The Green Bay Packers returned to practice on Friday to begin preparing for their divisional playoff game. As expected, injured quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn’t running around and tearing it up.
Rodgers, who aggravated his calf injury in week 17 against Detroit, probably won’t be running around and tearing it up for a while either.
Coach Mike McCarthy said the earliest Rodgers would do any work on the field would be Thursday.
“Aaron is doing well. He’s been in treatment during the practice period,” McCarthy said. “We’ll do the same tomorrow. I really don’t see him getting on the practice field until Thursday at the earliest.”
As with the week prior to the Detroit game, which also saw Rodgers’ practice time limited, McCarthy said he’s unconcerned.
“I’m not concerned,” McCarthy said. “He’s already started the preparation process. We know the direction we want to go. He’ll be prepared. What it’s important is for him to rep the things he feels he needs to. I’m not really concerned.”
After the way Rodgers played against the Lions with the same amount of practice time, we’re not terribly concerned either.
Then again, we have no idea who the Packers are playing next week and we won’t know until sometime on Sunday.
Whoever it is, we know Rodgers won’t be at 100 percent.
Not that he’d ever do it, but I think this guy could wake up in the back seat of his truck two hours before the game, hungover as hell from a week-long bender and beat 90% of the teams in the league.
Well said Savage57, well said.
I think we can all agree it’s time to sit this prima Donna and go with the guy who has the proven track record of winning the come from behind games, namely one Matt Flynn. I for one am sick of this guy and his “discount double check” or his “pump you up” or whatever it is he’s more interested in than football this week. Trade him! He’s only going to bring down this proud franchise!
i was like, “you serious?” then i saw your username. Good trolling sir!
Well we know flynn can beat the cowboys.
Mrs.Flynn you are a blow up dolly that’s as nasty as a thug named suh.
Stand by your man Mrs.Flynn. With all the extra practice time Matt should be in his groove. If Coach Mike isn’t concerned then I’m not concerned.Football is a TEAM game.Brad Jones needs to ride the bench for this game. TEAM can handle only so much stupidity though. Go Pack Go!!!
Hilarious Mrs Flynn. Savage, I love your post. Yes he could. We have this!!
