If you’re a Green Bay Packer fan, I’m not sure if this news is good or bad – quarterback Aaron Rodgers will play tomorrow against the Dallas Cowboys in their divisional round playoff game but he won’t be 100 percent. While he didn’t practice on Wednesday, he returned to the practice field on Thursday. Although that practice was limited, Coach Mike McCarthy has said that Rodgers’ mobility “looked good.”
According to an ESPN report, Rodgers’ calf muscle tear is listed as “slight.” Aggravating a persistent calf injury in the final game of the Packers season against the Lions, he was toted off the field on a cart in the first half with backup QB Matt Flynn stepping in to replace him. But Rodgers came back after halftime to lead his team to a win for the NFC North division title, No. 2 seed in the NFC as well as a first-round bye.
Other reports say to anticipate that Rodgers’ mobility will be affected “significantly” by his injury. He’s had a good season to date, ranked seventh this year in NFL in passing, racking up 4,381 yards. And he’s got the best TD-to-INT ratio in the league by throwing 38 touchdowns with only five interceptions.
Saying they have a game plan for Sunday’s game, McCarthy said “As far as what we do, how we do it, how much we do it, that’s what the game’s for.”
