Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was back on the practice field Thursday after resting and undergoing treatment on his injured left calf for more than a week.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers looked fine moving around on the field and that he took approximately 50 percent to 60 perceet of the reps with the Green Bay offense. He sat out two light team practices last week and Wednesday’s session.
“Aaron practiced in the team periods. He looked good,” McCarthy said. “He went down and did everything we asked him to do today. It’s always a better practice when he’s out there.”
ESPN reported earlier Thursday that Rodgers has a slight tear in the calf in addition to the strain.
Rodgers said before returning to practice that he intended to play against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday in an NFC divisional round game in Green Bay.
