Coach McCarthy on Rodgers’ recovery from knee injury

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Aaron Rodgers' status is "day by day".

Green Bay have yet to determine if Rodgers will even be able to practice at all this week ahead of their home opener.

Wearing a brace could be an option, depending on how the quarterback feels later in the week.

If Rodgers is unable to give it a go, the team will turn to backup DeShone Kizer to take up the spot start.

Running back Montgomery says Rodgers' recovery felt like divine intervention.

So it's understandable why Zimmer and the Vikings think Rodgers will play. "And they are going to bring some exotics on third down that we have to be prepared for". "He'll be given the whole week to get ready".

No surprise there, as the veteran actor - best known for playing Fonzie in Happy Days - was a firm favourite. More than 40 years on from his first nomination, this was his first win.


"There was a lot of adrenaline", Rodgers said, according to Demovsky, "and (it's) pretty sore the last three days". Green Bay has much of their Super Bowl hopes on his shoulders, and his loss for any significant time in the season could hurt those chances.

Rodgers was noticeably hobbled but got some big-time assistance from the running game, which totaled a season-high 226 yards. He tore the ACL in his knee in high school, and played with the injury for four years before having surgery while in college at California.

He described how he was cleared to play by the team doctor at halftime against the Bears so long as he could "deal with the pain". "To be in this room, you've got to be mentally and physical tough".

For the Vikings, it is not a question of if they will see Rodgers take the field, but how they will prepare for him if he is hampered by his injury.

The Packers can't just sit Rodgers if he feels well enough to play, especially considering it's a big divisional game. However, the knee injury he picked seemed to inflame during the week which has seen him miss practice. He said he would try to return to practice on Thursday and was optimistic about playing Sunday. They've still got a little bit of time.

Jones, a second-year safety, missed Week 1 while still recovering from an ankle injury.
