The extent of Aaron Rodgers' strained calf muscle has proven to be more severe than was recenty disclosed. It has been reported that a torn calf muscle has only allowed him to take 50-60 percent of his snaps in practice this week. This is not a good sign however the Packers are treating this injury very seriously and are having Rodgers worked on constantly. The issue could be his limited mobility against a surging Cowboy's pass rush. Another issue could be in Rodger's throwing motion and how he can throw the deep ball.
This injury should be monitored throughout the weekend especially if Matt Flynn is still the Packer's backup. The highly anticipated Ice Bowl rematch will have both teams a little bit banged up as the Cowboys were missing Rolando McClain, Anthony Hitchens, Doug Free, Jeremy Mincey, and Terrell McClain from practice on Thursday. Both teams are expected to have most of their rosters ready for Sunday.
