Eight months after being limited by a sore left calf, Aaron Rodgers is fully healed.
So opponents must again stay on their toes against a quarterback known for his ability to extend plays.
The NFL MVP had no issues in the offseason. He said he worked hard on his training regimen.
No reason to worry now.
“This was a significant calf injury, but we’re talking about eight months later,” Rodgers said after practice Thursday. “I have zero inhibitions out there, and I’m playing the way I want to play.”
Rodgers was terrific last season, throwing for 4,381 yards and 38 touchdowns to just five interceptions. His mobility was limited late in the season by a calf injury that forced the Packers to get away from part of their playbook.
The offense operated mostly out of a shotgun or pistol formations, where a quarterback is lined up at least a few yards behind center.
