attend nine of the 12 voluntary workouts.

Cornerbacks Charles Woodson and Al Harris were among a small group of players not present for the voluntary workout.

Defensive end Aaron Kampman continues to rehabilitate a knee injury and sit out practice.

First-round pick Justin Harrell also has sat out the team's full practice as the Packers remain cautious with the ruptured left biceps tendon that cut short his college career at Tennessee.
