Rodgers stayed at Lambeau Field during practice and worked with trainers.
Rodgers said, immediately following the game, that he was definitely going to play against Minnesota.
McCarthy said receiver Davante Adams (shoulder) and linebacker Oren Burks (shoulder) will be "limited" participants in Thursday's padded practice. He said it would be accurate to describe his injury as a sprained left knee. Let's not forget the team signed Rodgers to a $134 million contract extension just a couple of weeks ago, making him the highest paid player in National Football League history. He completed 20 of 30 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns against the Bears.
"You hate that you're dealing with something like this in the first week, but you feel similar to this Week 13, 14, 15, 16, 17", Rodgers said.
McCarthy confirmed Rodgers will continue to work in the rehab group on Thursday, adding the two-time MVP quarterback is "going to try to do more today than yesterday". "He'll be given the whole week to get ready". "Just taking it one day at a time". He said feel "a little better every day".
Rodgers said in his postgame interview Sunday night on NBC that he would play vs. the Vikings, against whom he broke his collarbone previous year. There were a couple throws in which Rodgers said he got a "jolt" of pain after putting weight on his left leg. The injury limited Rodgers to seven games a year ago. OR perhaps it means that Las Vegas knows more than we do.
