Packers QB Aaron Rodgers limited in practice with right shoulder injury

Thursday November 19th, 2015

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited in practice Wednesday with a right shoulder injury, but is expected to play Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, the Associated Press reports.

“Probably banged up. But we all are at this time,” Rodgers said. “It’s Week 11 coming up, everybody is dealing with different things. You get a routine, learn how to take care of your body and push through things.”

Rodgers has been sacked 22 times this season, tied for eighth most among NFL quarterbacks. Half of those sacks came over the Packers last three games. Coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers has been taking too many hits, which won’t been helped by injuries on the offensive line.

Every starting offensive lineman except for center Corey Linsley is listed on the Packers’ injury report. Tackle Bryan Bulaga and guard T.J. Lang did not practice at all on Wednesday.

The Packers (6–3) have lost their last three games, and sit in second place in the NFC North behind Minnesota (7–2).
