Aaron Rodgers injury update: the Green Bay Packers superstar has not practiced this week, after hurting his knee against the Chicago Bears. That doesn't mean he won't play, necessarily.

It may come down to a legitimate game-time decision, ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kick-off against the NFC North rival Minnesota Vikings.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy issued an update on the Aaron Rodgers injury situation today.

Via Packers.com:

“Nothing’s changed,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday. “He’s clearly day to day. Hopefully he’ll do work tomorrow, but I can’t answer that question.”

The Packers have another practice tomorrow, ahead of Sunday's home game. Even if Rodgers misses that practice as well, he could still play.

“He feels better than he did at the beginning of the week,” McCarthy said. “Tomorrow’s practice will be a big indicator.

“He can play with no reps. We’ve established that point some time ago in his career. You’d like to walk off the field Saturday and have your plan set, but this is the NFL. Things happen. We’ll be ready for anything. I know he wants to play. We’ll see how it goes.”

FS1's Colin Cowherd said that he heard Rodgers is set to play, during his Thursday show. On the other hand, BetDSI has put out odds that don't paint a pretty picture for Rodgers' chances to start on Sunday.

Stay tuned, NFL fans. We're probably not finding out until the Packers' offense takes the field.
