Aaron Rodgers (calf) held out of Packers practice again
Rodgers has been dealing with a strained left calf since Week 16, and re-injured it in the regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions. He missed two series before returning.
He has not practiced since the Week 17 game against Detroit, but said Tuesday that he isn't concerned about the calf or about how much practice he gets this week. Rodgers also said that his calf "feels better."
Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters that he plans on playing Rodgers on Sunday and that the quarterback was scheduled to stay in the weight room on Wednesday.
"Aaron's getting better. He's going through the rehab. There's a chance he might practice tomorrow. He's getting stronger," said McCarthy.
On Friday, Rodgers was selected to the AP NFL All-Pro team. The quarterback has thrown for 4,381 yards and 38 touchdowns this season while only throwing five interceptions.
Green Bay hosts the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in the second round of the playoffs. The Packers had a bye during the Wild Card round, while the Cowboys defeated the Detroit Lions.
