Packers taking day-by-day approach with QB Aaron Rodgers

Packers Wire logo Packers Wire 9/12/2018 Zach Kruse


Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will work in the rehab group during Wednesday practice, and the Green Bay Packers are planning to take a day-by-day approach as Rodgers works his way back from a knee injury suffered in Week 1.

Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Rodgers will be given the entire week to get ready to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Players in the rehab group generally work to the side of practice and are not involved in live team drills, meaning backup DeShone Kizer will take the first-team reps on Wednesday.

Rodgers injured his left knee at the end of a sack against the Chicago Bears in Week 1. He left the game in the first half but returned to start the third quarter, helping spark a comeback from 20 points down.

Buzzed on adrenaline in the immediate moments following Sunday night's comeback win, Rodgers confidently confirmed he'd play against the Vikings in Week 2. He's since backtracked, stating on ESPN Radio Tuesday that he's now taking it one day at a time - a line relayed by the Packers coach Wednesday.

McCarthy will speak again before practice Thursday.

The Packers will deliver official playing designations for injured players on Friday.
