“Aaron Rodgers participated in the second part of practice,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “Went through pass under pressure and went through two team periods. So, (he is) getting ready to play.”
Running back Eddie Lacy was added to the injury report with a sore knee. McCarthy, using what he called a “conservative” approach, sat Lacy down about midway through practice. He thought Lacy would be fine for Sunday.
The team does not practice on Friday. It will leave for Seattle on Friday afternoon and practice there on Saturday.
As for Rodgers, that he went through the pass-under-pressure drill could be considered a positive sign, since he probably had to move at least a little in the pocket. Any movement ability would be a huge asset against Seattle’s top-ranked pass defense, both to keep himself out of harm’s way and to buy extra time for his receivers to get open.
In the meantime, backup quarterback Matt Flynn is preparing as if he’s going to have to play to keep the Packers in the hunt for the Super Bowl.
“It’s no different,” he said of his preparation. “My attitude every week is it’s a distinct possibility. You never know if he’s going to step wrong or get hit hard or whatever it is. It’s not fair to me or anybody else on this team if I don’t believe every day at practice or every day at work that it’s a distinct possibility that I’ll be playing.”
The Seahawks are exceptionally healthy. Not only did all 53 players practice, but all of them were full participation.
