Many around the Packers thought Barr should have been penalized and Rodgers wasn't happy with Barr's reaction after the hit, but said this summer that "it's time to move on for everybody".

"It's not a setback", McCarthy said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

Meanwhile, if there's a player not needing practice leading to a game, Rodgers would certainly qualify given his familiarity with the offensive scheme and the upcoming opponent. Will the Packers risk putting Rodgers out there for the whole game knowing he could get hurt?

The Vikings are planning to face Rodgers, not backup DeShone Kizer, in what will be quarterback Kirk Cousins' first NFC North game since signing in Minnesota as a free agent in March.

The Green Bay Packers did the near impossible and turned a 20-point third quarter deficit into a victory over the Chicago Bears in Week 1.

Rodgers said he is feeling "a little better every day", but is "pretty sore". "To be in this room, you've got to be mentally and physical tough".

Rodgers has not seen the Vikings since suffering a collar bone injury in Week 5 last season that knocked him out for the majority of the year.

"We know he's playing", Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen said.
