Packers QB Aaron Rodgers admitted that there’s concern playing through his knee injury could lead to further damage.

“Yeah, obviously that’s a concern,” Rodgers said, via “Hopefully it goes the other way though.”

According to Rodgers, his knee “obviously it won’t be 100 percent, so I’ll just adjust accordingly to how I’m feeling and try to get through.”

“It just depends on how the week goes with the rehab and the recovery,” Rodgers said. “Obviously, I’d love to be better than I was last week as far as health-wise but there’s some factors that are out of my control.”

  • Packers HC Mike McCarthy said of CB Kevin King‘s groin injury: “I think he’s going to be hard pressed to play this week.” McCarthy added that they’re hoping King‘s recovery timeline is short term. (Ryan Wood)
