  • Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

Vikings safety Harrison Smith, fresh off an NFC North Player of the Week award, knows just how hard it is going up against Rodgers.

The Packers quarterback then provided his own update, telling reporters he suffered a sprained knee in Green Bay's Week 1 win over the Chicago Bears and that he feels "a little better every day" despite not practicing at all Wednesday instead staying inside for treatment. Asked at his locker if it was accurate to say his injury was a sprained knee, Rodgers said, "Sure. say sprained knee". "We'll take it day by day and learn as we go".

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. "A lot of adrenaline Sunday night and obviously, it's pretty sore the last three days".

"He'll be in the rehab group today", McCarthy added.

Rodgers echoed McCarthy on taking it on a day by day basis and revealed he didn't take pain medications Sunday night.

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer isn't buying it. "We'll see what tomorrow brings", McCarthy said during his Wednesday news conference. It will be warmer outside than it was for that contest, but the fans will likely be chilly toward Barr whether Rodgers gets the green light to play or not.
