Aaron Rodgers Concerned Knee Will Get Worse Over Season

They beat the Chicago Bears and tied the Minnesota Vikings. This looked like the performance of a exhausted, uninspired football team. This is the result of his arrest last October for marijuana possession.

The Packers also settled for too many field goals last week against Minnesota.

But let's forget about last week.

The fact that Rodgers was unable to produce yet another comeback overshadowed a dominant first half for a Redskins offense that, until Sunday, had not shown how complete it can be this year. He's going to be motivated and you would think the entire team would be.

In an National Football League where players are constantly asked to sacrifice their bodies for gameday, even a star of Rodgers' status is not immune. LB Ryan Kerrigan has four sacks in past four games and three sacks in two games vs.

The Green Bay Packers might get injured inside linebacker Oren Burks back for their game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

- Cobb had one of his worst games in a Packers uniform. Another player that should help the offense this week is Aaron Jones.

The NFL wants to keep quarterbacks safe, but there needs to be more consistency than what we're seeing from the referees in the early going. "Jamaal and Ty will be in the first slot".

Packers: DL Muhammad Wilkerson was carted off in the second quarter with an ankle injury.

Whether that's due to some sort of undisclosed injury, or simply a personal decision by Butler not to participate is not clear. The Clippers have expressed interest in Butler, but have no interest in parting with prized rookie Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.

But for me, all I can do is concentrate on myself. "Go out there and take care of my business and hopefully that's good enough". He has given himself the cushion he has craved, the advantage from which he was seemingly so unbeatable during his prime.

After a week of lamenting their inability to take chances with their passing game in the loss to Indianapolis, the Redskins stormed out against Green Bay. Tallied a team-high nine tackles, including several at or near the line of scrimmage, and batted down a pass. QB Aaron Rodgers: He wasn't sharp, really at any point in the game, but he still managed to throw for 265 yards and two scores on a still very painful left knee.

After the play, Packers coach Mike McCarthy was less than enthused about the situation. This should give Josh Doctson, Paul Richardson, and Jamison Crowder some opportunities to get chunk plays.

Veteran linebackers Clay Matthews and Nick Perry return to patrol the middle of the field for Green Bay.

Speaking of reasons why the Packers will win, the play of Alexander and Jackson is a big one.

Washington led 7-0 barely more than two minutes into the game. Down the field though, he has struggled which could lead to lots of dinks and dunks.

Smith has a reputation as a game manager. Luck was held under 200 yards and had two interceptions.

If the turnover battle is even, Green Bay should win the game, but if it tilts toward the Redkins, it will make winning on the road that much tougher.

Defensively, the Redskins did some good things. We learned that lesson last week.

"They're trying to think about the progress of the game and the safety and stuff, but it's still a collision sport, and those to me are not penalties", Rodgers told reporters Wednesday, via ESPN.
