McCarthy: Packers QB Aaron Rodgers to get week to get ready

Green Bay returned to the practice field on Wednesday, though Rodgers did not participate and stayed at Lambeau Field to rehab.

McCarthy said he is encouraged that Rodgers will be with the rehabilitation group, but stopped short of saying the team's franchise quarterback would be able to practice the rest of the week.

"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said, via the team's website. Will the Packers risk putting Rodgers out there for the whole game knowing he could get hurt?

Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer isn't buying it.

Vikings safety Harrison Smith, fresh off an NFC North Player of the Week award, knows just how hard it is going up against Rodgers.

A win for Chicago in week one against the Packers, especially after recently acquiring Khalil Mack, would have been a huge confidence boost for the Bears.

"There was a lot of adrenaline and (it's) pretty sore the last three days", Rodgers said.

Even though the Packers shouldn't make rely on that formula for success, it was extremely entertaining and one of the best games fans have seen in a long time. The injury limited Rodgers to seven games previous year.

NOTES: Adams also missed practice after he said he hurt his shoulder when a Bears defensive back landed on him after making a 51-yard catch.
