Aaron Rodgers back practicing for Green Bay Packers - still questionable vs Vikings

Ever since he picked up a knee injury during the win against the Chicago Bears last Sunday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has not practiced at all for the Green Bay Packers in preparation for their Week Two game.

Rodgers hadn't taken part in a single Packers practice this week ahead of the team's game against another NFC North rival, the Minnesota Vikings. As a result, he was listed as questionable for the game on Friday.

Today, however, on the final day of Green Bay's practice before Sunday's game, their fanbase was greeted with some good news, but there's a catch to the report.

According to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Rodgers took part in Packers practice today, improving the chances that he plays in tomorrow's game against the Vikings.

However, what didn't change was his status for the game, as Pelissero added that the quarterback is still listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

The NFL Network reporter further stated that while this is a step in the right direction for Rodgers, and that he has progressed throughout the week, he is still dealing 'with swelling and soreness in the knee.'

So while practicing today is a significant step for the quarterback towards playing again, it isn't a guarantee that he will be out there on the field tomorrow against Minnesota.

Rodgers will reportedly be evaluated in the morning to see how his knee responds and if it's too much of a risk for the rest of the season to play him on the day he won't play.

However, you would think for such an important divisional matchup against the Vikings which could shape how the NFC North looks by the end of the season, the Packers would only sideline Rodgers in extreme circumstances.

Rodgers finished Sunday night's win vs the Bears after completing 20-of-30 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns after initially leaving the game with a knee injury.
