Aaron Rodgers doesn’t practice, “definitely” playing Sunday

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t practice last week because he was on the COVID-19 reserve list and he didn’t practice on Wednesday for other reasons.

Rodgers is on the injury report because of a toe injury that he called “a little painful” earlier this week and he wasn’t on the field as the Packers began on-field preparation for Sunday’s game in Minnesota. After the practice, Rodgers said that he would be ready to go against the Vikings.

“I’m definitely playing Sunday,” Rodgers said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. “Today was a mental day so I think a number of us were either limited or DNPs. Thankful to get a day to just to do some rehab. See how the week plays out practice-wise, but definitely playing Sunday.”

Left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), running back Aaron Jones (knee), wide receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder), and wide receiver Malik Taylor (abdomen) were also out of practice. Wide receiver Davante Adams (shoulder), linebacker Rashan Gary (elbow), defensive lineman Kingsley Keke (concussion), and cornerback Kevin King (groin, shoulder) were the team’s limited participants.

  1. “Today was a mental day.”

    Yep, Aaron. After all the lying you have done this year, you’ve certainly earned it!

  2. I’m amazed by his and every other player’s fast recovery this season. Surely it should be reported on which treatments are helping these athletes recover so fast that they don’t need to be placed on IR.

  3. Rodgers needs to be careful. The Packers beat Seattle because the defense shut them out. Rodgers and his offence only scored 17 points….rushing. Rodgers threw for 0 touchdowns and one interception.

    If Rodgers plays the same way against the Vikings, the Packers will lose.

    Maybe.
    But Rodgers never seems to play the same way twice.
    He’s very complicated.

  5. The Packers know this is the Vikings’ SuperBowl, and they’ll be pulling out the stops.

  6. “Has there ever been a week when Kevin King is not on the injury list?”

    It’s like Antonio Gibson on the WFT…..questionable every single week

  7. Dah, he’s playing the Minnesota Vikings, why does he need to practice-the Packers look at this as “vacation week”!

  8. Rodgers needs all the practice he can get if he wants to beat the Super Bowl bound Vikings.

    Bwahahahahahahahaha….

    He has been one of or the top corner since week 5 and playing lights out.

  10. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves here. It’s generally a safe bet to plan on splitting the division games, winning at home and losing on the road. I believe the Vikings will be an especially tough out in the McStadium.

  11. The Vikings know this is the Peckers’ SuperBowl, and they’ll be pulling out the stops.

  12. I saw Kevin King’s PFF grade the other day and scheduled an eye exam
