Aaron Rodgers has finally opened up about the knee injury he suffered in Week 1 of the 2018 NFL regular season. The Green Bay Packers' quarterback's status for this weekend's game has been updated, too.

Rodgers, who suffered a knee injury in the first half of the comeback win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, says he suffered a knee sprain. His status for this weekend's game is still up in the air.

The Packers' quarterback has not been practicing this week. His knee remains a little sore.


Aaron Rodgers called his injury a "sprained knee." He said he didn't take any pain medications on Sunday night because he doesn't like them. "There was a lot of adrenaline," he said, "and (it's) pretty sore the last three days." He said feel "a little better every day." He said he did not practice at all today and stayed at the stadium for treatment.

Packers reporter Rob Demovsky had the full update on Rodgers:

Rodgers is reportedly maintaining the idea of taking this injury one day at a time. However, while he's yet to confirm his status for Sunday, the idea of not playing hasn't crossed his mind. "He echoed McCarthy by saying it’s one day at a time. However, the idea of not playing this weekend hasn’t crossed his mind," tweeted Michael Cohen.

Rodgers and the Packers are set to host the Vikings on Sunday.
