It's probably THE single biggest question heading into Week 2 all throughout the NFL, will Aaron Rodgers play or won't he?
His performance on Sunday night against the Bears could leave you to lean either way. He was clearly hurt enough to miss half the game. He wasn't the same when he came back. But he did still will his team to victory and make some good plays along the way as well.
While the media may be debating it on a daily basis as we head up to Sunday, the Vikings are getting fooled. They've already made up their minds on #12's status.
"We know he's playing," Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said Wednesday in the Vikings locker room. "We're getting ready to play Aaron [Rodgers]. I don't know if he's mobile, I don't know if he can run, we don't know anything. We're game planning that he's running and we're going to go out there and execute assignments."
While Rodgers' track record against the Vikings throughout his career can speak for itself, Aaron's last four meetings with the Mike Zimmer led Minnesota Vikings have resulted in three losses (one at least partially a result of the broken collar bone injury last season).
Packers coach Mike McCarthy has him listed officially as "day-to-day" so we'll have to see exactly what that means, but if past history is any indicator, if Rodgers can go, he will.
