Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) listed as probable for Sunday

Friday January 9th, 2015

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is listed as probable for Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys at home, the Packers announced Friday.

This past week it was reported that Rodgers was suffering from a slight tear in his calf, though his status for Sunday has never really been in doubt. 

Rodgers, 31, originally hurt his calf during Week 16 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and re-injured it in Week 17 against the Detroit Lions, sitting out two series before returning. 

Rodgers was named to the AP All-Pro team last week after finishing the regular season with 4,381 passing yards, 38 touchdowns and five interceptions while completing 65.6 percent of his passes.

The Packers host the Cowboys in the second round of the playoffs on Sunday at 1:05 p.m. ET.
