Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tweaked his calf while scrambling late in his rout of the Houston Texans. He left that ballgame before its conclusion but it is not anticipated that he will miss Sunday's game against the St. Louis Rams. Head coach Mike McCarthy said today that he "isn't concerned" about Rodgers' playing status. The Pack rank a surprising 14th in passing offense and will of course need Rodgers fully healthy.
Frankly, I wouldn't have been surprised if Rodgers said his arm was sore from throwing all those touchdowns last week and he needed a day off. After the first three games of the season, he had thrown three TDs and two INTs. After six games, he's thrown 16 TDs and four INTs. Congrats to everyone who stayed patient with him because you know not everyone did. Green Bay still has five more divisional games on their schedule so there's no reason for panic after a 3-3 start. Continue starting him as you normally would.
