Aaron Rodgers re-injures left calf

GREEN BAY, Wis. --Aaron Rodgers and his left calf injury did not make it through the first half of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback managed to throw a 4-yard touchdown pass after the injury happened, but then was carted to the locker room with 2:24 left in the second quarter.

The Packers said he was questionable to return.

Rodgers was rolling to his right when it became apparent he was hurt again. However, he still was able to throw a short pass to Randall Cobb for a touchdown before he went down. Rodgers needed help from the Packers' medical staff to make it to the sideline. While doing so, the crowd at Lambeau Field shouted "MVP, MVP."

There was concern about Rodgers' injury coming in after he was limited in practice all week. He played through it last Sunday in a 20-3 win at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Packers activated all three quarterbacks against the Lions for the first time all season because of concern over the calf.
