Rodgers said he hasn't needed treatment on his calf recently and isn't concerned about it going forward, ESPN.com reports.

Rodgers battled through a calf injury during the playoffs, but it was never expected to be an issue for the upcoming season. He'll enter training camp at full health, playing in an offense that brings back all of its key pieces. There are few quarterbacks, if any, with a comparable combination of skill and team context.

Rodgers (calf) has been named the AP 2014 NFL Most Valuable Player, NFL.com reports.

Rodgers will be awarded his second MVP award after a season where he racked up 4,381 passing yards and a spectacular 38:5 touchdown to interception ratio. Although he dealt with a calf injury that limited his mobility in the later parts of the season, the 31-year-old was still able to lead Green Bay to the NFC Championship game, where the Packers nearly knocked off the defending Super Bowl champions. One of his main weapons, receiver Randall Cobb, is set to become a free agent this offseason, but other than that, the majority of his weapons should remain in tact, setting Rodgers up for another big statistical season in 2015.

Rodgers estimates that his calf injury should heal in about six weeks, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Of course, Rodgers -- who was hobbled by the injury during the Packers' recent playoff charge -- indicated that he would have continued to play through the issue had the team advanced to the Super Bowl. As it is, he'll now have plenty of time to recover fully, well before the Packers take the field again. Meanwhile, with Rodgers sitting out the upcoming Pro Bowl, Cincinnati's Andy Dalton will participate in the contest in his place.

Rodgers completed 19-of-34 passes for 178 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's NFC Championship Game loss to Seattle.

Rodgers was not himself for much of the game, as he sailed a few throws in the first half and dealt with mobility issues stemming from his well-publicized calf injury. While he was able to move the Green Bay offense into field goal range late in the fourth quarter, he often settled for short throws and the Packers converted only three of 14 third downs. Heading into the offseason, it's unclear whether Rodgers' calf issue will require surgery, but he figures to return at 100 percent for the 2015 season.

Rodgers (calf) is listed as active for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks, the Packers' official site reports.

Rodgers will continue to tough it out through his calf issue on Sunday against a rugged Seattle defense that allowed a league-low 185.6 passing yards per game to go along with 17 passing TDs (only Buffalo allowed less) during the regular season.

Rodgers (calf) is probable for Sunday's game against Seattle, ESPN Wisconsin's Jason Wilde reports.

Rodgers' calf injury clearly limited him early on in Green Bay's divisional round victory over Dallas, but it seemed to loosen up as the game went on. He was able to practice all week leading up to this weekend, albeit in a limited capacity. Of equal or greater concern than the calf is the matchup at Seattle itself, as Rodgers was able to accumulate just 189 yards, one touchdown and one interception on 33 pass attempts when Green Bay lost at Seattle in Week 1 of the regular season.

Rodgers (calf) was listed as a limited practice participant once again on Thursday, the Packers' official site reports.

Rodgers remains on track to play Sunday against Seattle, with coach Mike McCarthy noting encouragingly on Thursday that his star QB "participated in the second part of practice, went through pass under pressure and went through two team periods."

Updating an earlier report, Rodgers (calf) was listed as a limited practice participant Wednesday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

Per the Packers' official site, Rodgers -- who continues to battle a calf injury -- feels "pretty similar" to how he felt at this time last week. In any case, it would take an unexpected setback in the coming days in order for Rodgers to not start Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Seahawks.
