Rodgers continues to nurse a knee injury he suffered during last Sunday's game against the Bears. He reached for the back of his left leg after a Bears lineman landed on him during a sack.
According to Demovsky's tweet on Wednesday afternoon, September 12, Rodgers did not take any pain medications on Sunday night "because he doesn't like them". Instead he worked with players rehabbing, which also included receiver Davante Adams. The coach said the team will take it day-by-day with his MVP QB.
Rehabbing on Wednesday was not a setback, McCarthy said.
It'll be interesting to see how the Vikings play Rodgers.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is preparing to face Aaron Rodgers.
Philippines: 10 million people in the path of Mangkhut
Mangkhut is expected to be as strong as Haiyan - a super typhoon that killed more than 6,200 people in the Philippines in 2013. Once the Typhoon enters the vicinity of Philippines on Wednesday afternoon, "Mangkhut" will be named as "Ompong" locally.
"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said, via the team's website. The 14-year veteran said he does not need to practice to play. "He'll be given the whole week to get ready. See how it feels tomorrow and see how it feels Friday, Saturday and hopefully ready to go Sunday".
Rodgers guaranteed he wouldn't miss any time, but the Packers are keen on being cautious with the injury.
Wearing a brace could be an option, depending on how the quarterback feels later in the week.
"It's super painful, and you've just got to suck it up and play through it", Rodgers said at his locker.
