Rodgers suffered a knee injury in week one and although he came back in the second half and led the Packers to a victory against the Chicago Bears he is still questionable for this game.

The two-time MVP told ESPN's Rob Demovksy that he avoided taking pain medication Sunday. "So, we'll see what tomorrow brings".

Rodgers said in his postgame interview Sunday night on NBC that he would play vs. the Vikings, against whom he broke his collarbone a year ago.

Instead, he did rehab work on the side and extensive exercises with the medical staff inside the stadium. "We'll take it day by day and learn as we go".




Meanwhile, if there's a player not needing practice leading to a game, Rodgers would certainly qualify given his familiarity with the offensive scheme and the upcoming opponent.

"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said. "But. two days is not going to make or break whether (we have) success, whether it's me and DeShone, me and Aaron, whoever it may be". That group includes linebacker Anthony Barr, who broke Rodgers' collarbone with a hit early last season. "To be in this room, you've got to be mentally and physical tough".

Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy says Rodgers will be given the whole week to get ready for the Packers' game on Sunday against the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings.
