Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed that Aaron Rodgers' "world" is not going to change very much with Tom Clements as playcaller.
Clements has worked with Rodgers since 2006, first as Green Bay's quarterbacks coach and then as offensive coordinator. There's a ton of continuity here even though McCarthy is stepping down as playcaller. Expect a seamless transition for the NFL's reigning MVP and fantasy's No. 1 quarterback. Feb 20 - 9:21 AM

Associated Press named Aaron Rodgers its 2014 NFL Most Valuable Player.

It's the second time in four years Rodgers has won the award. Rodgers posted a 38:5 TD/INT ratio this past season, leading the Packers to a first-round bye and the NFC's No. 2 seed. He received 31 votes, beating out J.J. Watt (13), DeMarco Murray (2), Tony Romo (2), Tom Brady (1), and Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner (1). Despite winning MVP, Rodgers lost to Murray for Offensive Player of the Year. Rodgers remains locked in as the NFL's premier quarterback going into 2015.

Aaron Rodgers (calf) expects to be back to full health in six weeks.

Rodgers was going to be hobbled in a potential Super Bowl appearance, but confirmed Tuesday that he would have suited up. Rodgers also admitted to being haunted by the Packers' NFC Championship Game loss. Despite Sunday's crushing defeat, Rodgers is the odds-on favorite for this year's MVP award.
Jan 20 - 3:48 PM

Aaron Rodgers completed 19-of-34 passes for 178 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Green Bay's 28-22, overtime loss to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game.

It will be a loss they remember for generations in Green Bay. The Pack entered the second half with a 16-0 lead, but let the Seahawks chip away as coach Mike McCarthy insisted on going into a shell. Bad luck played a part — Seattle recovered an onside kick, and converted a miracle two-point conversion — but arch conservatism will be the takeaway for Green Bay. As for Rodgers, his calf was still a glaring issue, as he refused to leave the pocket, and could barely hop on a late scramble. It was a crushing end to what was an MVP-caliber year for the 31-year-old signal caller. Simply without peer at the quarterback position, Rodgers will enter the 2015 season with considerable distance between himself and the QB2, but in real life and fantasy.

Aaron Rodgers (calf) is probable for Week 20 against the Seahawks.

Rodgers is fine for Sunday's NFC title game.
Jan 16 - 12:42 PM

Aaron Rodgers (calf) remained limited on Thursday.

Rodgers suited up for the "second part" of practice. "He's getting ready to play," were the words of coach Mike McCarthy. Rodgers' mobility is going to remain limited against the Seahawks, but barring a setback, he'll be out there for every down.
Jan 15 - 2:45 PM

Aaron Rodgers (calf) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Rodgers was held out last Wednesday, so this confirms that he hasn't had any setbacks. His status for the NFC Championship isn't in doubt. Rodgers was able to play effectively despite his calf injury in the Divisional Round, but his lack of mobility will be a concern at Seattle.
Jan 14 - 5:49 PM

Coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers' calf was feeling better Monday than it did one week earlier.

It's encouraging that Rodgers emerged from the Divisional Round win without any setbacks. "Aaron made it through the game very well," McCarthy said Monday. "Saw him today. He's getting better." Rodgers' lack of mobility didn't hurt him too much Sunday as the Cowboys struggled to mount a strong pass rush, but that won't be the case in Seattle. The Packers have been installed as a hefty 7.5-point underdog.

Aaron Rodgers (calf) took every snap from the shotgun during Sunday's win over the Cowboys.

Rodgers' left calf injury not only limited Green Bay's offensive playbook, but it also really hampered his mobility, accuracy and ability to follow through on passes. He couldn't make many plays outside the pocket, an area he typically excels. Of course, Rodgers somehow still completed 67.6 percent of his passes with three touchdowns and no interceptions. Formation predictability is a recipe for disaster when facing the Seahawks in Seattle, but we're certainly not going to doubt Rodgers. It's also worth noting that Eddie Lacy averaged 5.15 YPC out of the shotgun this year versus 4.30 out of other formations.
Jan 12 - 8:27 AM

Aaron Rodgers completed 23-of-34 throws for 304 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' Divisional Round win over the Cowboys.

Rodgers capped Green Bay's first drive with a four-yard dart to Andrew Quarless in the back of the end zone. The Packers' offense took a step back from there as Rodgers' mobility was clearly compromised by his injured calf, and also adversely affected his passing. He repeatedly missed his intended targets high. Rodgers settled down in the second half, carving up Dallas' defense on short throws. He hit Davante Adams for a 46-yard catch-and-run touchdown and rookie TE Richard Rodgers on an absolute bullet between several defenders for a 13-yard score. Rodgers still hasn't thrown an interception in a home game since December 2 of 2012. The Packers will head to Seattle for the NFC Championship Game next week.
Jan 11 - 4:11 PM

Aaron Rodgers (calf) is active and starting against the Cowboys in Sunday's Divisional Round game.

As expected. Rodgers was listed as probable and was never in danger of missing the game. But the Packers have protected themselves by making both Matt Flynn and Scott Tolzien active. Inactive for the Packers are WR Jeff Janis, RB DuJuan Harris, CB Demetri Goodson, LB Carl Bradford, C Garth Gerhart, TE Justin Perillo, and DT Bruce Gaston.
Jan 11 - 11:41 AM

Coach Mike McCarthy insisted Friday that the Packers' offense will not change despite Aaron Rodgers' partially torn calf.

Rodgers was "limited" in Thursday's practice. The Packers took Friday off, and will resume practicing on Saturday ahead of Sunday's Divisional Round bout with Dallas. "We're not going to change anything," McCarthy stated. Rodgers' injury is to his left leg -- not his "plant" leg -- so he should be able to drive the ball normally. ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky still expects Rodgers to spend "most of, if not all" of Sunday's game in the shotgun.

Aaron Rodgers (calf) is probable for the Divisional Round against the Cowboys.

As expected. Despite the slight tear in Rodgers' calf, he's ready to roll against Dallas. He's the clear-cut overall QB1 for this week's playoff slate.
Jan 9 - 12:59 PM

Speaking after Thursday's practice, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers (calf) did "everything we asked him to do today."

"It’s always a better practice when he’s out there," McCarthy said. Rodgers was limited to team drills, but his status is not in doubt for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Cowboys. His mobility will be the issue, but it hampered him very little in Week 17 against the Lions.

Jan 8 - 4:08 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Aaron Rodgers is dealing with a "slight tear" in his calf in addition to a "significant" strain.

Rodgers is fully expected to start Sunday's game against the Cowboys, but sounds like he'll be doing so at significantly less than 100 percent. "The question is whether he’ll be 95 percent or 50 percent," were the words of a "doctor familiar with the injury." Rodgers is expected to participate in team drills on Thursday, but is getting in limited practice reps this week. The good news, of course, is that Rodgers played through the injury in Week 17, but his mobility sounds like it will be highly limited against Dallas. He's also at risk of re-injury.
