Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Wednesday he doesn't believe his hamstring injury will be a factor for Sunday's game, according to ESPN

Rodgers injured his hamstring during the Packers' Oct. 26 loss to the New Orleans Saints. While he finished the game and threw 418 passing yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, his mobility was visibly limited. Green Bay had a bye last weekend, allowing the quarterback more time to recover. 

"I take care of my body pretty well, and I trust that by Sunday that it's not going to be an issue," Rodgers said. 

Rodgers participated in the team workout on Monday, his first on-field work since the injury, and was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN.

Receiver Jordy Nelson later said Rodgers "looked the same as always" while practicing. After Monday's workout, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said the quarterback "looked good."

Rodgers said if his hamstring does bother him during Sunday's game he "might dial it back a little bit" but will be smart with his hamstring leading up to the game. 

Through eight games this season, Rodgers has completed 67.6 percent of his passes for 2,092 yards, 19 touchdowns and three touchdowns. Green Bay had won four straight before its loss to New Orleans.

The Packers (5-3) host the Chicago Bears (3-5) on Sunday.
