Dec 22, 2014 12:50 PM

Aaron Rodgers doesn't expect his calf injury to be an issue in Week 17.

The Green Bay Packers play the Detroit Lions with the NFC North title on the line.

"I'll be OK for next week," Rodgers said after Green Bay's 20-3 romp over the Buccaneers on Sunday, per ESPN Wisconsin. "(I) hurt my calf pretty good, but the training staff helped me kind of get through it. Just put some heat on and just tried to push through it."

Rodgers also battled through a "pretty bad" flu to complete 31-of-40 passes for 318 yards with one touchdown and no picks.
