Packers' Rodgers listed as probable for Lions game

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Aaron Rodgers is listed as probable for the Packers' NFC North showdown with the Lions.

The winner Sunday clinches the division title.

Rodgers injured his left calf in the first quarter of Green Bay's lopsided win at Tampa Bay last Sunday but stayed in the game.

Green Bay didn't practice Friday after taking the previous day off for Christmas. But the team estimates Rodgers would have been a limited participant on the field Friday.

With a victory, the Packers would win their fourth straight division title and earn at least a No. 2 seed in the playoffs with a first-round bye and a home game in the divisional round. Green Bay also is looking to finish a perfect 8-0 at Lambeau Field for the first time since 2011.
