McCarthy: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to get week to get ready

Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers misses practice Wednesday, Zimmer expects to see him Sunday

Rodgers was carted to the locker room in the second quarter of Sunday night's opener against the Chicago Bears with a left knee injury, but he returned after halftime to lead a 20-point comeback victory, despite putting little weight on his left leg. 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.

Rodgers won't practice again on Thursday but will try to do more in the rehab portion of his work than he did on Wednesday, according to coach Mike McCarthy. He said after the game that while he had to undergo more tests, he planned on playing against Minnesota.

Rodgers said, immediately following the game, that he was definitely going to play against Minnesota.

"This is no layup, that's why it's a day-to-day situation", McCarthy added.

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.

Decision expected today in Toronto council legal challenge
A judge has struck down provincial legislation that would have cut the size of Toronto city council almost in half in the middle of an election.

Aaron Rodgers told the media he has a sprained knee and that it's been "pretty sore the last three days".

Maybe the biggest red flag of all is the SuperContest line handed out by the Westgate, which made the Packers +7 for this game.

You can bet the Vikings are expecting Rodgers. Take Green Bay as a huge home dog without Rodgers and you're feeling even worse.

Not to mention, if Rodgers were to take the field, he would face off against a tough and loaded Vikings defense, that on paper, would give the signal caller issues throughout the game.

"We know he's playing", Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said.
