Rodgers says he has a sprained knee

Green Bay (WBAY) – It’s the $134 million question: Will Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers play this Sunday against the Vikings?

Rodgers continues to nurse a knee injury he suffered during last Sunday’s game against the Bears.

Head Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers was working with the rehab group Wednesday. The coach said the team will take it day-by-day with his MVP QB.

“He’s always responded. He puts a lot of extra time in. We’ll see what tomorrow brings,” McCarthy said during his Wednesday news conference.

Rodgers spoke with reporters Wednesday and called his injury a sprained knee. He also denied taking pain medications on Sunday night. “There was a lot of adrenaline,” Rodgers said.

We all know how Rodgers played with one healthy leg in the second half of the Bears game. He helped his team mount a 20-point comeback to win 24-23.

The Packers host the Vikings at Lambeau Field Sunday at noon.

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is preparing to face Aaron Rodgers. “Yeah. He walks on water so I’m sure he’s going to play,” Zimmer said Wednesday.
