Aaron Rodgers is taking things “one day at a time”

Getty Images

Four days from the second Sunday of the season, and the first 2018 showdown between the Vikings and Packers, it’s still not clear whether Aaron Rodgers will play for Green Bay. And that’s the way the Packers surely want it.

“We’re taking it one day at a time,” Rodgers said Tuesday on The Dan Le Batard Show when “A” topic came up after roughly 15 minutes of meandering on subjects like the Dalai Lama and sharks. “One day at a time.”

Wednesday becomes the first of three days on which official information will be available about Rodgers’ availability for Sunday. For the first two days, the team will disclose whether and to what extent Rodgers practices. On the third day, the Packers will apply a label to his availability for Sunday: Questionable, doubtful, or out.

The Vikings undoubtedly aren’t guessing that they’ll see DeShone Kizer on Sunday, and they undoubtedly aren’t sweating the possibility of seeing Kizer again. (They played Kizer last year in London, and it went well. Then again, it went well for everyone who played Kizer last year.)

Rodgers has insisted that he’ll play, barring some sort of catastrophic injury in his knee. Of course, it’s possible that the catastrophic injury already has happened, and that he’ll play as long as he can on one leg — something he quite possibly wouldn’t have done if the Packers hadn’t given him long-term financial security less than two weeks before the start of the regular season.

Now that would have been a good topic for an interview of Aaron Rodgers.

  1. Check my posts – as I predicted: that even if Rodgers was back to his old self, Packers’ leaky D meant he’ll spend the season chasing the game, trying too hard and end up getting badly injured all over again. Almost happened the first half of the very first game – and indeed may have.

  2. NFC North is the best division in the NFL
    And all games in division are wars
    All must be healthy or crap games

  3. Sunday night:

    After the stunning comeback, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told NBC’s Michele Tafoya, “I’m playing next week.”

    Yesteday:

    “We’re taking it one day at a time,” Rodgers said Tuesday on The Dan Le Batard Show…

    Same person making both comments. What changed?

    Maybe Rodgers doesn’t run the Packers???

  4. If his knee is banged up the smart thing for the Packers to do is rest him this week against the monstrous front four of the Vikings. He will run the risk of making the injury worse. If he sits this week he can heal up and come back against the Lions next week where they will still be 2-1 after the Lions game and Rodgers will be on track to be 100%. But this is the Packers and they will definitely play Rodgers in this game.

  5. Packers would be remiss if they played him Sunday. He is key to the car, Kizer can’t even start it. Don’t risk a worse injury and lose the season, nobody wants to hear Packer fans say, “you won the division because Rogers missed the season”, again.

  6. I hope he plays because it should be a great game with him playing as opposed to a horrible one without him.

  7. First, I am sure he will play Sunday. He will want a crack at the Vikings after last year and the division games count for a lot. I am not sure how hurt he really is, but I am expecting him to play. Personally if I were the Packers, I would not play him. It is a long season and missing one game is a lot better than weeks of play in pain and lacking mobility, not to mention the potential for last injury issues. So as much as I like to see these games, and know how important he is to the Packers, I don’t think he should play, but I expect he will.

  8. Why has no one investigated what the actual “injury” is journalists? Is Aaron Rodgers still a “hero” if there was no actual injury? I’m not saying he faked anything, i’m saying that there’s nothing wrong other than Rodgers is fragile and has ZERO tolerance for pain and any other QB who had someone fall on their leg in a normal fashion, would’ve missed one series at the most and continued playing.

  9. Aaron obviously wants to play, you heard that Sunday.

    When a player is injured it is up to the team doctor whether he is cleared to play or not. Not the player. If he is cleared then he is playing.

    If this injury was very serious you would have heard that he is out for the season on Monday.

    All I know is that even on one leg Aaron Rodgers is 1000% better than Kirk Cousins.

  11. He’s as great a QB as he is a Diva. You can’t separate one from the other and I can’t wait to see him try to play 16 games this year

  12. The Packers “leaky” defense surrendered exactly the same points as the Vikings leaky defense. The other seven points were given up by the backup QB on a pick six, doofus.

    Well, Rodgers didn’t get his MRI until Monday. When Mike had his Monday presser, he didn’t have the results yet. I’m sure he’ll have more information today, but even if he did, he rarely releases that information, because he doesn’t have to. Naturally, the Vikings are planning to play against Rodgers, but there’s no strategical advantage for the Packers to just come out and disclose everything. The Vikings and all 30 other teams do the same thing.

    Best quarterback in the game

    ___________________

    Maybe, maybe not, but this is a team game. Rodgers doesn’t play on the best team in the league, much less the best team in this game.

  16. Oh, the drama!! The anticipation as to whether Rodgers will play or not will be the leading story all week long after he lead the greatest comeback in the history of the NFL last Sunday night! He’s the greatest ever!! What a performance for the ages!! The only thing that could top that is if he limps out on the field Sunday and vanquishes the team that stole his Super Bowl ring by breaking his collarbone last year. Whether he plays or not, it will be a tear-jerker, designed to pump up ratings and web-site clicks as the suspense lingers all week long.

    Give it a break…..please.

    Yeah, Zim took over a team that was 5 – 10 – 1 the year before.

    He’s won 4 of the last 5 though, after building his defense.

    ——————————————————————————————
    This is a big game for both these teams, but I agree with Ragnarthegreat. As much as I want the Pack to win this weekend it isn’t worth the long term impact of AR getting hurt even worse. It is only week two, so if he is hurt sit him for a week to get better. He can always try to get the Vikes in the next match.

    Go Pack

  19. This is going to a game of flags. The Vikes defense will get flagged for looking at Rodgers wrong, so why not play him. I’m just happy I don’t have to listen to Michaels and Collingsworth call the game. Sunday night was brutal!

  20. If it’s a meniscus tear, it’s not getting better till surgery. Ligament strain, he needs rest. This would be the week to do it, in spite of the injury.

  21. Yes, for most teams, not disclosing the nature of an injury to their QB may have a slight competitive advantage. For the Packers, it doesn’t really matter. Vikings really don’t need to spend any time preparing for Kizer, Huntley 2.0! But it’s entertaining to watch McCarthy try to act like a real head coach.

    Are there that many idiots in this world, let me get this, you predicted Rodgers would renter the game behind by 20 points and stick it to the Bears. You are amazing, you should apply for a job as a seer of the future. Get over the loss, you have no chance. Your only claim is that Kiser was a really bad QB. Without him everyone is not talking about Mack. Eliminate, fumble and interception and he was very contained. As many people from Raider Nation stated after game. Welcome to the real world of Mack, no where to be seen in the second half. Your team spent millions on a first half wonder, if the back up QB is playing.

    Typical packer fan.
    You just want the NFL to hand you the trophy like 100 years ago.
    But hey, you should be happy. You already won the Super Bowl for 2018-19. Don’t worry about playing the games.

  24. Google “meniscus”. If the case, inevitably, surgery, likely minor and with an athlete like Rodgers is will be “3-6″weeks and inevitably he plays in 3 weeks. Look at schedule, they can beat Bills and Lions in weeks 4 and 5, try to deal with SF in week 6, get bye in week 7. So if he can play in weeks 2 and 3 he can have potential surgery in two Mondays and get all needed rehab to prepare him for week 8 game. This situation is manageable without abandoning Pack season.

  25. It’s absolutely hilarious reading all of the “astute” football comments from an overconfident/ignorant fan base who’s team’s trophy case still subs as a broom closet.

  26. Rodgers will play on Sunday. It would have to take something that is serious that could de-rail the rest of the season if he doesn’t play. Either way as a Vikings fan, I want him to play. It’s just not as good of a game when we play the terrible Packers…who are terrible without Rodgers. And than when we win, we hear every excuse in the book. Even if we lose this week, I’d still rather face Green Bay with their best. Just raises the drama.

    It’s a good thing than the Vikings are a 1000% better team, outside of Rodgers. Team sport.

  29. They are crazy to play him if he is indeed hurt. Even if they play Kizer and lose, they are only one game back. Risking the season for one game would be foolish. So, I’m guessing he’ll play.

  30. He has agreed to play, as long as he can get assurances from the league that the O-line will be allowed to grab and hold like usual. (unlike in the first half of the Sunday night game)

    Packers Rubes, you were an interception away from being 0-1 if Fuller would have picked off A A Ron. What some of you Packers fans are not getting, is an injury like this stays with you all season and does not fully heal until the off season. Just because Rodgers is not out for the season doesn’t mean its a serious injury. This will require a regiment of treatment after EVERY game, ice , heat physical therapy. I don’t get why some Gumby fans thing its such a strategic move and an advantage to not know his condition. I’m sure the Vikings are preparing for Rodgers and if he is hobbled and dropping straight back, may the four four have mercy on his body.

    Rodgers makes his living off busted plays, 75 yard TD was a busted play. He shuffled to the outside he won’t be able to do that against the Vikings front four, which is a heck of a lot better then the Bears D. Vikings secondary and LB corp are better. Wait til the Hitman starts his blitzing terror. If Rodgers cannot scramble out of trouble the Vikings secondary can clamp down on the slant patterns, which is basically all Rodgers threw after the injury.

    A one leg Rodgers is better 1000% better than Cousins? Be careful what you wish for! Packers management needs to make the call and sit Rodgers if the injury puts himself in danger because he cannot protect himself. One game isn’t worth it and this is why The Packers needed to sign a veteran back up and they didn’t….AGAIN! Your whole team cannot be one man who basically makes up for the deficiencies in the other phases of the game, a one legged Rodgers will not be able to win a shoot out even at Lambeau. Just saying.

  32. This is exactly what that Diva wants, everyone talking about him. Nobody but packer fans care if he plays or not. He will be running, he will be getting hit, so we will see Sunday if the knee is good to go.

    Maybe Rodgers doesn’t run the Packers???

    +++++++

    Take out the maybe and the question marks and you would have typed something accurate. For once.

  34. Looking forward to contributing to the longest consecutive sell-out streak in the NFL this coming Sunday. If Rodgers starts they’ll need to limit visiting Viking fans to two beers, to keep unprovoked fight-picking to a minimum.

  35. @mrdarkness

    You keep saying the Packers should sit Rodgers for this game. I’m sure the Packers are waiting with bated breath for your next thought.

    As I have stated here several times now:

    Team Doctor Patrick McKenzie will either clear Aaron to play or he won’t. Perhaps he already has cleared him. No one knows outside of 1265 Lombardi Ave. The Packers have no obligation to keep the Vikings informed on anything. The injury report will be required by Friday, but they could just list him as questionable on that. Maybe a answer will be given later today during Aaron’s media time at his locker. Maybe not. I promise you this..We all will know if he is playing by 90 mins before kickoff Sunday. That’s the only deadline.

    Moving on…

    You Vikings fans have said all offseason how superior the Vikings roster is to Green Bay’s. We understand your opinion. We just think it is hogwash. Let’s play the game first before we crown best roster. I’m sure you don’t want more paper titles.

  36. As a Vikings fan I sure as heck hope he doesn’t play! He’s the best qb in football and without him they have NO chance of beating us and even the most hardcore Cheesehead knows that. I could care less if we beat GB without Rodgers the GB fans complaining about us beating them without Rodgers don’t bother me one bit. Just shows how piss poor their organization is run. They’ll never go 13-3 with a backup minus their #1 back..oh wait…back to piss poor organization…they don’t draft a #1 back they put a wide receiver back there.

  37. I’m no Packers fan but I’ll say this because I’m bored. That was one of the most exciting sports matches that I’ve ever seen in my life. Sure I’ve seen a lot of great matches but that was one of them. I hope he’s o.k. So I’m not bored.

  38. If he’s still a peg-leg come Sunday, I say sit out and heal up. As important as it is to play a defending division champion, the greater good is served by being available and effective the rest of he season. Vikings defense is stout (duh) and it’s foolish to risk further injury when you aren’t mobile.

  39. Packers should sit him for at least a week. What he did last weekend was amazing but there’s little to gain by pushing him out there against a good defense for a week 2 game.

    The very BEST case scenario if he plays is that the Packers beat Minnesota and yet are still in this same predicament this time next week… “should he start week 3 or not? He played well but still seems hurt. We’ll play it day to day.” It takes away practice reps from Kizer who needs to prepare and it prolongs the uncertainty and never lets Rodgers heal. Not worth it.

    Yeah. Those “astute” packer fan predictions of the Vikings going 0-2 this year sure were overconfident/ignorant. I agree with you !!

  41. Rodgers makes his living off busted plays, 75 yard TD was a busted play. He shuffled to the outside he won’t be able to do that against the Vikings front four, which is a heck of a lot better then the Bears D.
    =====

    Explain the other 2 td drives? Neither of which were ‘busted plays’.. Rodgers threw a perfect 40+ yard td pass, the other was a dink and dunk drive, with Davante Adams vintage Walsh old time religion.

    Nobody capitalizes on opponents mistakes better than Rodgers. To say this is the only way he gets points is pure ignorance.

    I agree that the Packers line is going to have their hands full. Linsley and the right side were an abomination Sunday. But Bak and Taylor held their own. And you’re sleeping on that Bears front-7. However bad the Packers were, the Bears are better than people give them credit for.

    The Vikes secondary is MUCH better than the Bears at this point. I think the Bears DBs gave the game away, as much as Rodgers took it from them.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out if they give Rodgers the green light. I’m not convinced they will at this point.

    Do you even read what I posted? I know how the injury report works – duh. My exact words
    “I don’t get why some Gumby fans thing its such a strategic move and an advantage to not know his condition.” I didn’t say the Packers needed to keep the Vikings informed. I stated that they are preparing for Rodgers, hence it nixes any advantage you think your team has. Its not like Kizer is a big threat we all saw that Monday night.

    Don’t try and school me son, you just make yourself look foolish. And yes you my gasp, but the Vikings roster is more well rounded and better than your beloved Packers – Come to grips with it. The Packers are no longer the dominant team they once were.

  45. If the Packers feel they need to sacrifice a QB the the football gods, your best bet is to go with Kizer. But that’s exactly why I’m hoping Aaron “Sitting Duck” Rodgers plays.

  46. And for the idiot who pointed a finger at a “GB LEAKY DEFENSE”, let me remind you 10 of Chicago’s points were the result of Kiser turnovers.
    13 points is not considered “LEAKY” in my book.

    /////////

    NO NO NO NO – I want a healthy Rodgers so there are no excuses!

  53. Green Bay went from a 1 point favorite at home to a 1 point underdog in their own house. Says a lot about what everyone outside of Green Bay thinks of that garbage team. If Rodgers is confirmed out the Packers will drop to double digit under dogs.

  54. “Don’t try to school me son. You just make yourself look foolish

    Let’s just move on..

    “I don’t get why Gumby’s think it is such a strategic move and a advantage not to know his condition”

    ==========

    That’s sports man. Coaches in all sports do it. It’s gamesmanship. Whether it’s a actual advantage or not it may bother the other team or fanbase in this case, and that is a psychological win.

  55. I’m a Vikes fan, but I give credit where credit is due. Aaron Rodgers is a phenomenal QB, the rest of the team not so much. AGAIN, even after that collarbone injury, Rodgers finds himself a one-man show w little support. Losing your QB doesn’t have to be catastrophic (see Foles & Keenum) if an org drafts well, develops a really good team, and coaches well. If Rodgers doesn’t play, you don’t win except MayB Buffalo.

    So I think he should play unless it’s really serious like a torn meniscus or ligament tear. Or MAYBE it’s not as serious as he & Fat Mike make it appear and this is just a ploy to get ref sympathy against one of the best D’s in the NFL OR gives him an excuse if he fails against that D, so he saves face. One thing we all shoulda learned from the 1st half of the Bears game, A-Rod doesn’t do well against good defenses–he never has. The reason the Pack won by a single point was that the Bears D took their foot off the gas and barely pressured the guy. I tell you, he sees ghosts w a lot of pressure. The Vikings WILL sack & pressure. This has to be an uncomfortable situation for the Diva who was so lauded this week, and rightly so.

    What you don’t seam to understand is the Vikings are preparing for Rodgers regardless of what’s coming out of the Packers camp. Nobody needs to adjust to Kizer because he’s terrible. If the Packers want to trot out Erin with a flat tire you’ll see the Vikings send everyone up the middle including the new punter who’s name I don’t even know. Either way it won’t be pretty. Good luck.

  57. Let me get this straight:

    Vikings idiots (that’s what we call their fans) think that having the 6th best total defense in yards and allowing the same amount of points as the Vikings did week one makes their defense garbage?

    They also think that because of two turnovers by the backup QB that the entire offense is garbage without Rodgers?

    Do you wonder why everyone calls you idiots?

    You had all you could handle with a QB in his 8th start and a bunch of has-beens.

    Packers > Vikings. It’s not close.

  58. Why don’t the fans of both teams just shut up and comment about how good or bad they were after the game?

    I couldn’t scroll through the comments fast enough much less read their drivel.

    YOU get this straight cheese grater, all teams’s have idiots which you have so succinctly proved. And the Vikings D is NOT garbage. In fact I bet you wish your defensive disastrous team had such a defense as the Vikings. That last comment is jealousy and nothin else. All you Cheeseheads are seeing is that the NFC North is getting tougher and no longer a cakewalk it was for the Pack 3y ago, and you’re all panicking–you have NOTHING if you don’t have a winning Packers team. And don’t say I’m lying. I must know @ least a hundred Packer fans and they ARE worried about the Vikings.

    There’s nothing at the end of these pages but comments, so there was no reason to scroll past the article.

    Just trying to help the newbies.

  61. Why do packers fans always bring up superbowl wins after a vikings fans clowned their trash team? How many rings does Rodgers have? Every year is either a choke job in the playoffs or Rodgers is injured in the first half of the season and done for the year. When all you can do to get back at vikings fans for embarrassing your pathetic team and injury prone soft qb is bring up ancient history, you know you’ve lost the debate and you’re butthurt. Only a childish bandwagon fan brings up old superbowls abd ancient history because that’s all they have, and a choker of a qb who gets hurt every year. My team has five superbowl rings but I never bring that up to get back at seahawks fans. It’s a childish immature way to get back at someone, and only shows that you’re butthurt and have nothing else to say because your team stinks. Nobody cares about your ancient history. Try staying in the present when going back and forth with a rival fan. The vikings are the superior team over the packets. Everyone knows that. I still get a good laugh at Rodgers choke jobs in the playoffs especially the last game against the seahawks. The great erin Rodgers Lol.🍔 . Overrated bum.

    Your post is hilarious. You use this year’s stats (for ONE game) when you want to make a point about your Packers, yet you use last year’s stats for ONE game (NFC Championship game) to make your point about the current Vikings. Yes, your current defense is terrific, shutting down the always dangerous Chicago Bears high-octane offense. And if Fuller doesn’t drop that easy INT, it’s an entirely different conversation. Whether or not Rodgers plays, if the Vikings beat the Packers this Sunday, I guarantee your first excuse will be “yeah, but if Rodgers would have been healthy…”.

    Oh crap. He must have bought the Cheeser-goggles this offseason and couldn’t get his money back so he’s wearing’ ’em anyway.

  64. I expect Rodgers won’t play, but as long as the Packers don’t say it the Vikings will have to prepare for him. McCarthy probably thinks that would give him a shot to win with Kizer.
    If Rodgers can’t play, the correct thing to do is to forfeit the game and rest everybody, and say they were scared to play the Vikings. Of course, the Viking fans would believe it.
