Aaron Rodgers calls his injury a ‘sprained knee’

Aaron Rodgers calls his injury a ‘sprained knee’

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is preparing to face Aaron Rodgers. "So, we'll see what tomorrow brings".

The Green Bay Packers were without receiver Davante Adams at Wednesday's practice due to a shoulder injury.

It's why the Packers aren't taking any chances on his knee, which Rodgers says is "sprained".

There hasn't been any evident discussion on Rodgers wearing a brace, but he said that there are certainly options available and that they'll make a decision on that later in the week.

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. After all, Rodgers returned from injury on Sunday after being taken to the locker room on the front seat of a cart.

Rodgers galvanized the Packers in their win Sunday after returning from his injury, and finished the game 20-30 for 286 yards and three touchdowns to zero interceptions.

The Packers were 17-0 down at half time but Rodgers was the catalyst behind a remarkable final quarter.

This would be best for everyone. 'There is nothing special there, nothing criminal, I assure you. "We'll see in the near future". Skripal poisoning suspects Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov are civilians, not criminals, says Putin.

"He'll be in the rehab group today", McCarthy added. "Anytime a player comes off a game where he's injured, there's the hope of playing". "We'll give him the whole week to get ready. We'll take it day by day and learn as we go".

Rodgers said he is feeling "a little better every day", but is "pretty sore".

Instead, he did rehab work on the side and extensive exercises with the medical staff inside the stadium.

But Rodgers insists he's ready to play despite the injury scare. He tore the ACL in his knee in high school, and played with the injury for four years before having surgery while in college at California.

"All I'm going to say on that is, he's on the right track", inside linebackers coach Glenn Pires said.

He described how he was cleared to play by the team doctor at halftime against the Bears so long as he could "deal with the pain".

There's reason for optimism for Rodgers' status entering week two, and even more so considering he has yet to offer up any advice for his backup, DeShone Kizer.
