Only a few days away from a Divisional Playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers sat out Wednesday’s practice with a calf injury.
According to Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com, the Packers quarterback was not present for the start of practice, with just Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien there.
Rodgers suffered a calf injury in the NFL season finale against the Detroit Lions, which caused him to miss several series in the game. Rodgers has three more days to prepare before Sunday’s game with the Cowboys.
While Rodgers should be fine without the Wednesday reps, the condition of his calf is a major concern.
Rodgers this season finished 2nd in the league with 38 passing TDs, and had only 5 INTs as well as a league-low 1.0% INT rate (both career lows).
Sunday’s matchup will be the first time since the 1967 NFL Championship that the Cowboys and Packers have played in the postseason.
