Green Bay QB Aaron Rodgers believes that he’ll be ready to go for his team’s game against the Lions on Sunday. Price per head bookmaking companies learned that the player will also be set to hit the field if the Packers’ game plan must change due to his injury to the calf.
“I’m sure we can adjust accordingly if I’m not ready to fully move around,” said Rodgers. “But I’d like to think with the Christmas holiday and everything that comes with it, that I’ll be able to move around well enough.”
On Tuesday, Rodgers was able to hold practice, and the players are usually off on this day. But on Thursday, the team was given the day off due to Christmas, so the practice session on Tuesday was mostly made up of half-speed periods as well as the players getting individual drills.
The QB participated in the part of practice open to the media, and he seemed to be doing alright with his throwing. But in this session, no running was required in any of the drills.
“Aaron looked great,” said coach McCarthy. “He’s getting better.”
Last Sunday, Rodgers suffered a strained left calf in the team’s win over the Bucs, but he didn’t stop playing. McCarthy decided to not have the team do most of his play sheet’s roll-out passes, and instead he wanted Rodgers to not leave the pocket. The player still proved to be very effective, as in the team’s 20-3 win he was able to complete 31 out of 40 passes made for 318 yards and a TD.
In the game, the player was also stricken with the flu.
“I’m feeling good, except for the sickness and the calf thing,” said the QB. “Other than that, I’m great.”
Whoever wins the meeting on Sunday will clinch the title in the NFC North, and if it happens to be Green Bay, the team is also set to get a bye in the a first round for the NFL playoffs. Price per head bookmaking companies saw that the Lions and Packers were already able to win berths for the playoffs. Green bay are in a bid to try to finish what was an undefeated season in their home games, as Detroit are looking to win in Wisconsin for the first time since 1991, and many fans believe that they must be very hungry for a victory.
