Packers Calendar: Practice on Christmas Eve

Packers Calendar: Practice on Christmas Eve

We hope all our readers have a great Christmas Eve. Here's to hoping Santa Claus stuffs some playoff tickets in your stocking. We're pretty sure Dominic Raiola is getting a lump of coal.

The Green Bay Packers will take to the practice field on Wednesday before getting the day off for Christmas.

It will be business as usual as the Packers prepare to take on the Detroit Lions on Sunday, a game with plenty at stake, including a division championship and a bye in the playoffs.

If there's an early Christmas present the Packers are hoping to receive, it would be a return to full health for quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers was classified as limited at practice by those in attendance, and there's no guarantee he'll make enough progress to be a full participant on Wednesday.

"So far, so good," said head coach Mike McCarthy of Rodgers. "We'll see how (Wednesday) is. He's getting better each day. (Wednesday's) practice is more of an abbreviated Thursday type of practice for us on Wednesday, operating in shells. Our padded practice availability is over. I don't know exactly what he's going to do (Wednesday). We won't know that until (Wednesday) morning."

The Packers are in generally good health considering it's late in the season. All 53 players on the roster took part in practice on at least a limited basis on Tuesday.

The team will release their first injury report of the week on Wednesday, followed by a press conference by McCarthy, taking place at approximately 1:15 p.m. CT and streamed live on
