Packers QB Aaron Rodgers could only have a single complete practice session left before the team’s NFC divisional playoff clash getting underway on the 11th of January, and price per head agents hope to see the player completely healthy before this crucial meeting.
On Friday, coach Mike McCarthy said that it’s possible that Rodgers won’t hold practice until later on next week due to the injury that he suffered in the calf – something that continues to trouble the player. On Friday, he wasn’t practicing with the team when they returned from a break of three days.
The QB was instead being treated for the calf strain that first showed up in Week 16 when the Packers took on the Bucs, but got worse when they faced the Lions in the last game of the season.
“We’ll do the same tomorrow, and I really don’t see him getting on the practice field until Thursday probably at the earliest,” said McCarthy on Friday.
The coach said that next week Green Bay will practice like they normally do – keeping the same routine, which means that they will hold full practice on Wednesday as well as on Thursday, and on Saturday they will hold a short practice session. This season, Green Bay didn’t practice on Fridays during regular weeks.
The QB wasn’t worried about having less work. All week, the player was limited in practice before the team faced Detroit.
But price per head agents know that right now a bigger problem is how his calf is doing, and Packers fans seriously hope that it’s getting better.
“The calf is slowly progressing,” said Rodgers. “I wasn’t out there today, but yeah, we’re right where we need to be in getting ready to hopefully get on the field next week.”
Green Bay were also holding practice without Jordy Nelson, their favored WR, who had a personal issue and wasn’t able to attend.
Now the team wants to see who they will take on in the playoff game, and so do the fans. It could be the Cowboys, Panthers, or Cardinals.
Packers fans are very worried when it comes to Rodgers and his calf, but many remain hopeful and confident, and would like to see him in very good health for this playoff game, as they know how much the team depends on him.
