Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will not let his calf injury affect his playing status for Week 17.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers got back on track with a solid performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a 20-3 win after struggling in a loss to the Buffalo Bills.
Rodgers threw for 318 yards and a touchdown pass on 31-of-40 passing, but he played with the flu and a calf injury.
The Packers quarterback immediately insisted that he would not miss the regular season finale against the Detroit Lions.
“I’ll be OK for next week. I hurt my calf pretty good, but the training staff helped me get through it. Just put some heat on and just tried to push through it,” Rodgers said to ESPN Wisconsin.
The Packers and Lions both have an 11-4 record and have clinched a playoff spot, but they will be battling for the NFC North title.
The game will be held in Green Bay, where the Packers will look to finish with a perfect record as Rodgers hopes to widen the gap in the MVP race.
