Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited in practice Wednesday with a right shoulder injury, but is expected to play Sunday against the Vikings.
“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.
The Packers (6–3) have lost their last three games, and sit in second place in the NFC North behind Minnesota (7–2).
