  • Ian Rapoport reports that Miller is out this week and is considered week-to-week moving forward.


Packers QB Aaron Rodgers took part in Thursday’s practice on a limited basis, but he admits it’s been difficult to be sidelined during the week due to his knee injury.

“I do love to compete,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “There’s no doubt about it. It is difficult and different for me to not be out there. I’m one who always loves being out there because you’re not just competing but you’re working on things with the guys and working on the game plan, especially on days like Wednesday and Thursday. So that’s been obviously a struggle for me.
