Aaron Rodgers injury status has somehow gotten even more complicated.
The Packers star QB’s status was up in the air until early Sunday morning, when both Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport reported Rodgers will be a go against Minnesota.
While Aaron doesn’t have any ligament damage in his knee, this type of injury ought to take around two months to heal. Despite that fact, Rodgers will put his reputation to the test and try to play through it, proving once and for all that he is a BAD MAN.
Aaron Rodgers has no ligament damage in his knee but his injury could take up to two months to heal, per sources. For now, he will try to play through the pain.

The Packers might not share Rodgers sentiment of trying to play through the pain, especially since Green Bay’s aspirations go far beyond the next two months. If anything were to occur that put Rodgers season in doubt, it would derail any and all chances Mike McCarthy’s squad have at reaching the Super Bowl.
Absent a setback, #Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will start today vs the #Vikings, sources tell me and @TomPelissero. He’s still sore and swollen because of a sprained knee, but sounded like practice Saturday impressed everyone. Should be good to go.

We can only hope that the Packers o-line is able to hold up against a vaunted Vikings defensive line.
Rodgers’ toughness sure as hell cannot be questioned.
Michael John Fjelstad Dudes going to get seriously hurt! You guys invest 134 million in the guy who strains his MCL and you play him the next week against the most relentless defense I’ve seen play in years, good job 👍🏼
