Green Bay QB Rodgers working out with rehabbing players


Rodgers injured the knee during the second quarter of Green Bay's 24-23 win over the Bears in Week 1, a game where he engineered a 20-point comeback in the second half.

"Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Aaron Rodgers will work in the rehab group again today". Although the knee injury doesn't seem like it will keep out Rodgers for very long, if at all, he still has yet to practice this week. "So we're just taking it light a little bit just so we can build up and be ready for Sunday", Adams said.

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.

The Vikings are planning to face Rodgers, not backup DeShone Kizer, in what will be quarterback Kirk Cousins' first NFC North game since signing in Minnesota as a free agent in March. He echoed McCarthy by saying it's one day at a time.

"Yeah, well, you know he walks on water, so I'm sure he's going to play", Zimmer said Wednesday in a conference call.

Even if he doesn't practice this week, Rodgers could still play. "But we'll see how that goes", McCarthy said.

"We know he's playing", Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said. Based on his comments from Wednesday, the Vikings coach sounds pretty confident that Green Bay's star player will be on the field.
