Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers took the majority of snaps at practice Thursday in preparation for Sunday's NFC Divisional Playoff game against Dallas.
Rodgers has a strained left calf that has also been reported as a slight tear, an injury he originally suffered in a Week 16 game against Tampa Bay and aggravated during Green Bay's division-clinching win over Detroit in the final week of the regular season.
"Aaron practiced in the team periods," said Packers coach Mike McCarthy on Thursday. "He looked good. He went down and did everything we asked him to do today."
McCarthy said Rodgers took about 50-to-60 percent of the reps during Thursday's workout.
Rodgers was officially listed as a limited participant in practice Thursday, similar to what he did before the Week 17 game against the Lions. He missed two series during the Detroit game after limping off the field, but returned and led the Packers to a 30-20 victory that gave Green Bay the NFC North title and a much-needed first-round bye that enabled the former MVP to rest his ailing calf.
The 31-year-old veteran put up MVP-like numbers again in 2014, completing 65.6 percent of his passes for 4,381 yards with 38 touchdowns and just five interceptions.
