Although running a No. 1 offense isn't foreign to Kizer after starting 15 games for Cleveland last year, there is a huge benefit in the second-year quarterback getting a chance to run with the Packers' starters regardless of whether he plays Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. "We went with the option of less likely to play", Sherman said in an email. "That's why it's a day-to-day situation".
Rodgers said in his postgame interview Sunday night on NBC that he would play vs. the Vikings, against whom he broke his collarbone previous year.
Aaron Rodgers told the media he has a sprained knee and that it's been "pretty sore the last three days".
The Packers have until Friday to submit their list of players who are injured and will not be playing against the Vikings.
You'll notice that there is no firm commitment on either side, but by reading his body language it seems like the team wants to exercise caution while Rodgers will want to give it a go.
For example, if the line was a pick 'em, and Rodgers was ruled out before Saturday, literally everyone would take the Vikings and not think twice.
Aaron Rodgers is not practicing again today, as the Green Bay Packers' star quarterback continues to recover from his knee injury. If you take the Packers as a pick 'em, you better be confident Rodgers will be out there. No offense to DeShone Kizer.
"We know he's playing", Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said.
The latter makes more sense if we're being honest.
