GREEN BAY, Wisconsin — Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Eddie Lacy were listed as probable on the injury report Friday for this weekend's NFC title game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Rodgers has been limited this week in practice with a lingering left calf injury.

"It's painful. There's stiffness involved. There's constant, around-the-clock treatment," Rodgers said Friday. "Hopefully, it feels pretty good on Sunday."

Lacy was added to the injury report on Thursday with a sore knee. Coach Mike McCarthy has said he limited Lacy in practice as a precaution.

McCarthy said Rodgers and Lacy looked good on Friday, when the Packers didn't practice.

"I'm not concerned. I'm chillin,'" Lacy said.

The Packers appear to be a loose team ahead of their first NFC championship game appearance since the 2010 season. They won 21-14 at Chicago then before going on to defeat Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl, 31-25.

While his mobility his limited, Rodgers has played well despite the injury. He was listed as probable last week before the playoff game against Dallas and went 24 of 35 for 316 yards with three touchdowns in a 26-21 win.

Rodgers said he thinks about getting another shot at a Super Bowl with McCarthy and general manager Ted Thompson.

"You'd like to win a couple more because that's when you really kind of cement your legacy and do something really special," Rodgers said. "The three of us working the majority of our careers together — it would be great to add a couple more trophies."

Green Bay planned to fly to Seattle later Friday, a day ahead of when the team would normally go for a Sunday road game. McCarthy said it was in part due to adjusting to travel and the time zone change.

The Packers resume practice on Saturday in Seattle.
