Aaron Rodgers' Status vs. Vikings 'No Layup,' Per Packers HC Mike McCarthy

Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said on Thursday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn't a lock to play against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.

According to's Rob Demovsky, McCarthy said: "This is no layup. That's why it's a day-to-day situation."

Rodgers suffered a knee injury during the first half of Green Bay's Week 1 win against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. He was taken to the locker room on a cart but returned to start the second half.

The veteran signal-caller missed practice Thursday to rehab his knee.
