Packers QB Rodgers to miss second practice

Mitchell Trubisky's pocket presence limited Bears offense vs. Packers in Week 1

Rodgers said he is feeling "a little better every day", but is "pretty sore".

Rodgers said, immediately following the game, that he was definitely going to play against Minnesota. While he did not say that means Rodgers is in danger of missing Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings, he sounded less certain than the quarterback.

There are two very obvious things to look for when trying to find signs as to whether an important National Football League player will take the field or not.

McCarthy said Wednesday that Rodgers would be day-to-day, but insisted the quarterback working with rehabbing players was "not a setback".

"You hate that you're dealing with something like this in the first week, but you feel similar to this Week 13, 14, 15, 16, 17", Rodgers said.

Aaron Rodgers called his injury a "sprained knee".

Rodgers walked back out halftime, took over on the first series of the second half and threw three touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to rally the Packers from 20 points down to a 24-23 victory.

Rehabbing on Wednesday was not a setback, McCarthy said.

As we sit here on Thursday morning, we have not received an indication one way or another from the Packers whether or not Aaron Rodgers will play on Sunday against the Vikings. Will the Packers risk putting Rodgers out there for the whole game knowing he could get hurt?

"I think anytime a player comes off a game where he's injured, obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy added.

The latter makes more sense if we're being honest.

Rodgers said Wednesday that he would have no issue playing Sunday without any practice reps this week.
