Aaron Rodgers QB GB 24 Days
Coach Mike McCarthy relayed that Rodgers (hamstring) was able to participate fully in Monday's workout.
We'll have to see if Rodgers is listed on Wednesday's injury report, but coming off the Packers' Week 9 bye, the quarterback appears fine in advance of Sunday's game against the Bears.

Rodgers (hamstring) is not expected to have any lingering issues after the team's Week 9 bye, ESPN reports. "So far, so good I would say is how we're looking at it," coach Mike McCarthy said.
Rodgers tweaked his hamstring during Sunday night's loss to the Saints. While he did not come out of the game, Rodgers' mobility was clearly limited and he spent most of the second half working out of the shotgun. Heading into the bye week, Rodgers will continue to be evaluated, but McCarthy said he believes the quarterback will not be required to remain in Green Bay for treatment. "Our medical policy [for remaining in Green Bay during the bye] is really based off of evaluation, finishing the game," McCarthy said. "So they're very confident where Aaron is today."

Rodgers suffered a hamstring injury during Sunday night's loss to the Saints, but is not expected to miss time because of the ailment, NFL.com reports.
Rodgers appeared to tweak his hamstring on a third quarter scramble and was clearly favoring his left leg following the incident. Nonetheless, Rodgers remained in the game and even managed a 14-yard touchdown scamper. With the Packers now entering their bye week, Rodgers will gain a timely week of rest, before facing the Bears in Week 10.

Rodgers completed 28-of-39 passes for 418 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions in Sunday's 44-23 loss to the Saints. He added two carries for 21 yards and a rushing touchdown, but he appeared to hurt his leg on the first of those carries.
Rodgers appeared to be headed for a massive game when he found Randall Cobb for a 70-yard touchdown on the Packers' opening possession. Instead, the Packers scored points on all four of their first-half drives, but were held to three field goals after the lone touchdown. Green Bay continued to move the ball in the second half, only Rodgers had a pair of deflected passes picked off in Saints' territory. While not entirely free of blame, Rodgers didn't get much help from his intended receiver on either play. The first interception notably came just three plays after Rodgers appeared to injure his leg on a scramble, and while he remained in the contest until garbage time, he was clearly favoring the leg. He even looked a bit injured on his 14-yard touchdown scramble in the fourth quarter, and was then replaced by Matt Flynn for the meaningless final two drives. The apparent injury at least comes at a convenient time for owners, as the Packers have a Week 9 bye, followed by an excellent matchup with the leaky Chicago defense.

Rodgers completed 19 of 22 passes for 255 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's win over the Panthers. He added an additional 21 rushing yards on three carries.
Rodgers is operating on a higher level than almost anyone else in the league right now, throwing for 13 touchdowns and no interceptions in his last four games. His yardage totals have been a bit lower than expected this year (only two games over 300), but recently the depressed yardage numbers have been a result of big first-half leads that have reduced the need to pass after halftime. Rodgers and the Packers get the benefit of playing in a dome next week against a struggling Saints team that came into Week 7 ranked 25th in the league against the pass. Look out.

Rodgers was 24-of-42 passing for 264 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 27-24 victory over Miami.
The Packers struggled to get things going in the first half (just one first-half drive covered more than 31 yards), but Rodgers was masterful after halftime, especially on the 11-play, 60-yard march that ended in a game-winning touchdown pass to Andrew Quarless. He now has 14 touchdown passes in his last five games and squares off next week against a Panthers secondary that has surrendered multiple touchdown passes in four straight weeks.

Rodgers completed 12-of-17 passes for 156 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's 42-10 win over the Vikings. He did not play in the fourth quarter.
It was an odd night for the Green Bay offense, as seemingly every drive ended with either a touchdown or three-and-out. Rodgers completed an eight-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb in the first quarter, then added a 66-yard scoring strike to Jordy Nelson just minutes later, followed by an 11-yard touchdown to No. 3 receiver Davante Adams in the second quarter.. The Packers didn't need much else out of their superstar quarterback, as Rodgers' counterpart Christian Ponder couldn't get anything going for the Vikings. Following Thursday's anomaly, Rodgers gets a tough Week 6 road matchup against the Dolphins. Owners can use him with confidence, as volume was the only real problem Thursday.

Rodgers completed 22-of-28 passes for 302 yards and four touchdowns Sunday against the Bears.
Rodgers was absolutely dominant Sunday and needed very few weapons to be so, completing passes to only five different receivers, with Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb the only two with more than two catches. They essentially split the work, as Cobb finished with seven catches on nine targets for 113 yards and two touchdowns, while Nelson had 10 catches on 12 targets for 108 yards and two scores of his own. Rodgers has flip-flopped good and bad games this season, struggling in Weeks 1 and 3 and dominating in Weeks 2 and 4, though he has thrown eight touchdowns with zero interceptions in his last three games. Up next is a Vikings defense that allowed 298 yards and three touchdowns to Matt Ryan in Week 4.

Rodgers will face his first game in the division next week, traveling to Detroit.
