Aaron Rodgers Injury Update

When asked about Rodgers' injury, head coach Matt LaFleur calmly replied, “I don’t think we have much concern as far as game day.”

Ideally you would like Rodgers to practice and prepare as much as possible, but when you're talking about one of the best quarterbacks of all time, the important part is making sure he's on the field on Sunday. LaFleur seems to think that's exactly what will happen in Week 6.
