Aaron Rodgers is going to try to play today. That's what it looks like is going to happen with the Green Bay Packers' star quarterback, anyway. Here's the latest on Rodgers' status for today's game against Minnesota.

The Packers just announced a new update on Rodgers. He is active for today's game.

"It’s official: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is active vs. Vikings. This will be interesting."

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier today that Rodgers was dealing with a knee injury that might not be fully healed for a couple of months. However, Rodgers has no ligament damage, and plans on playing through the injury. "Aaron Rodgers has no ligament damage in his knee but his injury could take up to two months to heal, per sources. For now, he will try to play through the pain," he tweeted.

NFL Network insiders Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero reported earlier this morning that Rodgers, barring a setback before kickoff, will be starting.

"Absent a setback, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will start today vs the Vikings, sources tell me and Tom Pelissero. He’s still sore and swollen because of a sprained knee, but sounded like practice Saturday impressed everyone. Should be good to go," he tweeted.

Rodgers was brilliant in the second half of the Packers' comeback win over Chicago. Today's game is set to kick off at 1 p.m. E.T. on FOX.
