Packers QB Aaron Rodgers practices Tuesday despite calf injury

Tuesday December 23rd, 2014

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers practiced on Tuesday despite a calf injury, according to Rob Demovsky of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

According to the Sentinel's Tom Silverstein, Rodgers didn't go "full speed" at practice, but is on track to start Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, which will determine the NFC North winner.

Rodgers injured his calf in Sunday’s win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and said it was sore afterwards.

The injury came on Green Bay’s second possession in Tampa, but Rodgers remained in the game, completing 31-of-40 passes for 318 yards and a touchdown in the Packers’ 20-3 win.

The Lions haven’t won a game at Lambeau Field since 1991 and Green Bay is undefeated there this season. Rodgers has thrown only five interceptions this season—none at home—and hasn’t thrown a pick at Lambeau since Dec. 2, 2012, against the Vikings.
