Seattle wary of Rodgers threat

Rodgers has only taken part in limited practice as he rests a calf problem ahead of Sunday’s NFC championship clash at CenturyLink Field, live on Sports.

But the 31-year-old still managed to throw for 316 yards and three touchdowns in last weekend???s 26-21 win over Dallas.

Thomas, a free safety for Seattle, will be trying to stifle the Packers??? offence and believes Rodgers has proved he is fit enough to lead Green Bay to victory.

“I think he’s going to find a way to protect himself, but we???ve got to know that too,” he said. “I???m not buying into this leg issue. I???m not buying into it.

“I saw him scramble close to the goalline on the Cowboys, so he???s not fooling me with that.”

This opinion was echoed by strong safety Kam Chancellor, who raced to a 90-yard touchdown in last Saturday???s 31-17 win over the Carolina Panthers.

“That’s the mentality you’ve got to have,” said Chancellor. “I’m not really concerned with his hobbly or wobbly calf, whatever. I???m concerned about Aaron Rodgers. If he’s in that game, no matter how he’s feeling, he’s still Aaron Rodgers.

“He’s capable of making plays, capable of getting the ball downfield, getting it to his receivers and just running their offense.

“So you’ve got to respect a guy like that. No matter what’s wrong with him, you can’t doubt him or say that it’s going to be a little different because he’s hobbly and wobbly. You don’t want any surprises, so just go in with that mentality and you won’t be surprised.”
