Even with three days off this week, there's a good chance Aaron Rodgers won't be ready to practice when the Green Bay Packers reconvene on Friday.
Rodgers said Tuesday on his ESPN Milwaukee radio show that he has been getting treatment on his injured left calf muscle "around the clock" and indicated he may not practice until next week.
"I'm going to want to get some on-the-field reps starting next week when we get into our preparation when we figure out who our opponent is," Rodgers said on his show. "So I'm going to need to be on the field doing that, but it's a significant injury so you can't really say either way what percentage it's going to be in the game. I just don't know. But I hope it's going to be feeling better than it was this weekend."
Because they have the bye and don't play until Jan. 11 in the divisional round of the playoffs, the Packers won't have to file an official injury report until next week, so there's a good chance they will be vague about Rodgers' participation in practice on Friday and Saturday.
