Aaron Rodgers held out of practice for Packers

GREEN BAY (AP) -

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was held out of practice as the Green Bay Packers returned to work Friday.

Rodgers, selected to All-Pro team on Friday, is recovering from a calf injury.

The Packers practiced after coach Mike McCarthy gave the players most of the week off with having a bye in the first round of the playoffs.

Rodgers injured his left calf late in the first half of Green Bay's final regular-season game last Sunday, then returned to the game midway through the third quarter to lead the Packers to a 30-20 win over the Detroit Lions.

The victory earned Green Bay a fourth straight NFC North title and the No. 2 playoff seed in the NFC.

Rodgers, who spoke to reporters Friday, says the injured calf is slowly progressing.
