UPDATE: Rodgers has sprained knee

Update: 2:17 p.m.

Aaron Rodgers says he has a sprained knee. He told WTMJ's Greg Matzek and other reporters his situation is "day to day," and that he does not need to practice to play on Sunday.

Rodgers feels he has to be able to move around in a small circle in the pass pocket, and if he can do so with relatively little pain, he can play.

Rodgers also said he's not even thinking about extra preparations for DeShone Kizer if necessary.

Original story

The Green Bay Packers' all-world quarterback will be participating in a limited way in practice Wednesday due to his injured knee.

Coach Mike McCarthy told reporters Wednesday morning before practice that Rodgers would take part in "the rehab group," meaning a limited presence at practice.

Rodgers had said Tuesday he is taking recovery "one day at a time" after being hurt Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Rodgers led a comeback from 20 points down after returning to the game, and the Packers beat Chicago 24-23.


WTMJ's Greg Matzek will be at practice, where he will also take part in a scheduled group interview with Rodgers.
