Aaron Rodgers Returns from Calf Injury in Second Half

Aaron Rodgers is back.

He suffered a strained calf late in the second quarter of the Packers' week 17 game against the Detroit Lions, but after two offensive series he has his helmet back on and is returning to the game. On the two series he missed, the Packers ran out the clock on the first half and went three-and-out, both with Matt Flynn in the game at quarterback.

At the time of his return, the Packers and Lions are tied at 14. Rodgers' stat line from the first half is 6-for-9 passing for 97 yards and one touchdown, plus one run for 13 yards. Flynn completed his only pass for six yards to Eddie Lacy.
