During the team's open locker room period after Wednesday's practice, Rodgers told reporters he stayed inside to receive treatment and categorized his injury as a sprained knee sprain.
Aaron Rodgers called his injury a "sprained knee".
A win for Chicago in week one against the Packers, especially after recently acquiring Khalil Mack, would have been a huge confidence boost for the Bears. "We'll take it day by day and learn as we go". "He'll be given the whole week to get ready".
McCarthy is expected to announce on Wednesday whether Rodgers will be able to play or not. Knowing coach Mike Zimmer, I'd expect plenty of pressure on Rodgers. The Packers quarterback gave a blunt one-word answer when he was asked if he needed to practice this week in order to play.
Rodgers said he was feeling progressively better over the last couple days, though still sore.
If Rodgers does play, it would be his first game against the Vikings since the two-time MVP broke his right collarbone following a hit from Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr on October 15.
Rodgers, who missed nine games last season because of the broken collarbone, recently signed a record four-year, $134 million extension with $100 million in guarantees.
"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said.
