Rodgers to work in rehab group at practice


Aaron Rodgers called his injury a "sprained knee". "We'll take it day by day and learn as we go". "We'll give him the whole week to get ready".

Rodgers said immediately after Green Bay's unbelievable comeback that he'd play in Week 2 against Minnesota, and the 34-year-old didn't back down from that sentiment Wednesday. The 14-year veteran said he does not need to practice to play. Knowing coach Mike Zimmer, I'd expect plenty of pressure on Rodgers.

Rodgers himself seemed confident he would be able to beat the injury, and said it would take something a lot more serious to keep him off the field.

If the soreness keeps Rodgers out of practice for the rest of the week, that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play against the Vikings.

Rodgers avoided questions about his knee injury on Tuesday and the team has still not made a decision on whether he'll play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, despite Rodgers saying Sunday after the Bears game he would play.

After all, it was Vikings Pro Bowl linebacker Anthony Barr who broke Rodgers' collarbone last season.

"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said.

According to Rodgers, the knee has been slowly been getting better, but it still doesn't feel great. S Josh Jones (ankle) missed practice, while rookie LB Oren Burks (shoulder) was limited.
