Mike McCarthy says ‘positive’ outlook on Aaron Rodgers playing Sunday

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on track to play Sunday against the Bears after struggling with a calf injury.

“It’s been normal,” McCarthy said, via Packers News.

“except for practice. So we still have the same structure in meetings. It’s been more pre-planning for the game earlier than normal, just because of the fact that he’s not on the practice field. In the treatment, he’s able to watch more tape and more conversation going on there Thursday and Friday that you would normally have Friday and Saturday, as far as how you feel the game is going to go.”

“He feels good,” McCarthy said. “Everything’s been real positive from his outlook. So he’ll practice tomorrow, and hopefully he comes through here clean, and hopefully he’ll be available.”
