With the third weekend of the NFL regular season almost here, the Packers are preparing for their game against the Redskins. Although Green Bay’s offense looked sharp last week, there are still slight concerns about Aaron Rodgers’ health.
Rodgers is still dealing with his knee injury from Week 1. Despite not being fully healthy, he had 281 passing yards and a touchdown against the Vikings.
According to NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport, Rodgers is listed as questionable for this week, but he should be ready to play on Sunday.

Even though Rodgers hasn’t participated in practice yet, the expectation is that he’ll practice tomorrow.
Obviously, the Packers want to keep Rodgers healthy for the entire season. However, they also can’t afford to lose ground in the NFC North, which means having their superstar quarterback on the field is crucial.
The Packers and Redskins will kick off at 1:00 p.m. ET.
While Rodgers is likely to play this Sunday, it’ll be worth keeping an eye on his playing status.
