Packers WR Davante Adams misses practice with shoulder injury

Packers taking it day by day with Aaron Rodgers

Rodgers is working his way back from a knee injury that sidelined him for a portion to the team's Sunday Night win over the Chicago Bears.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy didn't go that far when he spoke to reporters on Monday and one consideration will certainly be how well Rodgers can protect himself against Minnesota defenders.

Vikings safety Harrison Smith, fresh off an NFC North Player of the Week award, knows just how hard it is going up against Rodgers. Although the knee injury doesn't seem like it will keep out Rodgers for very long, if at all, he still has yet to practice this week. The Packers quarterback gave a blunt one-word answer when he was asked if he needed to practice this week in order to play.

Rodgers himself seemed confident he would be able to beat the injury, and said it would take something a lot more serious to keep him off the field.

On a conference call with the Green Bay media, to questions about Rodgers' status he responded, "He walks on water so I'm sure he's gonna play".

"He'll be in the rehab group today", McCarthy added.

"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said. "So, we'll see what tomorrow brings".

Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is preparing to face Aaron Rodgers.
