Packers-Lions: Wednesday Injury Report

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited participation at Wednesday’s practice.

“He did all the pre-practice work, no-huddle and then we had a segment there in practice where he was able to get some rehab done, and then he was back outside for the team stuff,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “He basically got done what he needed to get done today and he's getting better.”

The only player who did not practice was cornerback Davon House, who sustained a fractured scapula against Atlanta on Dec. 8. Even House, though, did some work in the Don Hutson Center.

For Detroit, receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive tackle Nick Fairley did not practice. Fairley, who with Ndamukong Suh form perhaps the best tackle tandem in the NFL, has missed the last seven games with a knee sprain. He forced the Eddie Lacy fumble that was returned for a touchdown early in the Week 3 game at Ford Field. Johnson has been dogged for most of the season with an ankle injury and aggravated it against Chicago last week.
