Rodgers misses practice Wednesday, Zimmer expects to see him Sunday

Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

As you can imagine, the stadium went absolutely wild, especially after Aaron Rodgers came back after he suffered a knee injury.

"All I'm going to say on that is, he's on the right track", inside linebackers coach Glenn Pires said.

As far as Mike Zimmer is concerned, there is no way Rodgers is missing Sunday's divisional matchup.


The general theme from both Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy as that they're taking the process of his rehabilitation one day at a time. "We'll see what tomorrow brings", McCarthy said during his Wednesday news conference.

For now, it appears that Rodgers is doing everything he can to make sure he'll be able to play, but again, he's not willing to promise that he'll be out there against Minnesota. He helped his team mount a 20-point comeback to win 24-23.

Rodgers said he is feeling "a little better every day", but is "pretty sore". "Anytime a player comes off a game where he's injured, there's the hope of playing". The 14-year veteran said he does not need to practice to play. Instead he worked with players rehabbing, which also included receiver Davante Adams. "He'll be given the whole week to get ready". There were a couple throws in which Rodgers said he got a "jolt" of pain after putting weight on his left leg.
