Coach McCarthy on Rodgers’ recovery from knee injury


Speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said: "Obviously there's the hope of playing".

Rodgers guaranteed he wouldn't miss any time after hurting his leg Sunday, but Green Bay is keen on being cautious with the injury.

Rodgers guaranteed he wouldn't miss any time, but the Packers are keen on being cautious with the injury.

The start of the Bears, the play of Aaron Rodgers, and the Packers' eventual victory made for an epic, and for some heartbreaking, opening contest on Sunday Night Football.

"He's always responded. We'll see what tomorrow brings".

The NFL superstar threw for 212 yards and three touchdowns - including a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb with less than two minutes on the clock.

Minnesota has not yet played in the North, but they know this one is huge considering the Packers will be their primary opponent during their attempt at back-to-back division titles.

"It was going to have to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half (against Bears)".

"That process went on throughout the second quarter (and) into halftime".

"I didn't know if he could come back from that", Packers right tackle Bryan Bulaga said after that game.

The injury against the Eagles introduced the world to the now-famous blue tent, where Rodgers hid while receiving treatment. The combination of wet, snowy field and the fear that it might worsen his injury forced Rodgers into a conservative mode.

Rodgers said he is feeling "a little better every day", but is "pretty sore". "Had decent movement and didn't do anything to create a major setback".

Rodgers was noticeably hobbled but got some big-time assistance from the running game, which totaled a season-high 226 yards.

"It's super painful, and you've just got to suck it up and play through it", Rodgers said at his locker. Many speculated that Rodgers was on pain medication.
