Aaron Rodgers is drawing comparisons to Jesus around the NFL

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy has made it clear he isn't sure if Aaron Rodgers will be playing this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings but Mike Zimmer isn't buying it because the Packers quarterback, "walks on water".

On Wednesday, Rodgers did not practice.

Rodgers said immediately after Green Bay's incredible comeback that he'd play in Week 2 against Minnesota, and the 34-year-old didn't back down from that sentiment Wednesday. "See how it feels tomorrow and see how it feels Friday, Saturday and hopefully ready to go Sunday".

"Haven't even thought about that", Rodgers said when asked if he had confidence in Kizer if the backup needed to start.

We all know how Rodgers played with one healthy leg in the second half of the Bears game.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer is pretty certain his team will be facing Rodgers.

Rodgers guaranteed he wouldn't miss any time, but the Packers are keen on being cautious with the injury.

"Obviously there's the hope of playing", McCarthy said, via the team's website.

It's in a similar fashion to the calf injury Rodgers had down the stretch of the 2014 season. His goal is to be able to move around in the small circle [pocket] he was working in during the second half against the Bears.

Wearing a brace could be an option, depending on how the quarterback feels later in the week.
