Dallas DT Terrell McClain out vs Packers in divisional round
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers looked spry enough in pregame warmups Sunday for Green Bay’s divisional playoff game against Dallas.
Rodgers is battling a left calf injury, although Friday he was elevated to probable for the game. He didn’t look hampered at all during warmups, testing the leg as he threw to Jordy Nelson before shaking hands and chatting with game officials.
Rodgers was injured in the Packers’ 15th regular-season game against Tampa Bay and aggravated the calf in the season finale vs. Detroit, when Green Bay won the NFC North. The Packers had a bye last week.
The Packers kept three quarterbacks active. So running back DuJuan Harris is inactive, just as he was for the season finale against Detroit. Harris was the team’s main kickoff returner during the season.
Cowboys defensive tackle Terrell McClain is inactive Sunday. One of Dallas’ key rotational players on the line, McClain hurt his ankle in last week’s wild-card round victory over Detroit.
Also absent for the fourth straight game is right tackle Doug Free (left ankle, foot). The Cowboys activated Ken Bishop from the practice squad to the roster as a backup to Jermey Parnell at right tackle Sunday.
