The Packers quarterback gave a blunt one-word answer when he was asked if he needed to practice this week in order to play. "We'll give him the whole week to get ready".

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

Packers coach Mike McCarthy echoed his quarterback's "one day at a time" sentiment during his own press conference on Wednesday. "A lot of adrenaline Sunday night and obviously, it's pretty sore the last three days". "But we'll see how that goes", McCarthy said. He has termed his injury a sprained knee.

Vikings safety Harrison Smith, fresh off an NFC North Player of the Week award, knows just how hard it is going up against Rodgers.

UK calls Security Council talks on poison case
Russia's top security officials routinely speak of active attempts by the CIA and other Western agencies to recruit Russians. As a result, Basu said, police weren't yet ready to bring charges in the second poisoning.

Rodgers avoided questions about his knee injury on Tuesday and the team has still not made a decision on whether he'll play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, despite Rodgers saying Sunday after the Bears game he would play.

Rodgers, who missed nine games last season because of the broken collarbone, recently signed a record four-year, $134 million extension with $100 million in guarantees.

"We know he's playing", Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said. He said he would try to return to practice on Thursday and was optimistic about playing Sunday. He said feel "a little better every day".
