Rodgers (knee) completed 27 of 44 passes for 265 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions in the Packers' 31-17 loss to the Redskins on Sunday. He also rushed twice for 13 yards. Already significantly limited by his sprained left MCL coming in, Rodgers also appeared to hurt his right hamstring at one point in the contest, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. However, the perennial Pro Bowler subsequently denied having suffered any further injury, according to Demovsky. Rodgers did look significantly hampered overall any time he tried to move around, but as was the case in a Week 2 tie with the Vikings, he managed to gut it out through four quarters and still turn in a solid fantasy line. There are no signs Rodgers plans on taking any time off to heal, so he'll be in play once again in a Week 4 matchup against the Bills at Lambeau Field.
Rodgers (knee) is active for Sunday's game at Washington, Jason Wahlers of the Packers' official site reports. Although the Packers never revealed whether Rodgers took part in Saturday's session, he likely did just that for the second week in a row. In his first game on a balky left knee Week 2, he compiled 281 yards and one touchdown against one of the NFL's top defenses, the Vikings, albeit with the help of an overtime period. His mobility was clearly hindered, though, and will be tested further in what will be rainy conditions in Landover, Md. this Sunday.
Rodgers (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Washington, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Despite the designation, Rodgers is scheduled to practice Saturday and then play in Sunday's game. He followed the same routine last week, missing practice Wednesday, Thursday and Friday ahead of a 29-29 tie with the Vikings. Rodgers didn't have his usual mobility in the contest, but he still managed to throw for 281 yards and a touchdown while playing every snap. He plans to continue playing through a sprained MCL.
Head coach Mike McCarthy said Friday morning that Rodgers (knee) will practice Saturday, Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The report notes that Rodgers is going through the same routine he did last week, which indicates he will not practice Friday, but will be listed as questionable and likely play Sunday against the Redskins as long as he is able to make it through Saturday's unofficial practice without issue. Fantasy players hoping to include Rodgers in their lineups for Week 3 will want to pay close attention to his status over the next several days.
Rodgers (knee) was held out of practice Thursday, As expected, Rodgers was listed as a non-participant for a second consecutive day, instead rehabbing the MCL sprain and bone bruise in his left knee. Considering his Week 2 performance came on the heels of no practice until Saturday's session, he may merely have to fulfill the same schedule to play in Sunday's game at Washington. Even so, he appears certain to earn a questionable designation for Week 3.
