Rodgers confirmed Wednesday that his injured left knee could get worse as the season goes on, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "Yeah, obviously that's a concern," Rodgers said Wednesday. "Hopefully it goes the other way though."
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers donned a bulky knee brace during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Vikings, playing all 77 offensive snaps. The workload followed no practice reps until Saturday's session, which gave the Packers confidence he'd be able to handle the punishment on game day. On Wednesday's estimated injury report, Rodgers was listed as a non-participant, according to Michael Cohen of The Athletic. Rodgers may follow a similar practice regimen to Week 2, focusing on rehab and meetings rather than practice with the hope that prep leaves him ready for Sunday's contest at Washington.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Wednesday that he's still viewing Rodgers (knee) as day-to-day ahead of the team's Week 3 matchup with the Redskins, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
After coming out of the Week 1 win over the Bears with a deep bone bruise in his left knee along with a sprained MCL, Rodgers didn't log any practice time until Saturday of last week. That was ultimately enough for Rodgers to garner an active status Sunday, with the signal-caller finishing that contest with 30 completions on 42 attempts for 281 yards and a touchdown. Rodgers performed effectively for the most part and didn't appear to suffer any setbacks with his knee in the contest, though he didn't showcase much mobility in the pocket or as a scrambler, netting just eight yards on three carries. He'll likely have his practice reps managed carefully again and for the next several weeks while he recovers from the injury, but the expectation is that Rodgers will be under center again in Week 3.

Coach Mike McCarthy termed Rodgers "sore" after Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Vikings, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "That's to be expected," McCarthy said. "But he's a warrior, what he gave us yesterday was outstanding. I don't have a read on whether he's better this week than last week."
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers played through the pain and with a bulky brace on his left knee Sunday, one week removed from the hit that knocked him out of the season opener for a quarter and raised the specter of a potential absence. He nonetheless pushed through, completing 30 of 42 passes for 281 yards and one touchdown against a tough defense. Expect Rodgers' practice reps to be monitored closely this week as he prepares for Sunday's visit to Washington.

Rodgers (knee) completed 30 of 42 pass attempts for 281 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 29-all tie with the Vikings. He also rushed three times for eight yards.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers played with a brace on his left knee after last week's injury and his limited mobility clearly limited the offensive playbook in some regards. Despite his efficient 71 percent completion rate, he averaged just 6.7 yards per attempt and managed just one play longer than 22 yards. Still, Rodgers' otherworldly arm and knowledge of the playbook allowed the Pack to move the ball against an elite defensive opponent, and the fact that he was well enough to actually run the ball on three occasions is a positive sign. He should be limited physically for the foreseeable future, but barring a setback in practice this week he should be ready to take on the Redskins next weekend in what should be a more favorable matchup.

Rodgers is playing through both a deep bone bruise and a sprained MCL and will play with a knee brace on his left knee, Fox's Jay Glazer reports.
EDGE Analysis
Glazer emphasized that the injuries are worse than initially disclosed by the Packers, that they will likely linger and a setback with a good hit is possible.

Rodgers (knee) is active for Sunday's game versus the Vikings, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports.
EDGE Analysis
In the wake of his season-opening left knee injury, Rodgers was a member of the rehab group all week and didn't take the practice field until Saturday. During said session, though, he impressed the team enough to give him the all clear to play through what Adam Schefter of ESPN called a "compression injury from blunt force while beat." Expect Rodgers' mobility to be compromised, which likely means the Packers will employ a quick-strike game plan to keep him out of harm's way.

Rodgers, who is listed as questionable but is expected to start Sunday against the Vikings barring a setback, isn't dealing with any ligament damage to his left knee, but could require up to two months to fully heal, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. "He has a pretty unusual injury that would keep most people out awhile," a source told Schefter.
EDGE Analysis
According to Schefter, Rodgers' knee issue is characterized as a "compression injury from blunt force while bent," which will likely make mobility an issue for the signal-caller for the next few weeks if he continues to play through the pain. While Rodgers appeared to assuage some concern about his health by taking part in Saturday's walk-through practice, the source said "there will certainly be a short leash" in the event the quarterback aggravates the injury in Sunday's contest. Even at less than 100 percent, Rodgers showed in the Week 1 comeback win over the Bears just how effective he can still be, so the Packers will likely allow him to continue playing so long as the pain is manageable.

Barring a setback, Rodgers (knee) will start at quarterback Sunday against Minnesota, sources tell Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers was already trending in the right direction since he was able to participate in Saturday's practice. Still, despite this report and his practice participation, fantasy owners will need to confirm his status in pregame warmups.

Rodgers (knee) was a participant at Saturday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
It was the first practices session Rodgers was able to participate in since spraining his knee in last week's season opening win over the Bears. While his involvement is certainly encouraging, it does not guarantee he will be able to suit up for Sunday's matchup with the Vikings. Still, he appears to be trending in the right direction at this point.

Rodgers (knee) didn't practice Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Minnesota, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers didn't practice in any capacity this week, but both he and coach Mike McCarthy said the quarterback's knee has been feeling better. This could come down to a game-time decision ahead of Sunday's 1 PM ET kickoff, with DeShone Kizer expected to start if Rodgers is ultimately ruled out.
