Calf injury doesn't keep Rodgers from practicing

A left calf injury did not prevent Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers from practicing Tuesday, and he had plenty of company on the field inside the Don Hutson Center.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stretches his calf during the second quarter of Sunday's game at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Fla.

As a whole, it was a clean bill of health for the Packers' 53-man roster. That doesn't mean certain players weren't limited -- there are always bumps, bruises and precautions this time of year -- but nobody was held out of practice as the team begins preparations for its NFC North title game showdown with the Detroit Lions on Sunday.

For a team almost annually hampered with late-season injuries, the overall health of Green Bay's roster was remarkable.

There was nothing different with Rodgers' routine in the early periods of Tuesday's practice. The quarterback tossed warmup passes and practiced snaps with center Corey Linsley.

Running back Eddie Lacy practiced after cramps prevented him from returning to Sunday's game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. So did the entire offensive line, including guards Josh Sitton (toe) and T.J. Lang (ankle).

Cornerback Davon House (shoulder) also returned to practice for the first time since the Packers' last home game against the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 8.
