GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has returned to Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions after leaving in the second quarter with a calf injury.

Rodgers returned to the sideline during the opening minutes of the third quarter and took over from backup Matt Flynn on the Packers' second series of the quarter with the game tied at 14.

Rodgers was taken to the locker room on a cart with 2:24 left in the second quarter after getting hurt while scrambling before throwing a 4-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb.

Rodgers hurt his left calf last week against Tampa Bay. He was listed as probable for Sunday's game after being limited in practice this week.

For Detroit, guard Larry Warford left midway through the second quarter with a knee injury.
