Most avid NFL fans already know that Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is limited with a calf injury and will continue to be on Sunday, but the Dallas Cowboys have injuries of their own.
Rodgers will take on the Dallas Cowboys defense as the two teams face each other in the NFC Divisional Round on Sunday, but the Cowboys have four injuries on their defense.
Defensive end Jeremy Mincey and linebacker Rolando McClain are each nursing concussions, and linebacker Anthony Hitchens and defensive tackle Terrell McClain are dealing with ankle injuries.
The defensive tackle missed practice, so the Cowboys may be down two defensive tackles since Henry Melton is out for the season. Hitchens is expected to play though, and Mincey and McClain are reportedly making progress with their concussions.
