Rodgers (knee) participated in Wednesday's padded practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
As the Packers emerged from their bye week Tuesday, Rodgers upheld his standard of rehabilitation of his left knee with an expectation that he would practice Wednesday, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Rodgers proceeded to do just that, and even was donning a smaller knee brace than normal, per Silverstein. While his level of participation Wednesday is unknown, Rodgers seems to be as healthy as he's been since injuring the knee Week 1.

Rodgers (knee) said he's hopeful to practice in pads Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
EDGE Analysis
The Packers reconvened for practice Tuesday following their bye week, with Rodgers opening the week with the rehab group while he continues to nurse an MCL sprain in his left knee. Despite his lack of activity with the main group, Rodgers' health seems to be improving, as he said he didn't require an MRI during the break in the Packers' schedule and noted that he's hopeful he'll soon ditch the brace he required in the team's Week 6 win over the 49ers, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports. It's still worth tracking how the Packers list Rodgers' practice participation Wednesday through Friday, but there doesn't seem to be any concern about him carrying an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Rams.

Rodgers wasn't seen on the field during the early portion of Tuesday's practice, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
EDGE Analysis
Coming off a bye week, the Packers were practicing in full pads Tuesday, so it's expected that Wednesday's session will be more of a walk-through session. Green Bay isn't required to release its initial practice report for Week 8 before Wednesday, so it won't be known until that time whether Rodgers' lingering left knee injury renders him a limited or non-participant. Even if Rodgers' practice involvement remains spotty throughout the next few days, there's little doubt that he'll be ready to play Sunday against the Rams, especially with the benefit of 12 days of rest in between games.

Rodgers said after Monday's victory over the 49ers that he is hoping to shed his knee brace during the Packers' bye week, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers will certainly benefit from the Packers' off week, but whether or not he will get rid of the brace will depend on just how much improvement his knee shows in the coming days. Rodgers has still been effective and somewhat mobile despite his injury -- he picked up 34 yards on three runs Monday -- but his play could get even better as he gets back, or at least close, to 100 percent.

Rodgers (knee) is officially absent from the Packers' injury report for Monday's matchup with the 49ers, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
There was originally concern for Rodgers' status after he admitted to suffering a minor setback with his MCL sprain in last week's lost to the Lions. However, he logged a full session at Friday's practice, so this news is relatively unsurprising. Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) are both considered game-time decisions, so Rodgers could once again be short-handed at receiver.

Rodgers (knee) was a full participant in Friday's practice.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers suffered a minor setback with his MCL sprain during last week's loss to the Lions and subsequently was held out from Thursday's practice. His return to full participation Friday suggests he should be fine to face the 49ers on Monday, with a chance to get Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) back in the lineup. Cobb and Allison were limited participants Thursday and Friday.

Head coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers (knee) will practice Friday, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
McCarthy did not say how involved Rodgers will be Friday, but it appears he will get more work in than he did Thursday, when he was listed as a non-participant.

Rodgers (knee) was listed as a non-participant at Thursday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers appears to have reverted to his pre-Week 5 practice regimen, when he was in the rehab group for the first and third practices, participated in a full-pads session in between them, and took part in the final jog-through before game day. The preceding is the result of what Rodgers called a setback with his left knee. "I hope not," Rodgers told Demovsky of returning to the bulkier brace used from Weeks 2 through 4. "The goal would be to wear the same [smaller] brace I wore last week, but I have a lot of faith in our training staff and we're going to [use] the brace we feel is most safe and allowing me to do exactly what I'm able to do on Monday." Assuming he's out there Monday against the 49ers, Rodgers may have the services of his No. 2 and 3 wide receivers. Both Randall Cobb (hamstring) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring) logged limited practices Thursday, with the latter of the two clearing the concussion protocol.

Rodgers (knee) will work in the rehab group with the Packers' other injured players Thursday and is expected to be listed as a non-participant on the team's first practice report of the week, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
The fact that Rodgers is being withheld from the Packers' first practice of the week isn't anything new, as his reps have been restricted since he sustained a deep bone bruise and sprained MCL in his left knee in the season-opening win over the Bears. Rodgers hasn't missed any game action because of the injury, but he relayed after Sunday's loss to the Lions that his knee is a "little more sore" than it had been over the past couple of weeks. With that in mind, it wouldn't be surprising if Rodgers was a limited or non-participant in Friday's practice, though more concern about his status for Monday's game against the 49ers would arise if he isn't able to join the main group for Saturday's session.

Rodgers said after Sunday's loss to the Lions that his knee is "a little more sore today than the last couple of weeks," Zachary Jacobson of KLGR 1490 AM reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers was already dealing with a sore knee coming into Sunday's game, but the situation was made worse after the quarterback was awkwardly dragged down on a first-quarter scramble. Rodgers was seen adjusting his knee brace on multiple occasions thereafter trying to get comfortable. Green Bay conveniently has an extra day of rest this coming week since the team's Week 6 matchup with the 49ers isn't until Monday, Oct. 15, but don't be surprised if Rodgers isn't allowed to practice in a full capacity in any of the practices leading up to the game.
