Packers coach Mike McCarthy was restrained in his expectations but said with four more days to prepare and knowing Rodgers, he's not ruling anything out. "So, we'll see what tomorrow brings". 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.
He sacked Packers quarterback DeShone Kizer on his first play in the National Football League, and the spotlight at Lambeau Field didn't look to bright for him. If he can't go, the Packers would turn to backup DeShone Kizer, who accounted for two turnovers after coming in when Rodgers got hurt in the second quarter last week against the Bears.
So it's understandable why Zimmer and the Vikings think Rodgers will play. He helped his team mount a 20-point comeback to win 24-23.

It's not a setback, McCarthy said, and Rodgers' injury is still being dealt with on a day-by-day basis.
"I think anytime a player comes off a game where he's injured, obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy added.
"I'm feeling better, a little better, every day - Monday, Tuesday and now today", Rodgers said.
