Packers' Aaron Rodgers to miss practice, focus on rehab

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Aaron Rodgers will miss Green Bay Packers practice on Wednesday to focus on rehabbing his leg injuries, a plan that coach Mike McCarthy says will likely stay in place for the quarterback through practice Thursday.
But signs point to Rodgers still being ready to play Sunday in Chicago. McCarthy says that Rodgers told him not to hold anything back for the game plan against the Bears.
Rodgers hurt his left hamstring a few weeks ago against the Philadelphia Eagles. He hurt his right calf while throwing a 66-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams on the third play of Sunday's 38-10 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.
McCarthy says he's planning for the Bears game similarly to how he prepared for Seattle.
