On Saturday, the Green Bay Packers got some good news in their final practice before they take the field Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who sprained his left knee last Sunday against the Chicago Bears, was able to participate in practice on Saturday, according to multiple media reports. This is a good sign for his availability on Sunday, but it by no means makes it a certainty.
In fact, Rodgers remains questionable on the Packers’ injury report. Often, the Packers will update their report following the results of Saturday’s practice, but they made no changes to Friday’s report as a result of Rodgers practicing.
Ultimately, it appears that the main question for Rodgers’ availability will be how his knee responds on Sunday morning to his workload on Saturday. Although signs point to him playing, there remains a chance that it reacts negatively and becomes a significant problem on game day. As a result, Packers fans should keep a close eye out for the list of gameday inactives, which typically are released about 90 minutes prior to kickoff. Hopefully for Green Bay, there is minimal swelling in that knee and he is able to take the field.
So far, there have been no updates on the status of the Packers’ other two questionable players, wide receiver Davante Adams and linebacker Oren Burks. Both players have shoulder injuries; Adams injured his shoulder in the Bears game but played through it, while Burks has been out since suffering his injury in warmups before the Packers’ third preseason game.
