The Green Bay Packers may have to deal with a limited Aaron Rodgers in the Divisional Round as he reportedly has a calf strain and tear.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers injured his calf in the regular-season finale against the Detroit Lions and left for a brief period of time before leading his team to a 30-20 win and the NFC North title.
The Packers have been resting on a first-round bye, giving Rodgers much-needed healing time. However, the MVP frontrunner will not likely be 100 percent for the Divisional Round against the Dallas Cowboys due to a calf strain and tear.
The Packers quarterback plans to play, but his mobility may be affected.
Rodgers was able to overcome his injury against the Lions though and put on a fantastic performance, so he will look to do the same against the Cowboys and lead his team to the NFC Championship.
