Asked at his locker if it was accurate to say his injury was a sprained knee, Rodgers said, "Sure ... say sprained knee".

Despite his heroic comeback in Week 1 against the Chicago Bears, it's unclear whether Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be under center on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Rodgers said in his postgame interview Sunday night on NBC that he would play vs. the Vikings, against whom he broke his collarbone a year ago.

Instead, he did rehab work on the side and extensive exercises with the medical staff inside the stadium. The coach said the team will take it day-by-day with his MVP QB. "We'll see what tomorrow brings".

Their hope is that two Republican senators who support abortion rights could break from their party and vote against him. Senators on both sides of the aisle have acknowledged that Roe could be overturned by the court despite being precedent.

So it's understandable why Zimmer and the Vikings think Rodgers will play. Typically, players need to practice throughout the week in order to be eligible to play on game day. "Anytime a player comes off a game where he's injured, there's the hope of playing".

The general theme from both Rodgers and coach Mike McCarthy as that they're taking the process of his rehabilitation one day at a time. "We'll give him the whole week to get ready".

"So I know what it feels like to play with something like this, and hopefully I'll be at the point where I can (play) on Sunday", Rodgers said. Although the quarterback didn't participate in practice, Rodgers did take some time to answer questions about his left knee injury, which he characterized as a sprain.

If the soreness keeps Rodgers out of practice for the rest of the week, that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play against the Vikings.
