Aaron Rodgers suffered a knee injury during the first week of the NFL season against the Chicago Bears. Rodgers came back in the second half to complete a major comeback, although questions of his health remained heading into Week 2.

Green Bay named Rodgers as the team's starter against the Minnesota Vikings after announcing he did no suffer any ligament damage in his knee. Rodgers led the team to a tie against the Vikings and it doesn't look like he suffered any further damage to the knee.

On Monday afternoon, head coach Mike McCarthy gave an update on Rodgers' status moving forward.

"He's obviously sore. He's a warrior for what he gave us yesterday. It was outstanding. I don't have a read on if he's better this week than last week," McCarthy said on Monday.

Next up for the Packers is a trip to Washington D.C. to take on the Redskins. Considering Rodgers played the full game on Sunday, it's likely he'll do the same for Week 3.

Kickoff between the Packers and Redskins is set for 1:00 p.m. ET.
