Sunday's dramatic win for the Green Bay Packers didn't come without a cost. Aaron Rodgers was injured during the game, and left for much of the second quarter, but he isn't the only player banged up.

On Wednesday, top wide receiver Davante Adams also missed practice. He told the media that he hurt his shoulder on his 51-yard reception, which set up the Packers' second touchdown.

Earlier today, head coach Mike McCarthy revealed that Aaron Rodgers did not practice for the second day in a row.

Adams, however, was elevated to limited participation on Thursday, after also sitting out Wednesday's practice. That's a good sign ahead of the huge game against the Vikings coming up.

Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams were two of four Packers listed on today's injury report.

Linebacker Oren Burks was limited for the second day in a row. Safety Josh Jones was out for a second straight day.

Via The Athletic's Michael Cohen:

This afternoon, FS1's Colin Cowherd cited a source who said that Rodgers would play on Sunday. That is what Rodgers said after the Bears win on Sunday night, but he has since walked it back a bit, saying he and the team are taking things day-to-day.

The two NFC North rivals kick off at 1 p.m. ET at Lambeau Field. Both teams sit at 1-0.
