    Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers reacts after throwing a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb during the second half of an NFL football game against the Chicago Bears Sunday, Sept. 9, 2018, in Green Bay, Wis.

    After torching the Chicago Bears in an epic comeback victory, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says that he’s dealing with a sprained left knee as he prepares for his next game.

    Rodgers, who sustained the injury in the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Bears, has been working with reserve players in practice this week, but said earlier in the week that he expects to play against the Minnesota Vikings.

    Head coach Mike McCarthy is playing things cautiously with his star quarterback, who was carted off the field against Chicago. He came back into the game and threw three touchdown passes to lead his team to an epic comeback victory, but McCarthy won’t confirm whether his quarterback will be under center Sunday.

    “This is no layup,” he said. “That’s why it’s a day to day situation.”

    Rodgers did not practice Wednesday, according to the team, and neither did star wide receiver Davante Adams, who is dealing with a shoulder injury.
