The Two Plays That Sealed the Chicago Bears Collapse in Green Bay By Erik Lambert- Sep 9 2018 1444

Rodgers said, immediately following the game, that he was definitely going to play against Minnesota.

Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers reacts after throwing a touchdown pass against the Carolina Panthers in the first quarter during their game at Bank of America Stadium on December 17, 2017 in Charlotte, North Carolina.

McCarthy said Wednesday that Rodgers would be day-to-day, but insisted the quarterback working with rehabbing players was "not a setback".

"He's always responded. We'll see what tomorrow brings".

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 it's understandable why Zimmer and the Vikings think Rodgers will play. Coach McCarthy has said #12 will be given the entire week to rehab and prepare for the Vikings.

Now, perhaps that's in order to keep everyone from taking the Vikings if Rodgers doesn't play.




Rodgers said he was feeling progressively better over the last couple days, though still sore.

The latter makes more sense if we're being honest.

The Green Bay Packers pulled out an impressive 24-23 comeback win over the Chicago Bears in Week 1.

If Rodgers does play, it would be his first game against the Vikings since the two-time MVP broke his right collarbone following a hit from Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr on October 15.

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.

Rodgers' status will be one to monitor once we get closer to Sunday's game.
