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.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday morning that Rodgers is "getting better" and that "he feels better than he did at the beginning of the week," Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
McCarthy's comments don't provide any evidence one way or another in regards to Rodgers' availability for Sunday's game against the Vikings, but it is encouraging to hear Rodgers is progressing in the right direction. McCarthy did add that Saturday's practice will be important for Rodgers, so it could be a day or two until his Week 2 status is ultimately decided. More updates regarding Rodgers' status are sure to come leading up to Sunday's kickoff, but for now, he remains day-to-day.

Coach Mike McCarthy called the Week 2 active/inactive decision for Rodgers (knee) "no layup" on Thursday, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "That's why it's a day-to-day situation," McCarthy said.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers gutted out what he termed a "sprained" left knee during the season-opening comeback win against the Bears, and with no practice reps yet this week he remains a huge question mark for Sunday's showdown with the Vikings. Instead, he's focusing on rehabilitation and off-the-field prep while reserve quarterbacks DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle have handled the snaps in practice. Considering his desire to play this weekend, Rodgers seems destined to receive a questionable tag for Week 2, and the decision to let him direct the offense likely will come down to a game-time decision.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers (knee) will be withheld from practice Thursday and instead work with the rehab group, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers opened the Packers' first practice of the week on the rehab field while recovering from a sprained left knee and was listed as a non-participant in Wednesday's practice report. While the quarterback won't be working with the main group for the second straight day, McCarthy indicated he expected Rodgers to increase his activity, which could translate to a limited participation listing on Thursday's report. The Packers remain non-committal to Rodgers suiting up Sunday against the Vikings and may not have a good feel for his status until the weekend arrives.

Rodgers confirmed Wednesday that he's dealing with a sprain in his left knee, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
Unsurprisingly, Rodgers didn't practice Wednesday after his stay on the sideline and locker room during the first half of Sunday's win against the Bears. Prior to the session, coach Mike McCarthy called Rodgers "day-to-day," per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com, and Rodgers himself told Demovsky that he's feeling "a little better every day" following Sunday's hit. There's no telling if he'll be able to sidestep treatment and take part in practice this week, but progressing to the latter would bode well for an appearance Sunday against the Vikings. In the event Rodgers isn't able to suit up, the Packers are prepping DeShone Kizer for his first start with the Packers.
