Rodgers concerned knee issue will get worse

Rodgers concerned knee issue will get worse

"It doesn't seem like there's a major setback at this point, so just being smart about it and trying to get ready to play Sunday".

We'll just have to see how mobile Rodgers can be after a second week of playing on an MCL sprain.

Two weeks into the 2018 National Football League season, and we really don't know much about who the Redskins are and what they really are going to be this season. That followed a Sunday night season opener against the Bears.

The Packers kept Rodgers out of practice all of last week until Saturday.

Aaron Rodgers didn't look like he was too bothered by his iffy knee this past week against the Vikings. Rodgers hit eight different receivers for 281 and a TD.

It's not typical for the Packers to settle for field goals on five different drives.

MCL sprains can be a pretty serious injury, and depending on the next few weeks it could grow into a truly lingering issue for Rodgers for a majority of the season.

"So, what we want to get done with them and how we practice them tomorrow will be based off the information that we go through tonight as a staff".

McCarthy altered his usual practice schedule in advance of Sunday's game at Washington.

Prediction: I expect the Packers to be similarly effective this week as they were against Minnesota.

Bonus Prediction: I expect this to feel more like a home game for the Packers than for the Redskins. That may not be enough to help Packers fans rest easy.
