Aaron Rodgers Has Knee Sprain, Skips Practice

Aaron Rodgers Has Knee Sprain, Skips Practice

Rodgers is considered day-to-day and will work with the rehab group this time moving forward.

Rodgers suffered a knee injury in the first week of the National Football League season, and fans are concerned that the set-back will see him miss the match against rival team Minnesota. "So I'm sure he's going to play".

"All reps are valuable", said Head Coach Mike McCarthy during his Thursday morning news conference. If he can't go, the Packers would turn to backup DeShone Kizer, who accounted for two turnovers after coming in when Rodgers got hurt in the second quarter last week against the Bears.

"You hate that you're dealing with something like this in the first week, but you feel similar to this Week 13, 14, 15, 16, 17", Rodgers said.

After being carted to the locker room, Rodgers returned in the second half to rally the Packers from a 20-0 deficit to a 24-23 win, matching the largest comeback of Rodgers' NFL career. Let's not forget the team signed Rodgers to a $134 million contract extension just a couple of weeks ago, making him the highest paid player in National Football League history. He said after the game that while he had to undergo more tests, he planned on playing against Minnesota. "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 was feeling progressively better over the last couple days, though still sore.

McCarthy is expected to announce on Wednesday whether Rodgers will be able to play or not.

He said the pain and swelling increased after the game.

"We're taking things day by day". Adams has developed a strong connection with Rodgers that has helped become a key part of the offensive game plan as one of the primary targets.
