Aaron Rodgers Injury: Packers QB Gives Update Before Week 2 Vs. Vikings

  • Packers QB Aaron Rodgers taking injury ‘one day at a time’

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee) and safety Josh Jones (ankle) also missed the practice.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Aaron Rodgers' status is day-to-day ahead of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field.

Adams told reporters in the locker room Wednesday he suffered the injury going to the ground at the end of his 51-yard catch against the Chicago Bears in the season opener.

"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said, via the team's website. The coach said the team will take it day-by-day with his MVP QB. "We'll give him the whole week to get ready".


Meanwhile, if there's a player not needing practice leading to a game, Rodgers would certainly qualify given his familiarity with the offensive scheme and the upcoming opponent. "So, we'll see what tomorrow brings".

Rodgers walked back out halftime, took over on the first series of the second half and threw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to rally the Packers from 20 points down to a 24-23 victory.

Rodgers guaranteed he wouldn't miss any time, but the Packers are keen on being cautious with the injury.

He sacked Packers quarterback DeShone Kizer on his first play in the National Football League, and the spotlight at Lambeau Field didn't look to bright for him.
