Harrison Smith: Aaron Rodgers 'can put the ball wherever he wants'


Green Bay returned to the practice field on Wednesday, though Rodgers did not participate and stayed at Lambeau Field to rehab.

As you can imagine, the stadium went absolutely wild, especially after Aaron Rodgers came back after he suffered a knee injury.

The Packers are slated to host the Vikings at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.

It'll be interesting to see how the Vikings play Rodgers.

"Haven't even thought about that", Rodgers said when asked if he had confidence in Kizer if the backup needed to start.

At the time, Florence was a Category 3 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale (which classifies hurricanes by strength on a scale of 1 to 5).

If the soreness keeps Rodgers out of practice for the rest of the week, that doesn't necessarily mean he won't play against the Vikings. "He'll be given the whole week to get ready".

Packers coach Mike McCarthy echoed his quarterback's "one day at a time" sentiment during his own press conference on Wednesday.

"Obviously, I've dealt with foot injuries, calf injuries, hamstrings - lower extremities - and played with it, so hopefully I'll be able to be back out there Sunday", Rodgers said.

A win for Chicago in week one against the Packers, especially after recently acquiring Khalil Mack, would have been a huge confidence boost for the Bears. He said his knee is still sore, but that it's improving every day.
