141223-news-now-mccarthy-300GREEN BAY — Quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ calf is still a question mark, but the Packers had their entire 53-man active roster in uniform and practicing to some extent on Tuesday, a light workout in preparation for Sunday’s game.

How much the Packers’ health this late in the season can be attributed to Mike McCarthy’s change in the practice schedule — moving Friday’s regular practice to Saturday during a normal week — is debatable, but the alteration appeared to have an impact in Year 1.

“I think anytime your team is healthy, it gives you the best chance to be successful,” McCarthy said, before cracking a joke. “I’m  hoping to get the practice schedule coach of the year award, the way we’ve repped our team.

“This definitely beats the alternative. I think we’ve made some changes and the players have done a great job with it.”

As for Rodgers, he threw some passes during the portion of practice open to reporters.

“Aaron looked good. He’s getting better,” McCarthy said. “So far, so good. We’ll see how tomorrow is.”
