Packers QB Aaron Rodgers not concerned about injured calf

Wednesday January 7th, 2015

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday that he isn't concerned about his injured calf or how much practice he'll get in this week ahead of Sunday's NFC divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Rodgers has been dealing with a strained left calf since Week 16, and reinjured it in the regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions. He missed two series before returning.

Especially after a weekend off while the Wild Card games were sorted out, Rodgers said Tuesday on his ESPN Milwaukee radio show that he isn't concerned about the injury.

"It feels better," Rodgers said, according to "We'll see what happens this week as far as practice reps. Everybody's so concerned about them. I'm not, and thankfully my teammates aren't, either."

The Packers were off Tuesday, so Rodgers will be reevaluated on Wednesday before the team holds its first practice of the week.

Rodgers added that he also wasn't concerned about the prospect of reinjuring the calf on Sunday.

"If it happens, it happens," he said, according to the Associated Press. "At that point it's out of my control.''
