Aaron Rodgers Hoping Knee Doesn't Get Worse

While speaking to reporters Wednesday, the Packers quarterback said he can't guarantee his knee injury won't get worse if he continues to play this season, hinting that some time away from the field may be on the horizon. Hopefully it goes the other way.

The day after the penalty, the National Football League doubled down and said not only was it the correct call but that the hit would be included on a teaching tape sent to teams this week along with a penalty from earlier in the same game on Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks for hitting Aaron Rodgers.

"I'd love to be better than I was last week as far as health-wise, but there's some factors that are out of my control".

In some ways, the Packers' performances over the first two weeks give you hope that they might be coming to the DMV a bit vulnerable. He then started and finished the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The Packers' overtime game against the Vikings was played in 80-degree heat with 71 percent humidity. "Take it week by week".

Occasionally, Foster makes a big show with fake hand signals to throw off the Packers quarterback, so Rodgers has to discern whether Foster is trying to play him into a trap or he's actually done an adjustment which Rodgers now has to audible for.

Rodgers completed 30-of-42 passes with one touchdown and no interceptions, while often favoring throws from within the pocket.

We'll just have to see how mobile Rodgers can be after a second week of playing on an MCL sprain. "So, he's obviously in that group from an injury standpoint".
