On Tuesday, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed that he hurt his leg in the win over the Texans and said “Probably. Maybe. We’ll see,” when asked if he would be on the injury report this week.
The Packers practiced Wednesday and Rodgers wound up on the injury report. Rodgers was a limited participant in practice with what the team calls a calf injury. Per Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, coach Mike McCarthy said that he didn’t have a lot of concern over Rodgers’ status and that the team would see how the quarterback was feeling on Thursday. Graham Harrell took snaps with the first team while Rodgers rested.
Unless his status gets downgraded later in the week, it seems likely that Rodgers will play against the Rams. The outlook is a little less positive for two other starters.
Wide receiver Greg Jennings and defensive tackle B.J. Raji didn’t practice Wednesday. Jennings has missed the last two games with a groin injury and the team has said they want to keep him shut down until he’s fully recovered after he re-injured himself in his first comeback attempt. Raji hurt his ankle in the loss to the Colts and sat out against Houston, so his status is one to monitor as the week progresses.
