Aaron Rodgers plays Santa, gifts 55-inch televisions to offensive linemen, backup quarterbacks

GREEN BAY (AP) — Aaron Rodgers has been limited in practice with a sore left calf, though Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says his franchise quarterback is getting better.

Off the field, Rodgers was feeling especially charitable on Christmas Eve -- Wednesday, December 24th. He gave new 55-inch televisions to the Packers offensive linemen and backup quarterbacks.

The packages arrived Tuesday night, and the players apparently didn't know that reporters would be allowed in the locker room on Christmas Eve, after practice ended at an earlier hour for the holiday.

Guard Josh Sitton says the ever-private Rodgers likely didn't want people outside the team to know.

Regardless, it's a pick-me-up for the linemen right before they have to face the Detroit Lions' tough defensive front Sunday.
