The Green Bay Packers activated QB Aaron Rodgers from reserve/injured; designated for return and released QB Joe Callahan. The transactions were announced Saturday by Ted Thompson, Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations.
Rodgers, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound, 13th-year player out of the University of California-Berkeley, was placed on injured reserve on Oct. 20. He started the first six games this season, completing 128 of 193 passes (66.3 pct.) for 1,385 yards, 13 touchdowns, three interceptions and a passer rating of 103.2. Rodgers ranks No. 1 in NFL history (min. 1,500 attempts) in career passer rating (104.1), interception percentage (1.5) and touchdown/interception ratio (4.13, 310/75). He has been named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player by The Associated Press twice in his career (2011, 2014), one of only eight players in league history to win the award multiple times.
