Packers' Aaron Rodgers not worried about calf injury

Aaron Rodgers might take a few days off of practice to rest his injured calf, but he won't be missing the Green Bay Packers' rivalry game versus the Chicago Bears.

"It'll be about pain management on Sunday, but the good thing is I'll be out there," Rodgers said, via ESPN's Rob Demovsky. "I'll be out there and ready."

Rodgers rehabbed Wednesday, which marked the first time all season he's been completely held out of practice. The Packers' QB1 is also expected to miss Thursday's on-field prep.

"I've dealt with a lot of injuries over the years, and you just learn about pain management and how to keep yourself in the best shape to play on Sunday, and then playing with pain," Rodgers said. "Obviously, I hurt it on the third play of the game and had to gut it out through some very difficult pain speaking to me at times and obviously slowing me down with some of the stuff I'm good at moving in the pocket or outside the pocket."

Rodgers admitted his mobility might be slightly compromised due to the calf strain, but it's not nearly enough to keep him out of the rivalry game as the Packers attempt to streak their way into the playoffs.
