Quarterback Aaron Rodgers returns to practice for Packers
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned to practice for the Green Bay Packers on Thursday after sitting out with a left calf injury.
Rodgers was limited to a little more than half of the snaps during the team practice periods on Thursday. Coach Mike McCarthy said that Rodgers' mobility ''looked good.''
''Well, we have a game plan. He went down and did everything we asked him to do today,'' McCarthy said. ''As far as what we do, how we do it, how much we do it, that's what the game's for.''
Rodgers missed two days of light practice last week, along with practice on Wednesday, to focus on treatment for the lingering calf injury. He has already said that he intends to play in Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.
''I didn't notice him out there until I saw one ball that kind of squeaked through and went in for a touchdown,'' veteran cornerback Tramon Williams said. ''I said, `Oh, that's why it squeaked through. We've got No. 12 in the back.' It's a little different.''
