Aaron Rodgers injury update: Fantasy status never in doubt, will play vs. Cardinals

Andy Lyons

As expected, Aaron Rodgers will play Sunday when the Packers host the Cardinals despite showing up on the injury report with a calf injury. We break down the fantasy implications.

Aaron Rodgers will play Sunday when the Green Bay Packers host the Arizona Cardinals. Rodgers was listed on the Packers' injury report with a calf injury, but he was able to fully participate in practice throughout the week. He is not expected to be limited at all against the Cardinals.

Rodgers threw for just 182 yards against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, but did manage two touchdown passes. He has 18 touchdown passes over his last five games. Rodgers has thrown for over 300 yards four times this season.

Fantasy Impact: Rodgers had a relatively sleepy game last week, but he has been an otherwise stellar fantasy option this season. Alex Smith went 19 for 20 passing against the Cardinals last week on Monday Night Football, so fantasy owners should feel good about keeping Rodgers in their fantasy lineups. Not that they were questioning his status, anyway.
