Packers’ Rodgers might not play? Vikings don’t buy it

Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers suffered a knee injury in week one and although he came back in the second half and led the Packers to a victory against the Chicago Bears he is still questionable for this game.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers sounded optimistic Wednesday about his chances of playing when the Packers host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

Vikings safety Harrison Smith, fresh off an NFC North Player of the Week award, knows just how hard it is going up against Rodgers.

"I mean every practice is important", receiver Davante Adams said.

Rodgers echoed McCarthy on taking it on a day by day basis and revealed he didn't take pain medications Sunday night. Typically, players need to practice throughout the week in order to be eligible to play on game day.

There's reason for optimism for Rodgers' status entering week two, and even more so considering he has yet to offer up any advice for his backup, DeShone Kizer.

Rodgers guaranteed he wouldn't miss any time, but the Packers are keen on being cautious with the injury. "We'll give him the whole week to get ready. We'll see what tomorrow brings", McCarthy said during his Wednesday news conference.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer was not shy about the fact his team will be preparing for the future Hall of Fame quarterback.

"Yeah. He walks on water so I'm sure he's gonna play", Zimmer said, per NFL Network.

There hasn't been any evident discussion on Rodgers wearing a brace, but he said that there are certainly options available and that they'll make a decision on that later in the week.
