Aaron Rodgers: Green Bay Packers legend reveals worry following injury

Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

He said after the game that while he had to undergo more tests, he planned on playing against Minnesota.

He sacked Packers quarterback DeShone Kizer on his first play in the National Football League, and the spotlight at Lambeau Field didn't look to bright for him.

He led the Green Bay Packers on a sensational comeback, which was even better considering he looked seriously injured going into the half.

He said he feels "a little better every day".

"There was a lot of adrenaline", Rodgers told reporters, "and (it's) pretty sore the last three days".


If the soreness keeps Rodgers out of practice for the rest of the week, that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play against the Vikings. Typically, players need to practice throughout the week in order to be eligible to play on game day.

The general theme from both Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy as that they're taking the process of his rehabilitation one day at a time. "We'll give him the whole week to get ready".

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee) and safety Josh Jones (ankle) also missed the practice. "We'll take it day by day and learn as we go".

Rehabbing on Wednesday was not a setback, McCarthy said. "He's always responded. He puts a lot of extra time in".

"Obviously, I've dealt with foot injuries, calf injuries, hamstrings - lower extremities - and played with it, so hopefully I'll be able to be back out there Sunday", Rodgers said. "We'll see what tomorrow brings", McCarthy said during his Wednesday news conference.
