Aaron Rodgers to work in rehab group Wednesday

Getty Images

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said on Tuesday that he will be taking it one day at a time this week when it comes to figuring out whether he will play against the Vikings after hurting his knee in last Sunday night’s victory over the Bears.

The first day will not feature a full slate of practice work. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said on Wednesday morning that Rodgers will spend the day’s practice session working with the group of players rehabbing injuries.

“It’s not a setback,” McCarthy said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “This is how it goes during the season. You have players in different categories.”

The Packers will practice again on Thursday and Friday before submitting their final injury report before the game against Minnesota. If Rodgers is listed as anything other than out for that game, it seems unlikely that the Vikings would expect anyone other than Rodgers in the lineup.

  1. He’ll play and he’ll win. The Packers in the 2nd half were outstanding. Their secondary is vastly improved. And their OL didn’t allow pressure in the 2nd half. Packers–31 Vikings–16.

    Book it.

    What?

  3. The Vikings have beaten us 4 of the last 5 times and Rodgers has played in 4 of those games. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really matter if Rodgers plays or not.

    The problem is that Rodgers is great. Maybe even the greatest of all time. But, Zimmer is even better.

  4. He doesn’t need his legs running around to play. His arms are enough. He’s one if not the most talented QB in the NFL in plain freakiness but they need to protect him from the Vikes’ defense which is in your face brutal. If they can’t shield him, then rest him. Better to lose a game than the whole season.

    Your prediction is about as believable as a weather forecaster in the Carolinas saying that Hurricane Florence will be no big deal. With two good legs, Rodgers can’t beat the Vikings by himself. With only one good leg, Zimmer will bring the heat and Aaron (even as great as he is) will have no chance.

  6. That he came out without a brace and the direction the knee bent I’m thinking it’s a low grade MCL sprain. Hurts but you can play through it. He’ll be rehabbing most of the season though.

  7. He needs to practice this week. The Vikings are one of the hardest teams to gameplan against, because even though Zimmer may come up with a specific plan, the players might just decide to do something completely different once the game starts.

    I have no doubt that he will play and he will play well, but the whole team is going to have to play better than they did Sunday to win. This ain’t the Bears you’re playing this week, and it will take more than a half of good football if you’re planning on winning by 15 points.

    Before it even starts…

    The injury report rules are the same for all teams. The Packers owe nobody an extra or specialized report.

    Absolutely true.
    We can’t believe anything the packers say about this.

    And just how does this affect what will happen Sunday? Its the sign of fear as always with Packer fans when they pull out the “rings” or “trophies” you know you have got them triggered and you have won the argument. They live in the past – let em Vikes own the future.

  11. Good grief. Everyone knows he’s going to play. Do you think Zimmer is thinking he’s gonna get a sitting duck? Me thinks not.
    In the incredible event he doesn’t play? Vikes win in a blowout. Otherwise this should be a good game. Looking forward.

  12. Does it matter if he is listed as questionable? No matter what the Vikes are going to blitz like crazy. The game plan should be the same. Blitz the hobbled qb or the easily frazzled QB.

    Fear the mighty Vikings, winners of 5 of the past 6 against the lowly Packers….
    ================================================================================

    and winners of zero when it really matters…

  14. Oddly enough the injury helped the offense in the second half. Forced Rodgers to get the ball out quick instead of the “secondary plays” that McChumlee loves. Not a great idea to have your QB avoid pressure for 5 seconds so WR’s can get open. Much rather see schemes get players open like every other NFL team.

    =====

    He does need his legs. Don’t fool yourself.

    6.9 sack %, which is currently 23rd among active starters. Just for the sake of comparison; Brees 3.9%, Brady 4.88%

    .. 4 guys below Rodgers aren’t even starters at this point, so in truth, only 3 QBs take more sacks; Cam Newton (6.99) Alex Smith (7.77) and Russell Wilson (8.1)

    Granted, he holds the ball in an attempt to make plays. And I’ve only seen a few guys who improvise the way Rodgers has. But the amount of hits he takes in concerning.

    One of the things they do best is move the pocket. That luxury is gone with Rodgers hobbled.

    This if far from an ideal situation.

  17. Hey Vikings fans — with all your mouthing off about Rodgers and your “great” defense, which one of your defenses will show up this weekend? If it’s the defense which Foles destroyed in the playoffs, Rodgers will have a great game.

    The truth hurts, doesn’t it? I don’t blame you for wanting to forget the Vikings past. I would too if I were a Vikings fan.

  19. Vikes fan here! Aaron Rodgers is a stud, but….he does get special care from the refs and now had a rule put in place to protect the position that’s been happening for years. That said, his injury still hasn’t been diagnosed, and to say it was heroic because he went off in a cart, c’mon now. Packers brass would be best to sit him out for this one but by all means go head and start him if he has a chip on his shoulder. The Vikings will be a different test than the Bears in all facets of the game.
    Also, after seeing Clay Mathews hit on Trubisky at the end of the game, I don’t think any Packer fan or player has any right to call out Anthony Barr. It was far past the whistle and it almost cost you the game. The Packers are a good team with Rodgers…without you’re in the top 5 from the bottom with no identity. Hope Rodgers plays so Packer fans can start to realize that they are the second best team in the division and it will stay that way for the next few years.

    LOL you don’t remember the 70s do you? I do! Pretty soon the past is all you Packer fans will have to talk about the decade of mediocrity is upon you as your team slowly declines over the next 2-3 years. It will be the 70s all over again. Fresh start with Bart right?

    *****
    Yes, because even great teams never have a bad game, right? I seem to remember a 15-1 Packer team that got destroyed at home by a 9-7 Giants team in the first round of the playoffs a few years ago.

  25. He’ll play. They’ll give him enough painkillers so he doesn’t feel a thing, then the announcers can talk about what a hero he is for playing through it.

  26. Blitzing Rodgers is risky, hobbled or not. With the reports of this injury, speculation at this point, he’ll be ok. Once you’re out there on painkillers… it doesn’t really bother that much. Adrenaline kicks in and during a play… not a big deal. You’ll lose some speed and maybe cutting ability but he’s not a WR or RB. QB is the one position you will lose very little effectiveness. Especially a player like Rodgers.

  27. Not good to hear if you’re a Packers fan. This probably means they are resting him, which could mean the injury is fairly significant. I’m wondering if it was like the Sam Bradford injury where he bruised the bone. Yikes I remember the night in Chicago when Bradford came out and tried to play, he could not move at all nor could he put his weight on the leg. Its the way Aaron looked Sunday night.

    ================================================================

    The excuse will be, “The Packer’s are who we thought we were, but we let them off the hook!” How do you vike that tidbit of history?

  30. It would almost be better if the Vikings did win a Super Bowl, then their belief system would likely change to it being kind of a big deal to win the big one rather than regular season Sunday’s, Monday’s and Thursday’s. Are you planning your Super Bowl Parade already?

  31. If it were me, I would not be so quick to get him back in. Knees can end your season/career Immediately! Remember RG3, he was brought back way too fast. I would not hesitate to sit him until his knee is solid. Makes no sense to put him at risk in week 2.

    ///////////////////////////////////////

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing. It’s simply a question of how and why Viking fans feel entitled to talk smack of a team with more championships than anybody else, when their team has none.

    What’s with that?

  33. Viking D is licking its chops. I hope Rogers’ injury is minor and he plays so there are no excuses when the Pack gets crushed.

  34. “That he came out without a brace and the direction the knee bent I’m thinking it’s a low grade MCL sprain.”

    They showed a close up shot of his leg multiple times on the broadcast and it was clearly visible Rodgers had a brace on underneath his green sock.

    If you were at the game, there is no way you could have seen it.

  35. The Viking zombies saying the Pack will have to play better than they did Sunday to beat the Vikes seem to forget that they barely escaped their 6-10 opponent on Sunday.

    I’m not blowing air with the Pack winning against the Bears…why are they proud of a very non-impressive win against an equally sub-par opponent?

    I’m sure Pack are not intimidated by the advice of internet basement dwellers

    —-

    I can’t help but laugh when I see my fellow Pack fans talk about the Vikings defense. In case you didn’t know… We haven’t had a respectable defense in nearly a decade. You make us all look foolish.

  37. When Rodgers is healthy, the Green Bay Rodgers are a pretty good football team. When Rodgers is out, the Green Bay Packers are a very bad football team. With a one-legged and immobile Rodgers, Green Bay is an average team. This weekend you will discover that the Vikings are not the Chicago Bears. Zimmer will bring the heat and I hope for your sake that Rodgers gets out of the game in one piece.

  38. None of that matters. The only relevant thing is what happens on Sunday. And Zimmer is “even better”? How many Super Bowls has he won?

    —-

    Packer fans: “recent history doesn’t matter!”

    Also Packer fans: “we won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1967 and 1968 and that’s why we’re the greatest franchise ever!”

    We’re an odd bunch.

  39. All this means is Packer fans have an easy out after their loss on Sunday. They will say it was because Rogers wasn’t 100%. So it will come down to the Vikings vs. Packers in U.S. Bank stadium, at which time there will be another excuse for that loss.

    Truth is the Packers are no longer the big bad wolf from the east. They are more like the cute cuddly cub chewing on your shoe laces. Vikings have better teams to worry about.

  40. You can tell when a word or phrase really hits home to Vikings trolls.

    They will try to use the word that was said to them and rings true about themselves.

    The word triggered has them very hurt and feeling it actually fits them very well. They are trying desperately to spin things and use the word on Packers fans now. Only thing is, that only triggered people obsessively post in threads about a team they claim to not be obsessed with.

    nyneal is awfully salty, I guess the Rodgers injury has triggered the “season is lost, let’s talk about the past”, syndrome.
    ________________________________________________________

    This, coming from a fan of a team whose home base, was the only state dumb enough, to vote moronic blue in 1984. We don’t get offended or triggered by anything. You do.

  42. Viking fans have Rodgers Deranged Syndrome, any mention of his names draws the trolls out in droves. If Rodgers plays (remember, Green Bay has one of the most conservative medical staffs in the NFL), I hope the Vikings blitz on every down because Rodgers has one of the highest QB ratings on blitzes. There probably won’t be a ton of long pass plays but Rodgers on one leg is better than Kizer on two so let’s see what Sunday brings.

  43. What is sooooooo hard for pack fans to accept is being the 2nd best team in the division, with Rodgers’still playing, but his career moving closer and closer to the end. They shouldn’t be mad at Vike fans or the Viking organization for building a superior team over the last several years.

    Be mad at your own organization. You guys crowned McCarthy and Thompson as the standard. All those guys did was ride the coattails of Favre and Rodgers. You have seen for yourself what happens when Rodgers goes down. And, before you want to say that ANY team that lost their starting qb can’t be productive and make the playoffs-look no farther than the Vikes last year. Heck, we made it to the NFCCG with what was considered our 2nd/3rd string QB in Keenum.

    For those that believe that our secondary is anything like the Bears, think again. We have 2 All Pros back there with Rhodes and Harrison Smith. Add Sendejo to the mix, and we are among the best in the league.

    No doubt, the refs will protect Rodgers. If we sneeze on him, the boos will come. The flags could fly.I predict Erin will fall down in complete agony like a FIFA soccer player when Griffen barely lays a hand on him.

    No matter, if we have less flags than the packers AT LAMBLOW, it will be a near first.

    We hope Erin starts. We want him badly. If he is a statue….GOOD LUCK WITH THAT!!! Pack fans will be regretful they let him do so!

    SKOL!!!!!!!!!!

  44. Saw the comment from Zimmer regarding Zimmer being asked if Rodgers will play. CLASSIC Zimmer response: “…..well, he walks on water, so……..”

    We are SO lucky to have Zimmer. What an awesome throwback. Love his snarky comeback!!!!

    SKOL!!!!!!!!!

  45. Yup that’s right the Packers were terrible throughout the 70’s yet the still won the same number of SuperBowls in the 70’s as the Vikings did… let that soak in.

  46. LOL you don’t remember the 70s do you? I do! Pretty soon the past is all you Packer fans will have to talk about the decade of mediocrity is upon you as your team slowly declines over the next 2-3 years. It will be the 70s all over again. Fresh start with Bart right?

    He needs to practice this week. The Vikings are one of the hardest teams to gameplan against, because even though Zimmer may come up with a specific plan, the players might just decide to do something completely different once the game starts.

    They are fairly one dimension. Just really good in that one dimensional. Zimmer is hardly a guru. I get that you are a homer for one of the teams, but you do realize they shouldn’t have advanced past the Divisional round last season? Vikings are not a dynasty in the making.

  49. Be mad at your own organization. You guys crowned McCarthy and Thompson as the standard. All those guys did was ride the coattails of Favre and Rodgers.

  51. Like someone else said it’s gotta be an MCL, bunch of weight landed on the side of the knee. Very painful to walk/stand on, unlike the ACL were it’s not painful until you try to cut sideways. He probably has same injury cutler had in the NFC Title Game. He can try to gut it out, but for 16 weeks? He should probably rest it for a few weeks to heal properly. Very interesting to see what the Pack do. Vikings probably win either way. As Steve Smith would say ICE UP SON.

  52. Packer fans are incapable of looking at their current team in an analytical way. And when they don’t have a good comeback they always revert to their standard comeback of pointing out how they have 13 championships and the Vikings trophy case is empty. I’m still trying to figure out what the 1929 Packers team has to do with the current Packer defensive secondary or backup quarterback situation but I’m sure some Packer fans will enlighten us.

    Seriously, you have every reason to be proud of your team’s past accomplishments and its heritage. However, they are completely irrelevant to Sunday’s game. That every year is a new one is a wonderful thing about sports. And, quite frankly, your suggestion that your fan base should be somehow sheltered from other fan bases behaving much more mildly and respectfully than yours does makes you sound like a whiny little you-know-what. (Since one of your fellow Packer fans has drawn a link between the 1984 election and today, I’ll define that last word as Barbara Bush once applied it to Geraldine Ferraro in that very election–“rhymes with rich.”)

  66. The game is fixed, the NFL won’t allow the Vikings to win this game. Anytime one of our defenders puts a hand on the Diva, a flag will be thrown. If the Diva throws a INT, it will get brought back on some phantom penalty. The packer organization has the league in their back pocket and everyone outside of Green Bay knows it.

    It’s impossible to win a game when you are going against a corrupted league that can dictate the outcome. Not sure what the packer organization did to get the league to favor them, but it’s blantly obvious. So with that said, you know you will be flagged for even breathing on the cross eyed Diva, so make the hits count.

    It’s simply a question of how and why Viking fans feel entitled to talk smack of a team with more championships than anybody else, when their team has none.

    What’s with that?
    __________

    This is the prototypical Packer fan. They actually believe that Viking fans have no right to criticize the Packers because at certain points in the distant past, the Packers have won championships and the Vikings have not. Conversely, Packer fans can say what they want about the Vikings for the same reason. How can you possibly think that the number of championships you’ve won has anything to do with how good your team is this year, or who is going to win on Sunday, or who is allowed to say what? The reason you hate us is because, in your mind, we don’t know our “place.” You should take a long look in the mirror and think about if that bigoted opinion is what you want to be known for.

    Saw the comment from Zimmer regarding Zimmer being asked if Rodgers will play. CLASSIC Zimmer response: “…..well, he walks on water, so……..”

    We are SO lucky to have Zimmer. What an awesome throwback. Love his snarky comeback!!!!

  69. The Bears beat on Rodgers quite a bit on Sunday and were never flagged once. The Packers were flagged 3 times for roughing the passer. The one on Matthews was a good call but the other two were pretty weak.

    The league said before the preseason, this was going to be a point of emphasis. I get it, though; if every team in the league is flagged 3 times a game, the first time a Viking is flagged for it, there will be purple tears a-plenty.

    But ya know, you guys might be right. Maybe the league does hate the Vikings. If they read the comments on sites like this, who could blame them?

  70. I wasn’t aware Sunday was for a championship. I mean, that’s all the Packer fans can talk about. Hey, you can’t talk about Rodgers, your team doesn’t have a championship. Hey, how dare you say Rodgers might be hurt, you don’t even have a championship. Well, last I checked, they play the games one at a time. And the next one, Rodgers may not play, because he’s hurt.

    Nope, you won’t quit acting like an entitled d-bag on an internet forum, but you will quit on your team at halftime if they’re losing. You must have forgotten about all those past championships while you were booing the team in the first quarter.

    He’ll play and he’ll win. The Packers in the 2nd half were outstanding. Their secondary is vastly improved. And their OL didn’t allow pressure in the 2nd half. Packers–31 Vikings–16.

    Book it.
    ***************************************************************************************************

    Oh My God pleeeease……..
    there is NOOOOOO way the queens are scoring 16!

    GO PACK GO!

  73. The fact that Viking fans turn up in greater numbers on threads dealing with a Rodgers just shows you how much they fear him.
    Never saw an opponents injury became the major focus of a fanbase. Guys even changing their screen names to refer to it.
    Because every time he takes the field, they pee a little bit.

    That’s because they held the Bears on EVERY play in the 2nd half and Mathews did his normal cheap shot crap more than once. Rodgers is a great quarterback but he is also a fragile, whiney crybaby!

    Then why do Packers fans always bring it up? Whats with that? Just like Packers fans entitled to talk smack after going what 7-9 last year? What’s with that? Admit it you Packers fans feel entitled don’t you. Kinda liberal don’t ya think? We can say it but you can’t other wise we scream bloody murder? Hint, as much as you want to believe there isn’t any special rules just because your a Packers fan. Take your entitlement where some one cares.
    //////////////////////////////////////

    Because you’re always picking fights, that’s why!!!!! Bears fans aren’t here, Lions fans aren’t here, NFC fans aren’t here, NFL fans aren’t here…….just you guys. Fight-pickers all. Instead of earning respect, you’d rather fight about it.

    That’s OK. As you’re well aware, I have no trouble reacting and responding. I’ll never quit.

    Oh My don’t say anything bad about the Packers. I do it every Monday morning after a Packers loss. I have to deal with not one but two Packers fans who are the moodiest SOBs when the Packers lose. They drink the green Kool-Aid all week then when they lose its catastrophic. I can always tell the young Packers fans from the old, old fans take it in stride but younger fans who only know the Favre/Rodgers era lose their flipping minds and dont’ say anything because they will get even pissier(is that even a word). Its not picking fight dude, its being honest just saying.

    As I’ve said numerous times, if the Packers never again win anything worthwhile (beyond an attaboy banner,) I’m OK. They have already provided enough success to last a lifetime. More. How many fans of teams can say that? Viking fans? Not a chance. That’s why they’re so predictably angry.

  79. Rodgers won’t be able to roll out and buy extra time so he’ll rely on the quick slant passes like they always have. Vikes will put immense rush pressure on him and force him to stay between the tackles and the ample amount of DBs we now have will play tight on the receivers and break up those passes. Oh, and the D line is going to stuff the RBs. Lastly, our O-side of the ball is gonna make us see Claymaker’s back many times while he tries to keep up with the flow. Book THAT!

    Like the Bears weren't ????
    Didn't you pay attention as to how Rodgers circumvented the Bears front 7 rush from mid 3rd and the 4th qtr ??
    That's how he won the game for the most part.

    Vikes fan here! …. Hope Rodgers plays so Packer fans can start to realize that they are the second best team in the division and it will stay that way for the next few years.

    ++++++

    Hope one day you recognize that trying to predict what will happen “in the next few years” in the NFL is foolhardy. And happy birthday.

    When it comes to the Barneys, they always prefer style over substance.
    That’s why there’s no shame in their team’s lack of historical history.
    Coupled with the defensive behavior that accompanies that.
