QB misses practice Thursday, Vegas drops a concerning line

QB misses practice Thursday, Vegas drops a concerning line

The Vikings are fully expecting quarterback Aaron Rodgers to suit up for the Packers in Week 2 after spraining his knee in Week 1 against the Bears.

Rodgers said, immediately following the game, that he was definitely going to play against Minnesota.

Although Rodgers was adamant about playing this Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, his coach is saying otherwise.

Even if he doesn't practice this week, Rodgers could still play.

"He's always responded, puts a lot of extra time in", McCarthy said. He has termed his injury a sprained knee.

McCarthy confirmed Rodgers will continue to work in the rehab group on Thursday, adding the two-time MVP quarterback is "going to try to do more today than yesterday". He completed 20 of 30 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns against the Bears.

Unlike an actual line you can bet on, the SuperContest lines are locked in on Wednesday and then don't move again for the rest of the week. Coach McCarthy has said #12 will be given the entire week to rehab and prepare for the Vikings. He said his knee is still sore, but that it's improving every day.

The latter makes more sense if we're being honest.

"Yeah", Zimmer said on a conference call with Green Bay media, "he walks on water, so I'm pretty sure he's gonna play".

If Rodgers does play, it would be his first game against the Vikings since the two-time MVP broke his right collarbone following a hit from Minnesota linebacker Anthony Barr on October 15. Will the Packers risk putting Rodgers out there for the whole game knowing he could get hurt?

"We know he's playing", Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said.
