Andy Dalton replacing Aaron Rodgers at Pro Bowl


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2015) Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton, who threw 19 touchdowns and 17 interceptions, is going to the Pro Bowl in place of Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, the Bengals announced. Rodgers pulled out due to his calf injury.

This will be Dalton's second Pro Bowl, as he also made it in 2011.


Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers held under 200 yards in loss


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw for just 178 yards on 19 of 34 passing in Green Bay's 28-22 loss to the Seahawks in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

After settling for field goals on their first two chances, Rodgers scrambled around the pocket before finding wide receiver Randall Cobb in the back of the end zone for a 13-yard touchdown.

Despite the strong early start, Rodgers threw two interceptions and was limping most of the second half, most noticeably on a 12 yard scramble to get out of bounds to set a field goal late.

"It's going to be a missed opportunity that we're probably going to think about the rest of my career," Rodgers said. "We were the better team today and we played well enough to win and we can't blame anybody but ourselves."


Packers Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy good to go for Sunday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Eddie Lacy are both active for Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Seahawks.

Rodgers, who is dealing with a torn calf muscle, played through the injury last week and was considered probable for the contest.

Lacy was dealing with a knee injury, but was also considered probable for the game.

The Packers are currently 8-point underdogs against the Seahawks Sunday.


Packers QB Rodgers, RB Lacy listed as probable for NFC title game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/16/2015) The Packers announced Friday quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) and running back Eddie Lacy (knee) are both listed as probable for Sunday's NFC title game at Seattle. Defensive end Josh Boyd (ankle) and guard Josh Sitton (toe) are also probable.

"Aaron is getting ready to play," McCarthy said during his Friday press conference. "Looks good. Everything is on schedule."

McCarthy also had a positive report on Lacy.

"Looks good to me," McCarthy said.

The Seahawks are considered 7 1/2-point favorites for Sunday's game.


Seahawks' Earl Thomas: 'I'm not buying into' Rodgers' leg injury


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) Seahawks safety Earl Thomas is not a believer of the calf injury Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered late in the season. He told reporters on Thursday that he and the rest of his defensive unit won't play Rodgers any differently, despite his injury, according to ESPN.

"I'm not buying into this leg issue," Thomas said. "I saw him scramble close to the goal line on the Cowboys, so he's not fooling me with that. I'm not falling into that."

Rodgers avoided Richard Sherman's side and was limited to 189 passing yards, with one touchdown and one interception in this year's season opener against Seattle. Thomas had just five combined tackles that night. He finished the season with 97 tackles, three forced fumbles and one interception.

Seattle is a 7 1/2-point home favorite in Sunday's NFC Championship Game against Green Bay.


Aaron Rodgers gets in a limited practice Thursday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who sat out Wednesday's practice with his calf injury, participated in a portion of practice Thursday, including two team periods, coach Mike McCarthy said.

"He's getting ready to play," McCarthy said. Asked how Rodgers looked compared to last week, the coach said: "I don't do comparisons. He's getting ready to play."

Rodgers will play but lacks his usual mobility. Green Bay is a 7.5-point underdog in Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Seattle.


Packers' Aaron Rodgers on Richard Sherman: I'll throw to open guy


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was bombarded with questions regarding his team's failure to throw at Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman in the season opener. He reiterated that although he has plenty of respect for Sherman, he plans to throw to the open man come Sunday's NFC title game at Seattle, per the team's official website.

"I plan to throw it to the open guy. That's the way I've played for a number of years. I'll go through my progressions and play the way I've always played," Rodgers said. "It's important to throw it to the right and to the left a little."

The Packers kept their top receiver, Jordy Nelson on the opposite side of the All-Pro corner. Sherman never switched sides to cover Nelson. Instead, he was on Jarrett Boykin or Davante Adams throughout the night. As a result, Boykin and Adams were held without a grab, but Nelson came down with nine passes for 83 yards and Randall Cobb registered 58 yards on six receptions. The Packers still lost 36-16 in Week 1, and Rodgers was limited to 189 passing yards, with one touchdown and one interception.

Rodgers missed practice Wednesday due to a lingering calf injury, but noted that he feels "pretty similar" to how he felt a week ago against Dallas.

The Packers are 7 1/2-point underdogs for Sunday's championship game.


QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) misses Wednesday's practice again


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/14/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers did not practice Wednesday due to a lingering calf injury. Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien handled the quarterback reps Wednesday.

Rodgers also missed practice last week before leading Green Bay to a playoff win against the Cowboys on Sunday, clinching a spot in the NFC title game at Seattle. The Packers are 7 1/2-point underdogs for Sunday's championship game.


Aaron Rodgers says injured calf has not improved


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/13/2015) While Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers felt better this week than last, Rodgers wasn't nearly as encouraging Tuesday. After saying he didn't significantly aggravate his left calf strain in the playoff win over Dallas, Rodgers continued:

"It's not better. It's worse than when I started the game but it's doing OK. I'm tired of talking about it. It is what it is. It's a significant injury. I was able to get through it."

Rodgers made the comments on his weekly radio show on ESPN Wisconsin 540 AM, and they were transcribed by the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Rodgers said he used hand signals to let team physician Patrick McKenzie know how he was feeling. "Thumb down meant actually I was feeling pretty good, so I was able to give him the thumb down a couple times," Rodgers said.

Rodgers was on fire in the second half against the Cowboys, hitting 15 of 20 throws for 226 yards and two touchdowns. He played almost the entire game in the shotgun.

"Nothing changed in the approach," Rodgers said on the radio show. "There was some apprehension on getting out of the pocket that stayed with me the entire game. I was for whatever reason able to move to my left a little easier, hopping on my right (foot) and not having to put a lot of pressure on my left foot."

Green Bay is a 7.5-point underdog at Seattle in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.


McCarthy: '(Rodgers) feels better this week than this time last week'


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2015) Packers coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Monday quarterback Aaron Rodgers made it through the game very well and that he feels better this week than he did last week.

Rodgers, who is playing through a torn calf muscle, completed 24 of 35 passes for 316 yards with three touchdowns in Green Bay's 26-21 win over the Cowboys Sunday. He is set to go through treatment Monday and Tuesday, as does the rest of the team.

It is unknown whether Rodgers will practice over the next few days in preparation for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks.

Green Bay is currently a 7 1/2-point underdog.


Packers in title game: Biggest underdogs ever with Aaron Rodgers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2015) The Packers opened as 7-point underdogs in next Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Seattle -- the biggest underdogs they've ever been with Aaron Rodgers at quarterback, reports Pro Football Talk. Early action on Seattle pushed the line to 7.5 at most sportsbooks.

Citing the Spreadapedia database, PFT said the Packers have never closed as underdogs of seven or more points in any of Rodgers' 113 starts, including playoffs.

In fact, according to PFT, only once has Green Bay been even a 6-point dog with Rodgers starting. It happened in 2010 at the Jets, and the Packers won 9-0.

In Mike McCarthy's nine-year tenure, the Packers have been underdogs of a touchdown or more only three times. Two came in 2006 before Rodgers took over as the fulltime starter. In 2010, with Matt Flynn starting, Green Bay was a 14.5-point underdog at New England.

The large spread next Sunday stems from Seattle's home dominance, the Seahawks' season-opening 36-16 win over the Packers, and Rodgers' calf injury, which has all but eliminated his mobility.

In the AFC Championship Game, New England opened as a 7-point favorite over Indianapolis. The line was holding as of late Sunday night.


Aaron Rodgers: 'I think I've got 120 minutes left in me'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2015) Although his sprained left calf felt "a little bit worse" after Sunday's playoff win, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is confident he'll be able to play effectively in the NFC Championship Game and, potentially, the Super Bowl.

"I think I've got 120 minutes left in me," Rodgers said, per ESPN.com. "So I'm going to do everything I can to make sure I can play all those minutes."

Rodgers, who's lacking his usual mobility, is not expected to practice much this week ahead of next Sunday's NFC title game in Seattle. He went through limited practices last Thursday and Friday, then lit up the Cowboys for 316 yards and three touchdowns in the 26-21 victory.

Green Bay is a 7-point underdog at Seattle.


Aaron Rodgers throws three TDs in divisional playoff win vs. Dallas


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers overcame a lingering calf injury to throw three touchdowns during a 26-21 win during Sunday's divisional playoff game vs. Dallas. Rodgers completed 24 of 35 passes for 316 yards and no interceptions, while rushing for minus-4 yards on four carries.

Rodgers, who came into the game as probable, wasted little time getting Green Bay on the scoreboard. He threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Quarless on the Packers' opening drive in the first quarter, giving Green Bay a 7-0 lead.

Rodgers' last two touchdowns were clutch in the second half. He connected with Davante Adams on a 46-yard touchdown play late in the third quarter to give Green Bay a 21-20 lead. Although, Adams deserves plenty of credit for that play as he made a few defenders miss on his way to the end zone.

Rodgers then put Green Bay ahead for good with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Richard Rodgers with 9:10 left in the game. Rodgers was able to avoid the pass rush and fire a pass between two defenders to his tight end.

The Packers will now move onto the NFC Championship Game at Seattle next Sunday.


Packers QB Aaron Rodgers active for divisional playoff game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2015) As expected, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf) was cleared to start Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Cowboys. Rodgers was listed as probable on the injury report.

The Packers are considered 5 1/2-point favorites for Sunday's playoff game. Rodgers is set to face a Cowboys defense that allowed 251.9 passing yards per game during the 2014 regular season. The Cowboys also allowed 22 passing touchdowns in 16 games.


Packers enter playoff opener with four probables


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) Packers safety Sean Richardson (knee) was the only Green Bay player labeled questionable for Sunday's playoff game against Dallas. Meanwhile, quarterback Aaron Rodgers (calf), defensive tackle Josh Boyd (knee), cornerback Davon House (shoulder) and guard Josh Sitton (toe) were all listed as probable.

Packers' Aaron Rodgers (calf) officially probable for Dallas game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/9/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is dealing with a slight tear in his calf muscle in addition to a calf strain, was a limited participant in practice Friday and was officially labeled as probable for Sunday's pivotal playoff game against the Cowboys, per the team's official website.

"Aaron Rodgers came through the practice with everything OK. Feels good today. I feel he's going to be available for the game," coach Mike McCarthy told reporters.

The decision to list Rodgers as probable doesn't come as much of a surprise, after being a limited participant on back-to-back days. The Packers are 5 1/2-point favorites for Sunday's divisional playoff game at Lambeau Field, per VegasInsider.com.


Report: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has slight tear in calf muscle


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a slight tear in his calf muscle, sources told ESPN. He is also dealing with a significant strain.

The injury is not expected to sideline Rodgers for Sunday's playoff game vs. Dallas, but it could impact his mobility.

"There’s no question he will play, but there’s also no question he will not be 100 percent," said one doctor familiar with the injury. "The question is whether he’ll be 95 percent or 50 percent."

Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers practiced during the team periods Thursday. McCarthy added Rodgers took 50-60 percent of the reps in practice.

The Packers remain 6-point favorites for Sunday's divisional playoff game.


Packers' McCarthy: Rodgers will get some practice reps Thursday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/8/2015) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said quarterback Aaron Rodgers will split time Thursday between rehabbing his calf injury and practicing with the team, according to SiriusXM NFL Radio.

Rodgers sat out practice Wednesday, but McCarthy doesn't seem concerned about his availability for Sunday's playoff game against the Cowboys.

"I plan on Aaron playing Sunday," McCarthy said Wednesday. "Aaron is totally into the game plan. He's taken all the reps in the walk-throughs. Mentally, he's right on top of it."

The Packers remain 6-point favorites for Sunday's divisional playoff game.


Packers' McCarthy: 'I plan on Aaron Rodgers playing Sunday'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2015) Packers coach Mike McCarthy indicated Wednesday quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on track to start Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Cowboys, despite missing practice Wednesday due to a lingering calf injury.

"I plan on Aaron playing Sunday," McCarthy said. "Today's schedule was for him to stay exclusively in the training room. Aaron is totally into the game plan. He's taken all the reps in the walk-throughs. Mentally, he's right on top of it."

Backup quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien took the reps in practice Wednesday with Rodgers sidelined. The Packers are 6-point favorites for Sunday's playoff game.


Packers QB Aaron Rodgers not practicing Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/7/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was absent from the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media. Backup quarterbacks Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien were taking all the reps as the team is preparing for Sunday's divisional playoff game against the Cowboys.

Rodgers indicated he might miss practice time this week because of a lingering calf injury. However, it doesn't appear the injury will keep him sidelined for Sunday's game.

"It feels better," Rodgers told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Tuesday. "We'll see what happens this week, as far as practice reps. Everybody's so concerned about them. I'm not. And my teammates aren't either. We'd like to get out there at some point and move around a little bit. It just depends on how I'm feeling."

The Packers are 6-point favorites for Sunday's playoff game.


Aaron Rodgers not worried about missing practice reps


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers might miss practice time this week due to his injured calf, but he doesn't think that will hinder him Sunday against the Cowboys.

"It feels better," Rodgers told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "We'll see what happens this week, as far as practice reps. Everybody's so concerned about them. I'm not. And my teammates aren't either. We'd like to get out there at some point and move around a little bit. It just depends on how I'm feeling."

Rodgers has been getting treatment, including acupuncture, and will be evaluated by doctors Wednesday, the paper said. Rodgers said "there's always a chance" he could practice some Wednesday.

Green Bay is a 6-point home favorite.


McCarthy: Rodgers progressing, has a 'hip in his hop'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/6/2015) Packers coach Mike McCarthy is expressing no concern about quarterback Aaron Rodgers' calf injury, reports the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Rodgers is progressing and has a "hip in his hop," the coach said.

Rodgers will be evaluated Wednesday morning, at which time the team will chart his practice plan. Even if Rodgers misses some practice time this week, McCarthy isn't worried about the offense losing any timing, the paper said.

"Look at the way he played in the second half of the Detroit game," McCarthy said. "He's learned to play through different situations. He has continuity with his teammates. But the way he progresses, he's a quick healer. ... He'll be in pretty good shape come Sunday."

Green Bay is a 6-point home favorite over Dallas in Sunday's divisional playoff game.


Aaron Rodgers to be evaluated Wednesday, could practice


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2015) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday the team will have quarterback Aaron Rodgers evaluated by team doctors this Wednesday to set up his practice plan for the week.

Rodgers did not participate in practice last week so he could receive treatment on his ailing calf injury. He was not expected to return to practice before Thursday of this week. 

The Packers are currently 6 1/2-point favorites against the Cowboys in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs.


Packers' Aaron Rodgers unlikely to practice until Thursday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/2/2015) Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Friday in his press conference quarterback Aaron Rodgers is still receiving treatment for his calf injury and doesn't expect to see him on the field until 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."

Rodgers injured his calf in Week 17 against the Lions while throwing a touchdown pass to Randall Cobb. He left the game briefly but was able to return in the second half. 

The Packers will play Jan. 11 against the highest-seeded team left in the NFC playoffs.


Suh: My feet were numb, didn't know I was stepping on Rodgers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/31/2014) In his successful appeal, Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh claimed his feet were numb "and he couldn't tell the difference between [Packers quarterback] Aaron Rodgers' feet and the ground," reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

The NFL initially suspended Suh one game for stomping on Rodgers' calf and ankle Week 17, then reduced the punishment on appeal to a $70,000 fine without a suspension.

It seems Suh's explanation might have helped him get on the field for Sunday's playoff game at Dallas.

Rodgers expressed skepticism about Suh's intentions before the appeal ruling. "If you step on something in your everyday life, or if you step on somebody on the field, the first reaction seems to be looking back and maybe apologizing with your hands," Rodgers told 540 ESPN in Milwaukee. "Or pulling your foot back right away. And I'm just not sure that's what happened."

Asked about the incident at a press conference Wednesday, Suh repeatedly said: "Next question."

The Lions are 7-point underdogs at Dallas, with most observers giving them a better chance at the upset thanks to Suh's presence.
