The Green Bay Packers listed both their starting quarterback (Aaron Rodgers) and running back (Eddie Lacy) on the injury report as limited participants in Thursday’s practice. The team estimated that the two players would have been limited on Friday as well and gave both a probable chance to play on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in the NFC championship game. The Packers list four players on their injury report and the Seahawks list seven (two not injury related) on theirs.
Earl Thomas swapped jerseys with Chris Maragos following Sunday’s game.
Malcolm Smith always was ready to step in when the Seattle Seahawks needed him. Now he’s only the third linebacker in NFL history to earn Super Bowl MVP honors.
The nastiest defense in the NFL proved to be greater than the record-setting arm of Peyton Manning Sunday.
