Aaron Rodgers exits injury report, again

So much for a setback.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who said earlier this week that he suffered a setback to his knee injury that may entail wearing a bigger brace (if the brace gets any bigger it will be wearing him), has once again exited the final injury report in advance of Monday night’s game against the 49ers.

Rodgers has no injury designation for the Week Six matchup against the 1-4 49ers.

Eight Packers are listed as questionable for the game: cornerback Jaire Alexander (groin), receiver Geronimo Allison (hamstring), cornerback Brashaud Breeland (hamstring), tackle Bryan Bulaga (knee), receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring), guard Justin McCray (shoulder), tackle Jason Spriggs (ankle), and safety Jermaine Whitehead (back).

Tight end Jimmy Graham missed Thursday’s practice with a knee injury. He also exited the final report.

Rodgers originally injured his knee in Week One against the Bears. He missed the rest of the opening half of the season-opening game, and he has played ever since.

  1. McCarthy seems a bit witless hoping for a competitive advantage thinking that some team might actually give credence to the idea of Rodgers sitting out…

  2. He wore a lighter smaller brace in the Detroit game and he took a hit to the knee. They were thinking about him going back to the bigger brace he had been wearing. He is hoping he can still wear the lighter brace Monday Night. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Some of you spun it into a huge deal and claimed he should sit out for the rest of the season now(You wish) Other jealous losers still saying he faked the injury from the start.

    I realize you trolls are waiting on the edge of your seat to spin something about the Packers to the negative, but not going to work with me around👌

  3. Gamesmanship. Can’t win straight up so resorting to cheap moves.

    Somebody pay attention to me!
    ——
    Lord the collection of stupidity on display in so few posts is astounding. To the first genius: What exactly is cheap about AR exiting the injury report?

    To the second one: Every team is required to submit a report so please….just stop. It’s sad.

  4. Who fakes more injuries than this diva?
    —–
    Everson Griffen?

    And are the trolls seemingly getting more desperate and ridiculous than usual or is it me?

  5. They have to come to Packers stories…no Viking stories to speak of. Minne seems to be like not newsworthy since the Love Boat and the Whizzinator incidents.

  6. What about exiting the injury report is gamesmanship?

    Well you know what they say, sometimes it’s better to be thought a fool then to comment and remove all doubt. Here is your sign buddy, I hope you like it.

  7. I know you write these articles to stir up the Vikings trolls, but the reason he’s not on the injury report is the NFL got rid of the “probable” designation. Everyone knew he would play, and he’s not injured enough for questionable, so he’s off the report. No gamesmanship or injury report shenanigans. The NFL chose this.

  8. When San Fran is up 24-13 late in the 4th quarter, I can guarantee that Rodgers limp will return and the announcers will talk about what a gutsy performance he’s putting on and that the Packers would be up by a couple touchdowns if Rodgers were 100%. So predictable.

  9. Half the posts are Packer fans crying about Vikings fans. Must be difficult for you to defend your $30 mil guy when you never know what he’s bringing each week.

  10. It is pretty funny how just mentioning Aaron Rodgers’ name triggers Vikings’ fans into making embarrassingly ludicrous comments. It only reflects poorly on them.

    The gamesmanship comment is especially funny, as are the comments about his brace size or that they are trying to gain some sort of competitive advantage by using the injury report. Then he’s faking it, or it’s McCarthy’s doing something, plus the irony of the posts calling him a drama queen, which are posted by drama queens themselves.

    Stop embarrassing Vikings fans and making them look like dopes. Just because you get to say things anonymously doesn’t mean that the comments have to be stupid. It’s just one of the reasons that Vikings’ fans aren’t considered knowledgeable football fans and get little respect. Too bad the stands of their stadium are stocked with corporate suits and Edina housewives.

    I don’t get it. Commenters on this site can’t wait to dump on Brady and Rodgers. You’ll miss them when they’re gone.

    ————

    It is sad.

    Rob should be in momentarily to fet his passive aggressive rodgers shtick in.

  12. “Tell the diva no one is paying attention.”

    Says the guy reading the article about him and commenting on it.

    Lolz

  13. As a GB fan, I just wish he would retire. Then he could play in celebrity golf tournaments and cuddle up at night with Danica

    Time to go AR.

    Frank “the Bears fan” defending his Packer buddies because he gets lonely on the Bears threads that he’s hardly ever on.

    +++++

    The point, exactly, is that we don’t need to defend him. “Doesn’t get along with his family”? His business. “So arrogant”? 323 td’s vs. 78 int’s… I’d be arrogant too. “Throws teammates under the bus” – Relax. Pointing out a position group needs to do better is different than singling out a teammate.

    Ironically you hear about “Erin” so often because you complain about how much you hear about Erin every chance you get. PFT loves the predictability. We have learned to endure it by ignoring most of it.

  16. Not defending Packer buddies.

    Just pointing out the silliness of Vikings’ fans.

    Which Bears thread should I be on right now? Help me out here- I haven’t seen many lately.

  17. On the injury report, off the injury report, on again, off again, bigger brace, smaller brace, bigger brace, no brace, might be limping, not limping, “I think I see a limp”, not limping. You tell me what Green Bay is doing, it’s not real hard to figure out. I do feel bad for Rodgers but not because of his leg.

  18. Viking trollls are in a hate-filled, fight-picking world of their own. Everywhere you go, nobody can stand them. It’s not because they cheer for the Vikings, it’s because they have no pride, no shame, Their football acumen is built upon a solid foundation of bitter frustration and futility lasting for four generations. Nothing they say or do will ever change that. They know it too, that’s why they like to pick fights…..to camouflage the sad reality of it all.

  19. Rodgers = Most OEVERRATED player in NFL….BY FAR! Love when he limps and runs to make a throw, 5 minutes later he is fine. If they win its because of Rodgers, if they lose its because of his knee. HAS BEEN!! Sad they still compare him to Brady, who is STILL at 41 night and day better than Rodgers. As is Brees

    It’s the bye week blues. Bye week sucks when your team is playing well. Give it a couple days, there will be plenty of Bear news the rest of the season. They are definitely making it interesting in the North!!!

  21. If he’s limited in practice or doesn’t practice, he’ll be questionable on the injury report. If he practices in full, he shouldn’t be on the injury report. I think everybody understands that, but some of my fellow Viking fans like to get under the skin of a lot of Packer fans. They appear to be very good at it.

  22. If you miss practice its NFL policy to list a guy on the injury report even if it’s not injury related, ie, Everson Griffen.

    Rodgers missed some practice time this week but is 100 percent going to play so they removed the questionable status. Where is the cheapness of that.

    If you dont understand this stuff then there is no helping you.

    Pathetic Viking fans will never miss a feeble attempt to make Rodgers look bad or call him a drama queen. Haters are gonna hate, it’s what they do.

    You are correct.

    They really shouldn’t respond to you passive aggressive posts, based more on envy than any unbiased opinion.

    Hopefully they take your advice.

    Actually Im starting to question how much this viking internet fanbase actually does know. Im guessing most of the posters are only one or two guys.

    Thanks for showing up, Kind of fun calling your shot for you.
