We’d be real surprised if Aaron Rodgers isn’t on the field when the Green Bay Packers face the Minnesota Vikings. That being said, Rodgers wasn’t on the practice field on Wednesday.
Rodgers stayed at Lambeau Field during practice and worked with trainers. He has termed his injury a sprained knee. He went down with it during the second quarter of the win over the Chicago Bears, but returned in the second half.
#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers described his injury as a “sprained knee.” He stayed inside to work with trainers while the rest of the team practiced. He echoed McCarthy by saying it’s one day at a time. However, the idea of not playing this weekend hasn’t crossed his mind.

Rodgers said he planned on playing this week after the win over the Bears. It appears that attitude hasn’t changed. However, the Packers obviously don’t want to tip their hand to the Vikings.
You can bet the Vikings are expecting Rodgers.

Even if he doesn’t practice this week, Rodgers could still play. He said his knee is still sore, but that it’s improving every day.
