Tony Romo expects Aaron Rodgers to be fine without practice time

IRVING, Texas -- Not that Tony Romo wants want to give Aaron Rodgers any advice regarding how to prepare for a game such as Sunday's at Lambeau Field without taking every snap during the practice week, but the Dallas Cowboys' quarterback does not believe it will affect the Green Bay Packers' quarterback.

Rodgers did not practice on Wednesday because of a calf injury and Romo followed the same routine he has used since the second game of the season by not practicing.

Romo will return to practice on Thursday, but Rodgers' status is not quite as clear.

"Oh no, he'll be fine," Romo said when asked if Rodgers' absence will hurt him. "When you've played the game long enough it's not going to disrupt his timing. He'll be fine. I expect him to be at full (go)."

Defensive end Jeremy Mincey was officially listed as having missed practice because of a concussion. Linebacker Rolando McClain did not practice because of a sore knee as well as concussion. McClain and Mincey will have to pass through concussion protocols during the week in order to play Sunday.

Linebacker Anthony Hitchens (ankle), tackle Doug Free (ankle) and defensive tackle Terrell McClain (ankle) did not practice.

Tight end James Hanna was added to the injury report with a knee injury but was listed as a full participant, as were linebacker Bruce Carter (knee), defensive tackle Nick Hayden (shoulder), safety Jeff Heath (thumb), guard Zack Martin (ankle) and running back DeMarco Murray (hand).
