Aaron Rodgers continues to play through the knee injury he suffered in the Week 1 win over the Chicago Bears. The Green Bay Packers' quarterback played at less than 100 percent against the Minnesota Vikings last week and he'll look to do the same against the Washington Redskins today.

Rodgers has officially been listed as active for this afternoon's contest. It's set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T.

"Aaron Rodgers (knee) was listed as questionable once again, but he is expected to play in a similar capacity as he did last week, source said," Ian Rapoport tweeted.

Rodgers looks good to go today.

The weather in Washington, D.C. today could provide for a questionable environment for Rodgers and that knee, though. It's been raining hard this morning and FedEx Field has had issues with its playing surface before.

Washington Post reporter Mark Maske wonders if the Packers will have any second thoughts about playing Rodgers and his not-100 percent knee on a questionable surface. "Wet day at FedEx Field. Field conditions here have been a persistent issue in the past. Have to wonder if the Packers are (or should be) having any second thoughts at all about allowing Aaron Rodgers to play," he writes.

Good luck telling Rodgers to sit, though.

The Packers and the Redskins are set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. The game will be on FOX.
