Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is preparing to face Aaron Rodgers. He said his knee is still sore, but that it's improving every day. Even though that's a small sample size, let's take a look at whose stock is rising and falling after one week of football in Green Bay.
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that Aaron Rodgers' status is day-to-day ahead of Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field. Try to do more today. "That's why it's a day to day situation, '" he tweeted.
Rodgers continues to nurse a knee injury he suffered during last Sunday's game against the Bears. He stayed inside to work with trainers while the rest of the team practiced.
Rodgers said in his postgame interview Sunday night on NBC that he would play vs. the Vikings, against whom he broke his collarbone previous year.
"I'm sure there are a lot of experts out there who are forecasting things but we're taking it one day at a time", Rodgers said. Although the quarterback didn't participate in practice, Rodgers did take some time to answer questions about his left knee injury, which he characterized as a sprain. However, the idea of not playing this weekend hasn't crossed his mind.
