Aaron Rodgers didn’t practice on Wednesday and isn’t expected to do much, if anything on Thursday as the Green Bay Packers get ready for Sunday’s NFC North matchup against the Chicago Bears.
Rodgers worked in the teams rehab group on Wednesday, as he continues to nurse a right calf injury sustained early in last week’s win over Seattle.
Rodgers went through a similar injury back in 2014, although it was an injury to the opposite (left) calf.
Rodgers was hobbling around during the game against the Seahawks, but the end result wasn’t compromised. In fact, Rodgers may have had his best game of the season.
The Packers will spend some time outside today (Thursday), but backup Brett Hundley is expected to handle those practice snaps.
Coach Mike McCarthy indicated during his Wednesday press conference that tight end Jared Cook should play in Sunday’s game at Chicago. McCarthy said they needed to see Cook go through the practice week, but he didn’t have any reason to think Cook wouldn’t be ready. Cook suffered a chest injury against Seattle and didn’t return to the game.
Running back James Starks was added to the injury list, suffering an apparent concussion. He was not at practice on Wednesday.
