Guess who’s back? Drop the drums. Here it comes. Only got two minutes to bounce and every second counts…
QB1 is back. Aaron Rodgers. And if you missed that reference, 2pac.
Rodgers said he wanted to shed the knee brace after the Green Bay Packers’ bye week. It’s unclear if the Packers’ medical staff will allow him to do that.
What we do know is Rodgers will practice all week, barring some other incident. The Packers will practice on Tuesday because they are going to Los Angeles on Friday. That moves their practice schedule up a day. They usually begin practicing on Wednesday.
Rodgers has not been a part of any of those practices since injuring his knee in week 1. The past two weeks that the Packers have practiced, Rodgers has only taken part on Thursday and Saturday. The Packers don’t practice on Friday.
So this is a step up for a guy who said he took a step back after a hit during the Packers’ loss to the Lions.
Sitting around and resting during the bye week should do that for you. Rodgers perhaps got the rest he needed.
Hopefully, this knee injury won’t be a thing anymore. Rodgers has seemed more mobile in recent weeks. He obviously wants to be full go.
That’s not going to cure all of the Packers’ woes, but it could be a huge step in the right direction.
