According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a slight tear in his calf in addition to his strain. Rodgers is still expected to play during Sunday’s divisional round game against Dallas, but nobody knows if he’s capable of playing through it.
“There’s no question he will play, but there’s also no question he will not be 100 percent,” a doctor familiar with the injury told Schefter. “The question is whether he’ll be 95 percent or 50 percent.”
The Packers held Rodgers out of practice on Wednesday, and it’s likely his practice time will be limited the rest of the week. Even if Rodgers is able to overcome his injury and defeat the Cowboys, his calf could be an issue during the Conference Championship and/or the Super Bowl. This is a big setback for Green Bay.
