Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is probable for Sunday’s NFC North-deciding showdown against Detroit.

Rodgers was limited participation at Wednesday’s practice and would have been limited participation had the team practiced on either Thursday or Friday. He’ll get his final on-the-field work on Saturday.

“I don’t have any concerns today, just based off of the conversation with Aaron and how he’s feeling,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “Really, tomorrow will be a big indicator, just to watch him move around and do the different things. And then we’ll communicate during the game. But I don’t have a very high concern right now.”

Cornerback Davon House will miss a third consecutive game with a shoulder injury. The other players on the injury report – guards T.J. Lang and Josh Sitton and linebackers Clay Matthews and Mike Neal – are probable.

“I hope so,” McCarthy said when asked if House might be available for the playoffs. “I know he feels a lot better. His workouts have revved up. He’s making progress. But I’m hopeful he’ll be ready for next week or, hopefully, the following week.”

For Detroit, defensive tackle Nick Fairley will miss an eighth consecutive game, though his absence has hardly bothered the league's No. 1-ranked defense. Receiver Calvin Johnson and running back Joique Bell are probable.
