Aaron Rodgers says his injured left calf is feeling better after he had treatment during Green Bay's bye week.

The Packers quarterback said Tuesday on his weekly radio show on ESPN 540 in Milwaukee that re-injuring the calf in Sunday's divisional round playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys was not a concern.

Rodgers says that "if it happens, it happens. At that point it's out of my control."

The quarterback first hurt the calf three weeks ago in Tampa Bay. He left the regular-season finale against Detroit in the second quarter because of the injury before returning in the third to help the Packers win 30-20.

Green Bay was off Tuesday. Rodgers will be reevaluated Wednesday to determine the practice plan for the rest of the week.

•The Packers say they will make 300 standing-room-only tickets available for Sunday's game against Dallas at Lambeau Field. Packers spokesman Aaron Popkey says details on the tickets will be released later this week.

AP petition to be heard

The NFL Players Association's petition to have Vikings running back Adrian Peterson's suspension overturned will be heard in federal court next month.

The office of U.S. District Judge David Doty posted a notice that a hearing on the case will be heard Feb. 6 at 2 p.m. in Doty's courtroom in Minneapolis.

The NFL suspended Peterson without pay for the last six games of the 2014 season through at least April 15 for the child-abuse case he was involved in. Peterson's appeal was denied by a league-appointed arbitrator. Immediately after the arbitration decision was announced, the NFLPA and Peterson filed their lawsuit Dec. 15 asking the court to dismiss the ruling.


•Steelers coach Mike Tomlin was irritated by accusations the team did not follow proper protocol when it came to the injury evaluations of quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and tight end Heath Miller in Saturday's AFC wild-card game against the Ravens. "I assure you the proper protocol was followed," Tomlin said. "… I take offense to the assumption that we would put those guys in harm's way."

•The Seahawks will be without defensive tackle Jordan Hill for the postseason after he was placed on injured reserve because of a severe calf injury.

•Raiders interim coach Tony Sparano will be interviewed Wednesday to retain that position.

Mike Tannenbaum, the former New York Jets general manager who served as a consultant to Dolphins owner Stephen Ross last season, will soon take over the team's football operations, the Miami Herald confirmed.
