  • 2018 NFL Power Rankings: Mahomes impresses, Rodgers plays magician

The team has yet to determine if Rodgers will even be able to practice at all this week ahead of their home opener.

Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy says Rodgers will be given the whole week to get ready for the Packers' game on Sunday against the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings.

Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers reacts after throwing a touchdown pass to Randall Cobb #18 during the fourth quarter of a game against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on September 9, 2018 in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

Rodgers said immediately after Green Bay's awesome comeback that he'd play in Week 2 against Minnesota, and the 34-year-old didn't back down from that sentiment Wednesday. "There was a lot of adrenaline", he said, "and (it's) pretty sore the last three days".

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.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee) and safety Josh Jones (ankle) also missed the practice. He'll be in the rehab group [on Wednesday].

"I'm feeling better, a little better, every day - Monday, Tuesday and now today", Rodgers said. "So we'll take it day by day and learn as we go".

"He's always responded, puts a lot of extra time in", McCarthy told reporters.

"When I saw him, you know, come back out I knew he would play, and I'll be honest with you, I didn't go around the house or call people and say: 'Oh this is bad news for Chicago'". "So, we'll see what tomorrow brings".
