Packers remove Aaron Rodgers from injury report

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is good to go for Sunday’s game against the Lions, and there’s no question about it.

The Packers removed Rodgers from the official injury report, meaning his knee is healthy enough that he’s practicing without restrictions and there’s no chance it will keep him off the field on Sunday.

Rodgers had been on every injury report since suffering a knee injury against the Bears in Week One, and there were concerns that his injured knee could be an issue for him in three subsequent games, but he hasn’t looked any worse for wear.

Packers cornerback Kevin King was also removed from the injury report, so he’ll play for the first time since suffering a groin injury in Week Two. Tight end Jimmy Graham (knee) and tackle Bryan Bulaga (back) also were removed from the injury report.

Eight Packers are listed as questionable: receivers Davante Adams (calf) and Geronimo Allison (concussion/hamstring), cornerbacks Jaire Alexander (groin) and Bashaud Breeland (hamstring), safeties Kentrell Brice (ankle) and Jermaine Whitehead (back), and guards Justin McCray (shoulder) and Lucas Patrick (back).

Wide receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring) has already been ruled out.

  1. I don’t know what ya’ll were watching but I saw a guy last week who’s knee was still in bad enough shape that it’s still going to impact him this week.

  2. Injury report or not, I think McCarthy would be best to call a balanced game and not put him in the fire more than he needs to be. I think Aaron Jones is the real deal and should we more touches. A balanced offense would put the Packers’ offense on another level and keep drives longer while the defense adjusts to their new scheme. This is coming from a Vikings fan.

  3. Seeing as they didn’t actually practice today, he couldn’t have practiced without restrictions! So there was no knowing if the knee would have bothered or limited him. It means little or nothing.

  4. Was he really as hurt as he was letting on? Even last week he was skipping around with completions and limping on misses. Whatever, Lions will win in Detroit, this is coming from a packer fan

  5. Glad to here he’s better…. the team is funner to watch when he plays at full strength….

  6. matthews stays on the injury report.
    He’s still emotionally damaged on because of the rodgers rule.

    That’s funny!

  8. Matthews has the Barr Rule mastered by now. He’ll be a renewed beast. Even Barr can’t figure out the Barr Rule……among other things.

    You’re a Packer fan now, or is it easier to pick fights when you pretend?

    From watching Rodgers over the years, it’s pretty much a given he was hurt much worse than he was letting on. He’s that tough.

    If he has switched, it shouldn`t surprise us. 57 plus years of futility and ineptness from the Minnesota has probably caused a lot of fans to switch allegiances.

  11. I would think Viking fans should be more concerned about your upcoming 3 rd loss in a row instead of worrying about the Packers injury report.

  12. Man, I look at the list of names week after week and SMH. The DB’s clutter that list all season.

    Matthew Stafford always seems to make our DB’s look learning impaired (pardon my “insensitivity”). Fans of ANY team can attest to the passion involved in Divisional games and the Pack/Lions are no exception. As always, it’s going to be an NFC North bloodletting. A typical Black and Blue Division slobber-knocking session. Packers sure could use all of those guys since the guys NOT on the list will limp off by the middle of the 2nd quarter.

    Good! I want NO EXCUSES from Packers fans this week when they get beat by The Lions!

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

    When the lions beat the packers that’s all you will hear, excuses. “Refs made bad calls” “injuries “ “mean linebackers”. And whatever the lions do, hopefully they do not hurt Rodgers. The pack fans will be relentless talking about the “cheap shot lions”. They still talk about Suh stepping on the chosen one and Suh has been gone from the lions for how long? I’m sure the Detroit coaches are telling the defense not to graze their fingertips on Rodgers helmet also. The lions will have a lot to over come, ROAR!
