Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

"There was a lot of adrenaline", said Rodgers, who guided the Packers to a 24-23 victory over the Bears on Sunday night after returning from the knee injury in the second half.

Due to the injury, the Packers have made a decision to play it safe this week with Rodgers, who was held out of practice on Wednesday so that he could rehab.

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. Asked at his locker if it was accurate to say his injury was a sprained knee, Rodgers said, "Sure. say sprained knee". "He'll be given the whole week to get ready".

Aaron Rodgers returns to lead Pack to win against Bears
Next week, the Bears will host the Seahawks on Monday Night Football while the Packers will welcome the Vikings to Lambeau Field. While Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers surprised nearly everyone by coming out on the sideline for the second half.

Mostly, we just want to see him pull of some more QB wizardry this season.

Rodgers said after the game he would undergo more tests, though he planned to play against Minnesota. Knowing coach Mike Zimmer, I'd expect plenty of pressure on Rodgers. "But we'll see how that goes", McCarthy said.

Rodgers echoed McCarthy on taking it on a day by day basis and revealed he didn't take pain medications Sunday night. The 14-year veteran said he does not need to practice to play. Based on his comments from Wednesday, the Vikings coach sounds pretty confident that Green Bay's star player will be on the field.
