RB Aaron Jones could return after missing time with hamstring injury.
"Anytime you take away from one aspect and have to emphasize another, I thought the mental preparation so far has been good", he said. I still think that Peterson will be able to get outside some and he should have a better day than the 11 carries for 20 yards he had against the Colts.
- Adrian Peterson ran for 120 yards and a pair of 2-yard scores, Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes - all in the first half Sunday - and the Washington Redskins held on for a 31-17 victory over a gimpy Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, who again had complaints about a roughing-the-passer penalty on Clay Matthews. "It's interesting they released it as of [Monday] trying to get ahead of this whole situation". However, by playing on it, it now appears there's a chance the injury could get worse. "That's the only way you beat the greatest - by moving him off the spot and switching up the looks".
"Yeah, obviously that's a concern", Rodgers said Wednesday, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
"That just depends on how my knee's feeling", Rodgers told the team's website. "Take it week by week". After this 1-0-1 divisional start, Rodgers will try to make it a new season as he begins his non-division play.
Player Ratings: Liverpool vs Southampton - September 22nd, 2018
Alisson could have easily took a nap in the first half, and Liverpool still would have bagged a clean sheet against the Saints. But now the next one is coming on Wednesday and then coming again on Saturday and then again on the Wednesday.
We'll see how long he and the Packers can keep going like that. Thompson is going to be a nightmare and might force Green Bay to use more defensive backs when he's on the field but him catching a bunch of passes isn't the end of the world.
"G-Mo, I've always had a lot of confidence in him", Rodgers said. Almost half of his yardage (122 on six catches) came in one game against the Bengals, when his 72-yard catch in overtime set up the game-winning field goal.
Green Bay Packers kicker Mason Crosby (2) misses a field goal attempt late in the fourth quarter during the game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field. "I was giving all I had each time I played those guys".
Jones will play in his first game of the season in Week 3 against the Redskins. Jones gives the Packers another option in the backfield with his slashing ability.
Washington is number 1 in the league in pass defense, as they have allowed just 161 yards per game.
Coach Mike McCarthy has said that Jamaal Williams and Ty Montgomery will remain atop the depth chart.
