On Tuesday, Rodgers said he has been undergoing treatment and doesn't know if he will be "100 percent" for Green Bay's first playoff game on Jan. 11, but believes he will be "in a better spot."

"It's going all right," Rodgers said after Friday's practice. "The calf is slowly progressing. I wasn't out there today, but we're right where we need to be in getting ready to hopefully get on the field next week."

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the earliest he sees the quarterback returning to practice is Thursday, and that Rodgers is "doing well."

On Friday, Rodgers was selected to the AP NFL All-Pro team.
