Aaron Rodgers, Packers taking knee injury 'day by day'

Rodgers injured the knee during the second quarter of Green Bay's 24-23 win over the Bears in Week 1, a game where he engineered a 20-point comeback in the second half.

"I mean every practice is important", receiver Davante Adams said. Whether it's more significant is uncertain.

Rodgers avoided questions about his knee injury on Tuesday and the team has still not made a decision on whether he'll play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, despite Rodgers saying Sunday after the Bears game he would play. There were a couple throws in which Rodgers said he got a "jolt" of pain after putting weight on his left leg. Barring any setbacks throughout the week, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which Rodgers doesn't get the start on Sunday.

While speaking to reporters ahead of Wednesday's workout, 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 Week 2. "We'll see what tomorrow brings".

"Obviously there's hope of him playing", McCarthy said.

Hurricane Florence Tracker: Warnings Sent Out for North, South Carolina
Officials say Hurricane Florence is likely to make landfall in southeastern North Carolina near the SC border. So we could have two landfalls - one around Wilmington and then one near Myrtle Beach or even south of there.

The belief is that Rodgers' mobility could be limited for as long as a month.

It's in a similar fashion to the calf injury Rodgers had down the stretch of the 2014 season.

"All I'm going to say on that is, he's on the right track", inside linebackers coach Glenn Pires said.

Wearing a brace could be an option, depending on how the quarterback feels later in the week.
