Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

It's why the Packers aren't taking any chances on his knee, which Rodgers says is "sprained".

The Packers quarterback said he didn't take any meds on Sunday night and that the only reason he was able to finish the game with the Bears was through sheer adrenaline. The two-time MVP returned in the second half, though, and orchestrated a wild comeback that further highlighted his status as one of the NFL's elite.

Meanwhile, if there's a player not needing practice leading to a game, Rodgers would certainly qualify given his familiarity with the offensive scheme and the upcoming opponent.

Even if he doesn't practice this week, Rodgers could still play. Kirk took a few sacks, but did not turn the ball over on a day where his counterpart did so three times. He said his knee is still sore, but that it's improving every day. Will the Packers risk putting Rodgers out there for the whole game knowing he could get hurt?

"It's super painful, and you've just got to suck it up and play through it", Rodgers said at his locker. "He's always responded. He puts a lot of extra time in".

One person who's convinced Rodgers is going to play is Mike Zimmer.

Rehabbing on Wednesday was not a setback, McCarthy said.
