Aaron Rodgers injures calf

Getty Images

The Packers emerged from Sunday’s showdown against the Seahawks with a win. However, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers emerged from the game with an injured calf.

He told FOX’s Erin Andrews after the game that he injured his calf on the first third down play of the game, and that he believes it happened due to compensating for a hamstring he injured 13 days ago against the Eagles.

Rodgers, who seemed happy despite the injury, said he’ll have a long week of rehab before next Sunday’s game at Chicago.

Two years ago, Rodgers played with an injured calf. It limited his mobility but not his effectiveness.

The Packers were more than effective against Seattle, and Green Bay looks like a team that can make good on Rodgers’ suggestion from nearly three weeks ago that they can run the table.

  1. So he lit up the no.1 scoring defense with both of his legs banged up?

    Sucks he can’t scramble (as much) – but tbh… This offense is far more effective when he gets in a rhythm with quick passes instead of holding the ball forever and getting sacked/going 3 & out.

  2. Funny, Packers think they’re back in the playoff hunt. Well, it’s just too late if they didn’t get blow out and got embarrassed by the Colts and Cowboys. They could but too late cuz they’re going to lose next week. Well, there’s always next week and the week after that. Oh wait, they’re afraid to play the Vikings bc they always lose they Zimmer’s defense.

    Nope, not the number 1 scoring defense minus Earl Thomas, and Aaron capitalized on that fact. It’s not news.

  4. You vikings trolls are scared. You should be. Your worry is evident. Cyclops can’t save your offense. See you in 2 weeks when we destroy your hopes and dreams!

  5. Seahawks had no pass rush whatsoever. Not gonna be like that playing the Vikings 2 weeks from now.

    ——————————————————

    Nope, it’s going to be worse!

  6. Packnlooked good- even w/ a pretty banged up team. Kam Chancellor is one heck of a ball player. And the Vikings have the most paranoid, annoying fans in football.

    The vikings fans are just sad at this point. No one is afraid of what the queens are putting on the field anymore. The Packers are getting healthier on defense, especially not having to start 4th string DB’s so the Colt/Cowboy losses are a thing of the past. We smoke the Bears and queens. Only Detroit has a shot to hang with us as we heal. Keep talking crap queens fans cause it is your last week to do it.

  8. Better an injured calf than an injured ego. Aaron can’t stand living without his enormous fully raging out of control ego.

  9. The Vikings just eked out a victory against the Jaguars and they are here saying how the Packers playoff chances are shot? Wow. I mean, just wow. I guess they’re just getting their final idiot points in before the Packers blow ’em out week 16.

  10. We destroy one of the best teams in the league and Viking fans are still talking. Don’t you fellas have anything better to do?

    The Packers weren’t the great offense when Nelson tore his ACL last season, and not only was GB held to that high standard last year, also this one due to the fact that he is “healthy” this year, but he finally seems to be getting closer to his old self.

    When you become great in a facet of a game, whether its offense, defense,or special teams. You are expected to maintain that high standard regardless if you are missing a “Key Piece” It doesn’t matter if Seattle is missing a great safety, or the Packers are using a WR at RB. “It should work.”

    That’s part of dealing with expectations, speaking of expectations, I am glad that GB didn’t stoop into the trash talking post play Personal Fouls that the Seahawks try to bait opponents into.

  12. The queen’s knock off a terrible Jags team and suddenly their fan base starts talking smack. GB knocks off the number 2 seed in the NFC. Two teams going in opposite directions.

    It certainly is a luxury to have the most heroic player in the league.

    A truly dominant victory by the greatest franchise in the history of professional sports – the Green Bay Packers.
    ______________

    The New York Yankees, Montreal Canadiens and Boston Celtics all say hello and 13 championships in 97 years is a nice little start.

  15. Get back to me when and if Packers make the playoff. Right now it’s yippy yap Blah blah blah. If Packers were that good they would have already clinched the playoff, just like Packer fans claim they would by week 12.lol

  16. Rodgers doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. He’s a great QB and he is also a tough QB.
    And can we stop all the talk that Russell Wilson is better than Aaron Rodgers? He couldn’t shine Rodgers’ shoes!
    Great win by the Packers today. It’s getting interested and I know the Vikings and Lions aren’t counting the Packers out at all.
    After Richard Sherman pulled one of his dirty tactics today by knocking Devante Adams down when he was running his route (the ball was on the other side of the field), it was great seeing him and his teammates get it handed to them today. That hit should have been a penalty on Sherman, but he got away with it. He tried to intimidate Adams, but when Adams got in his face, he looked like a midget.
    And Adams paid Sherman back later with a great block on him to get Jeff Janis in the end zone on the end around.
    Seeing Sherman on the Seahawks bench late in the game looking like a boxer who just got knocked out and was still in the Twilight Zone was awesome!!
    Sherman thinks he’s great, but everybody knows the guy who makes that secondary go is Earl Thomas.

    7 – 6 and pack fans bragging.
    LOL
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Better to be 7-6 and trending decidedly upward with three good wins in a row than to be 7-6 and circling the drain with your only recent win a squeaker against a team having a really tough year.

  18. All three remaining Packer games are in the Division, so they control their own destiny IF they can get a little help from either the Giants or the Cowboys vs. the Lions. If the Lions win both of those games on the road, I salute them. As for the Vikings, meh.

  19. Funny packer fans disparaging the vikes win over the jags. Seems to me the packers barely held on to beat those very same jags earlier to season. But I’ll give them credit for the win today. Seattle looked terrible and Wilson couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn. The whole team looked like they had just woken up from a bad nap. Three games to go. Let the best team win.

    Last time I checked, 7-6 is 7-6.
    You don’t get extra points for “trending up”.

    Please note that the pack are still behind the vikes.

    If the Cowboys win tonight then the Packers will benefit regardless of who wins the Lions-Giants game (Packers have wildcard tiebreaker over G-men).

    Just win baby. The rest will take care of itself.

    If you have kids, I hope you’re better at giving them credit than what you displayed here.

    history lesson: Min fans were claiming the North was “locked up” after 5-0. As i said then, you don’t run your mouth after 5 weeks. as it stands now, you are in the way of a reinvigorated packers team. best of luck.

  25. Packers still suck as always. The Seahawks are not the same team that went to the Super Bowl. Don’t get too excited you might get eliminated next week.

  26. Not a Packers fan, but it seems like his demise has been greatly exaggerated. I looked at the box and noticed the NFL’s all-time leader in QB Rating, Y/A and Int% is having another typically great – 100ish QBR, 65 cmp%, 4 to 1 TD/INT ratio, etc – season.

  27. I figured the comment section would be dominated by the Queen fans trying to suck some of fun out of a big win.

    I say let it rest till Christmas Eve when one team will win and have a great chance at the playoffs and the loser will be effectively eliminated for the year. I think I know which team is headed home, for a 55th straight year without a Superbowl.

  28. I wouldn’t be taking trash until you actually make it to the playoff

    You’ve already loss to the Vikings and will lose again. I wouldn’t be taking trash until you actually make it to the playoff.
    _______________

    The Packers have won 3 games int he last 3 weeks, while the VIkings have won 3 games since Octobert 9th.

    While the Packers hole put them into this spot, I would tap the breaks on all the talk, the Seahawks aren’t the same team that was in the Superbowl, well neither were the Panthers, and you guys were all AMPED about that. Just be glad that the Jags are too inconsistent to make teams pay for not getting into the end zone against them.

  30. Wow @Codythao what is it like having so many down votes on your comments? Every time I see your name I see roughly the same ratio of likes/dislikes as the Vikings superbowl record. In case you didn’t know, it’s 0-4. Oh and by the way, wide left.

  31. If you’re going to troll, at least come up with something good or original. That way the other 15 accounts you have don’t have to be the only others liking your comments.

  32. Yeah, my Packers are the greatest thing since third place sliced bread. We’re gonna beat all you other teams. Yup. And we’re gonna talk about it. Until we disappear. Just like we said we’d break in that new Vikings’ stadium with a win. And then all my Packers friends abandoned me. Where did you guys go? I was here. Where were you? Oh, I remember. Criticizing our Packers. Or hiding.

    ——————————-

    interesting thought, I don’t watch ever Packer game but that makes some sense.
    However I wonder if the scrambling is when opponents succeed in breaking up the rhythm rather than gambles for big plays made because of Rodgers faith in his phenomenal talent.
    If so then it could be a sign of problems rather than a problem.

  34. every day some dolt says something derogatory about Rodgers, but i would bet any amount that they would love to have him at qb for their crap team. especially if your qb is sam bradford. also, fran tarkenton sucked.

  35. Nice win Packer Nation.
    Your guys smacked us in the chops from the get-go.
    Rogers had all day and must be nice to have good set of WRs to throw too. You’re getting healthy- save for Rogers, but he is a gamer and even when he is limping around he still puts up numbers.
    Good luck rest of the way, hope week17 against Detroit is an important one for you. You guys have dug out from that 4-6 hole and are one of those teams no one would want to face come playoff time.

  36. Nope, not the number 1 scoring defense minus Earl Thomas, and Aaron capitalized on that fact. It’s not news.

    Not only that, they played to keep him in the pocket, figuring it was less dangerous than having him scramble around. In retrospect, it might have been a better tactic to force him out of the pocket and run around on a bum leg.
