The Green Bay Packers are sweating over the injury to star quarterback Aaron Rodgers after he hurt his knee during their comeback win over the Chicago Bears on the opening weekend of the new NFL season.

Rodgers picked up the injury in the first-half, but returned in the third quarter to inspire a historic comeback to earn a 24-23 win for the Packers, who were 20-0 down at one point in the third quarter.

In the immediate aftermath of the game, the quarterback confirmed he will play the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. However, the knee injury he picked seemed to inflame during the week which has seen him miss practice.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy was doubtful when asked about the chances of Rodgers making the clash at the weekend, but admitted they will take it day-by-day and make a decision on a date closer to the game.

"I know Aaron wants to play and is always driven to play, but that's all I have for right now," McCarthy added. "He's sore. He's walking around in a pair of shorts and tennis shoes and socks, if that helps you with your story. I don't know what else to tell you."

Rodgers missed practice Wednesday, but revealed if he is given the all clear he can still play Sunday as practice was not a key concern at the moment. The quarterback is keen to play, but admitted he has to take it one day at a time and the decision could be made as late as Sunday.

"I want to play obviously," Rodgers said Wednesday, as per ESPN. "You're just taking it one day at a time. See how it feels tomorrow and see how it feels Friday, Saturday and then hopefully ready to go Sunday."

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer seems to be the most optimistic person about Rodgers’ condition after he said he has no doubt the quarterback will be fit enough to face his team in the second game of the season.

"He walks on water, so I'm sure he's going to play," Zimmer said via a conference call with reporters earlier this week.

However, Rodgers is not the only injury concern that is worrying the Packers going into the game against the Vikings. According to ESPN, receiver Davante Adams is also a doubt after picking up a shoulder injury during the win over the Bears last weekend putting another dent in the Packers’ offensive line.

He landed on his shoulder at the end of his 51-year catch and run in the fourth quarter. And even though he finished the game against the Bears, the injury reportedly got gradually worse in the days after the game.
