Aaron Rodgers will “try to do more” than he did on Wednesday

AP

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t practice on Wednesday due the knee injury he sustained in the season opener and said after the session that he doesn’t need to practice this week in order to feel ready to play against the Vikings this weekend.

He’s one day away from missing the entire week of practice. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, that Rodgers is “going to try to do more today than yesterday,” but that he will remain in the rehab group working on the side during Thursday’s practice.

While Vikings coach Mike Zimmer and plenty of other people think there’s little chance that Rodgers will miss a game against Green Bay’s NFC North rivals, McCarthy said it is “no layup” that the quarterback will be able to play this weekend. He’ll get an official injury designation on Friday.

Wide receiver Davante Adams, who also missed practice on Wednesday, may be getting one as well. McCarthy said that Adams, who is listed with a shoulder injury, will be a limited participant on Thursday, which would seem to bode well for his chances of catching passes from anyone that might be under center for the Packers.

  1. Why would we even consider risking our entire franchise for a week 2 game that we have very little chance to win, if any? If McCarthy lets Rodgers out on the field Sunday, he should be fired on the spot.

  2. If Aaron was a stump of a person named Matt with one arm, my Packers could still win this game. Because Aaron can overcome any problem. Even having an inferior team. And being on the decline.

  3. I know these articles on Aaron mean a lot to the obsessed Vikings fans. They are waiting on the edge of their seat for any glimmer of hope that Aaron won’t play. They won’t admit it, but they will be letdown when it is announced he is playing.

    I though am more interested in whether Oren Burks is going to play. He practiced yesterday in a limited capacity. I will be interested to hear how practice goes today for him.

    LOL

    Honestly, that is right out of the Roethlisberger Drama Queen 101 Book.

    He had tears in his eyes and was shaking his head while riding on that cart, and then he came out 30 mins later like nothing happened.

    Sad and pathetic, really.

    Rodgers is quietly becoming more and more of a primaddonna, seeking constant attention.

  6. As a Vikings fan I worry every time we play against him. Hopefully he feels the same way. He may have to evade the pass rush on one good leg. Probably will throw short quick patterns to negate the rush putting more pressure on the linebackers or safeties playing close to the line of scrimmage. That will draw the coverage in close and free up the long ball. The Vikings pass rush will need to get there because make no mistake, he will play.

  7. Do what’s right for yourself Aaron, so as to not make it worse. This Viking fan wants to see you play November 25 as it will mean something. I will be there.☺

  8. When asked by reporters is he planned to practice this week with the team, Rodgers replied “Team? What’s a team?”

  9. Whoa…the trolls are calling it early. No need to play the game. See you Sunday. I’m sure the Vikes appreciate the support you offer from your keyboard.

    If he can overcome anything why has he only won 1 Super Bowl 8 years ago?

  11. It won’t surprise if Rogers starts and it wouldn’t surprise me if he doesn’t, but comes in to start the 2nd half after a Kizer gets them off to a miserable start. I wouldn’t, however, expect the Vikings to just sit back and give the game to GB like Chicago did.

  12. If McCarthy lets Rodgers out on the field Sunday, he should be fired on the spot.

    You are one of the Packers obsessed Vikings fans I was speaking about Rob. How are you? I know you are quickly running in every Packers article this week hoping to see something that could swing the game in your favor.

    My advice to you is to give up any hope you have left that Aaron won’t play.

    Not really. It’s of interest since Vikings are playing Packers this weekend. But, it’s really not something to worry about. 1 of 16 games. Vikings have won 4 of last 5, most with AR. With your QB, game is fairly even, with Vikings still having slight edge. With AR not 100%, that advantage is bigger. Without AR, Packers are….well, we’ve seen what they are. Your team is a wildcard with him. No playoffs without him. It’s that simple. Honestly, it’s so much more fun to beat your team with him playing. And we’ve enjoyed a lot of that the last couple years.

  33. I thought he was good to go? Why would you blow any chance at a Super Bowl by playing your franchise player with a knee injury? That is Football stupid. Coach McCarthy and the doctors need to be asked what changed from the 2 half of the Bears game to today? What a joke.

    You might be right like 8 years ago. I think I can speak for most Viking fans that have watched Zim and Slick Rick build a defensive wrecking machine that we want Erin healthy and in the game.

    Umm, Spygate and Deflategate are 100% factually proven lies. It is old news at this point. Do not make me post Cowher’s interview again or show you the 56 lies in the Wells Report or the date Brady was exonerated.

    You, meanwhile, hate science, believe in the tooth fairy and what goodell says to you. That means your IQ is well under 100 or you are 7 years old.

    Lastly, I never said Troy Brown is a HoF player. I did say, Bruschi has a better resume than Nick Buonconti and more rings, hence it would lead one to believe Bruschi had the better career.

    It is a simple fact.

    Either remove Buonconti or put Bruschi in.

    I watched this defense prepare for the season all training camp. I know what Oren Burks adds to this defense. He missed week 1 and yes I hope he plays this week.

    Vikings slight adavantage over Packers with Rodgers. New DC and OC will take some time to get rolling. Probably don’t play very well the first few games.

    Now tell me how your post seasons have been.

    Oh right. You just made it sound like it’s more enjoyable just to beat the Packers(less than .500 team without Rodgers by your admission) than be humiliated like your last two playoff runs.

    Sounds like lowering standards just to have something to be proud of.

    “Hey we beat the Packers!!!”
    “The Packers are a below .500 team without Rodgers!!!”
    “Hey we aren’t very good if we just thoroughly enjoyed beating a below .500 team without its QB!!!”

  47. The Vikings are going to win this game regardless!! Green Bay simply doesn’t have the supporting cast to win against one of NFL’s most complete teams, even with a great/incredible QB.
    The only question is if GB makes it interesting by playing Rogers. Without question, Rogers is one of, if not the best QB to ever play and there isn’t a team that wouldn’t take him in a sec!
    Consider this, if Rogers’s plays even slightly injured, GB is risking further injury by playing Zimmer’s defense.
    Regardless, these games are always fun because no matter what, the outcome is never given.

    C’mon, man….

    You aren’t as dense as most of your fellow Packer fans, are you?

    It’s clear what Conor said and meant – It’s more fun beating the Packers WITH Rodgers than without Rodgers. Most teams in the NFL can beat the Packers without Rodgers – that was clearly proven last season.

    Conor made no comments about the post season. That’s you acting like a Packer troll – which you normally don’t do.

    No need to have 5 drinks to comprehend. Actually, less alcohol would help.

  50. This will be a typical rivalry game. If Rodgers plays, the Packers will win easily at home. If he doesn’t, it will likely be a last minute score that decides the outcome either way.

    But rest assured, if the Vikings lose there will be SOME excuse that it will be blamed on. Most likely the refs.

    Since winning the Super Bowl in 2010, let’s look at how the Packers postseason has ended each year afterward.
    In 2011, the 15-1 Packers lost to the 9-7 Giants 37-20.
    In 2012, lost in Divisional Playoffs to 49ers 45-31
    In 2013, lost in Wild Card round to 49ers 23-20
    In 2014, lost NFC Championship to Seahawks 28-22 (OT)
    In 2015, lost in Divisional Playoffs to Cardinals 26-20 (OT)
    In 2016, lost NFC Championship to Falcons 44-21
    In 2017, did not make the playoffs

    You would think that the team with the “Greatest QB of All-Time” would have a slightly better postseason record than that.

    “Let’s look at your losses”. You have fewer wins in your losses than I expected. Logic is hard.

  53. I think it is hilarious that a member of the Vikings fan base would post the Packers post season record in the playoffs. Especially when we know EVERY Vikings ost season in their entire miserable history ended with a payoff loss and NEVER a CHAMPIONSHIP.

    I won’t even get into the most recent NFCCG choke job where their supposedly dominant defense was completely humiliated and the game was over by the 2nd quarter.

    SKOLOLOL!

  54. In 2011, the 15-1 Packers lost to the 9-7 Giants 37-20
    In 2012, lost in Divisional Playoffs to 49ers 45-31… 579 yards allowed
    In 2013, lost in Wild Card round to 49ers 23-20.. Rodgers scored his last time on field
    In 2014, lost NFC Championship to Seahawks 28-22… 19-7 lead with 3:58 to go
    In 2015, lost in Divisional Playoffs to Cardinals 26-20… Rodgers scored his final drive
    In 2016, lost NFC Championship to Falcons 44-21.. 493 yards allowed

    He was the highest rated post season passer as of the Seahawk game.

    He’s a mere 1.5 points from being the top rated active post season passer. 1 good quarter.. hell, 1 good DRIVE.

    What more could you ask of your QB? He’s not the one who isn’t getting it done.

  55. What is hilarious is the envy by the fanbase of a team that made Kirk Cousins the highest paid QB in the NFL at the time e was signed. A top 16 QB being made the highest paid NFL QB. With ZERO playoff wins. Sad. Very very sad. Rodgers should have asked for double and he would still be underpaid based on that comparison.

  56. When you have a sub .500 postseason record and 1 ring, you’re not a king compared to Brady.

    C’mon, man….

    You aren’t as dense as most of your fellow Packer fans, are you?

    It’s clear what Conor said and meant – It’s more fun beating the Packers WITH Rodgers than without Rodgers. Most teams in the NFL can beat the Packers without Rodgers – that was clearly proven last season.

    Conor made no comments about the post season. That’s you acting like a Packer troll – which you normally don’t do.

    No need to have 5 drinks to comprehend. Actually, less alcohol would help.

    —-

    My point stands.

    If you guys wanna crown yourselves, than beating the most successful team in your division the last 10 years should be a goal. More playoff appearances, more superbowl appearances and a superbowl victory in those 10 years. The current team does not smell of the early years, but is still competitive for the division in all years except last year.

    They can’t be a terrible team and yet the team you take the most enjoyment beating, unless you have low standards for you team as a whole.

    To put it the way you guys are throwing it out here makes a case for alchohol induced logic. I haven’t had a drink in two weeks so I’m well out of the running.

  58. But you guys keep saying Rodgers is the greatest QB of all-time. If that is so, why has he only won one Super Bowl? And when you include Favre, that’s nearly 30 years of Hall of Fame quarterbacking for the Packers, yet only one Lombardi trophy for each. That puts them in the same category as Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson, Mark Rypien, Jeff Hostetler and Nick Foles. With that much talent at QB over 30 years, you’d think the Packers should have won at least 5 or 6 Super Bowls.

    Not true, the 1969 Minnesota Vikings were the undisputed NFL Champions. While the AFL Champion Kansas City Chiefs may have won Super Bowl IV, that did not make them the NFL champs. It wasn’t until the merge in 1970 that the Super Bowl winner was declared the NFL champion. I will pay you a million dollars if I am wrong.

Why don’t the Vikings ever list that as a championship? You’d think they would given that they have ZERO. Even the team isn’t stupid enough to tought that as a championship.

It is indisputable that if Minnesota fans are insistent on claiming that they were ONE time, actually champions, then all of Packer nation can truly declare the Packers as 15 time champions. However, the NFL who is keeper of the flame so to speak, neither recognizes that Green Bay was double champions in 1966 and 1967, they also do not recognize a team that was embarrassed in the 1970 Superbowl as being champions. But explaining this to a fan base such as the Minnesota one would be like trying to explain it to a rock.

    OK. It’s not as complicated as you guys are making it. In the first four years of the Super Bowl it was a game played between the NFL champions and the AFL champions. (Are you still following me?). The Packers were already NFL champions in 1966 and 1967 because they defeated the Dallas Cowboys both years in the NFL championship game. Whether or not they beat the Chiefs and Raiders in Super Bowl I & II would not change their status as NFL champions. Sure beating those two teams made them Super Bowl champions too, but it had no bearing on their NFL titles. Likewise those wins did not make the Packers the AFL champions. That was already established. Likewise, when the AFL NY Jets upset the NFL Baltimore Colts in Super Bowl III, it did not make the Jets NFL champion just as the Kansas City Chiefs win in Super Bowl IV did not make them NFL champions. (Still with me?) For the record, the Chiefs and Jets have each won a Super Bowl but not an NFL title. That’s simply the way it was prior to the 1970 NFL/AFL merge when all teams became NFL teams. As for your assertion that it means the Packers have won 15 NFL titles instead of 13, that’s not true either. Beating KC and Oak in the Super Bowl did not give them an additional NFL title, they already had that when they beat the Cowboys. You guys really need to study the history of the Super Bowl. It was a completely different deal prior to 1970.

    We know the history. You lost the game that mattered. The only time anyone brings it up is to justify a purple sensation.

    You got whacked in the Superbowl. NFL Champion is a consolation prize; an participation ribbon once they decided to play a Super Bowl. Yes it was different before that. The proper title for the winner by NFL standards is World Champion. It encompasses Super Bowls and NFL Championships prior to the Super Bowl.

    You dont hear Colt or Packer people touting NFL chamiponships in those years.

    So for your education. The Vikings have zero world championships. Packers 13.

    You’re exactly right Frank. This “we have a NFL championship” is worn. It’s the last game of the year is what counts. The Vikings have come close many times, and I know they will win it one day. If you think Viking fans are obnoxious now wait until the Vikings win the Super a Bowl. They will break the internet. The Vikings have a chance this year but a lot of things have to happen. I listened to the Viking/Brown game on radio 27-7, I was just a little kid.

    So let’s get back to the original story. With Rodgers, without Rodgers, with the Packers 13 NFL titles or without them, it doesn’t really matter…the Vikings will beat the Pack in Green Bay this weekend. Book it! When healthy Rodgers may be the best player on the field, but this current Vikings team is the better team. Even your 1929, 1930 & 1931 teams can’t change that fact.

Boxing can`t claim that someone is the Middleweight champion of the world because not everyone who boxes professionally is allowed to compete for the title.
    You are so obsessed with trying to make the Minnesota team relevant that you stop at nothing to try and convince everyone that they matter. If they were to ever win a Superbowl, and nothing would indicate that they will anytime soon, then they will become relevant. You do realize that the Minnesota team is the longest tenured team from the original NFL without a championship, don`t you? The Rams, Browns, Cardinals, and Lions have all been champions, something never said about the team from Minnesota.I know you have trouble comprehending this, but you aren`t champions of anything when you lose the Superbowl, no matter when it was played.
    Finally, all you Minnesota fans like to try and disparage Green Bay for having 2 Hall of Fame QB`s, and have only 2 Superbowl wins to show for it. So please explain how a team with 6 Hall of Famers plus a coach all on the team from the 70`s, and have nothing to show for it except 4 embarrassing beatdowns.

    Thank you…

    You fell right into the trap. The Arena Football League and the USFL were not anywhere near the same type of leagues as the one’s that the NFL took teams from over the years.

    Examples:

    Cleveland Browns of the AAFC – won four straight AAFC Championships. The following year they joined the NFL, and one their 5th straight championship. Proving that the best AAFC team was better than all the NFL teams.

    The San Francisco 49ers were also an AAFC team. Their first year in the NFL, they finished ahead of your Green Bay Packers.

    Even the Green Bay Packers started in a different football league – the APFA

    And we haven’t even started talking about the American Football League yet…

    Competing football league teams, back in the day, were as good as or better than the NFL teams.

    See above.

    Today, I can agree that an NFL Championship can be considered a “World” Championship as there is no peer.

    However, back in the dark ages, when the Packers garnered most of their NFL Championships (some without any playoffs whatsoever, others with just a single playoff game because the NFL was such a small league), the NFL just refused to play against the rival leagues.

    The Cleveland Browns might suck today, but they were the best of the best of the AAFC and when they joined the NFL, they were proven to be better than any NFL team.
