Packers QB Rodgers to miss second practice

Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

"So I'm sure he's going to play".

Backup DeShone Kizer, who was set to finish Sunday night's game before the coaching staff found out near the end of halftime that Rodgers was cleared to play, will get some extra time to work with the starters in case he's needed this week.

According to NFL Media, Rodgers is not expected to practice again Thursday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said his quarterback will rehab rather than practice as the team continues to monitor his "day-to-day" status and determine his availability for their home opener.

McCarthy said receiver Davante Adams (shoulder) and linebacker Oren Burks (shoulder) will be "limited" participants in Thursday's padded practice.

You can bet the Vikings are expecting Rodgers.

Many more were left to wonder where they might be safe if days of torrential rains unleash floods from the mountains to the sea. The US Navy said it was sending almost 30 ships from coastal Virginia out of port to ride out the storm.

Aaron Rodgers called his injury a "sprained knee". He completed 20 of 30 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns against the Bears.

Talking to reporters after Wednesday's practice, Kizer agreed a week like this is valuable for his development as a 22-year-old quarterback and said he'll be prepared for whatever role awaits him against the Vikings. Rodgers has reportedly not thought about not playing. He said feel "a little better every day".

The latter makes more sense if we're being honest.

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. Even if Rodgers played, holding the Vikings at a pick wouldn't be that big a problem - they could still win the game.

Rodgers' status will be one to monitor once we get closer to Sunday's game.
