Aaron Jones back in the fold for Packers

Aaron Jones back in the fold for Packers

The gameplan might see some minor limitations, but make no mistake: Come Sunday, Rodgers will be on the field.

The Washington Redskins host the Green Bay Packers, Sunday afternoon at Fed Ex Field. They will take on the Saints in New Orleans for a Monday night game on October 8.

Also on the injury front, McCarthy said cornerback Davon House (biceps) got through Thursday's practice fine and "everything looks encouraging" for him to be able to play. "That's the only way you beat the greatest - by moving him off the spot and switching up the looks".

"Obviously that's a concern", Rodgers said Wednesday, Sept. 19. "His head is out of it, his hand is on the ground, that's not roughing the passer", Rodgers said.

Rodgers played with a brace on his knee against the Vikings.

Clearly, the Packers would like for Rodgers to get back to 100 percent as soon as possible. "Take it week by week". Under normal circumstances, Rodgers is a must-start on a weekly basis, yet there's too much risk in play with his injury. Green Bay plays a more aggressive defense with more blitzing and man coverage and they aren't going to change that up today because of what the Colts did.

"I don't think anything brings out the best", Peterson said. Rodgers was sacked four times and hit nine more times in that game. Burton was claimed off waivers by the Packers from the Atlanta Falcons on September 11 and was inactive for week one against the Minnesota Vikings. "I was giving all I had each time I played those guys".

It's probably never fun for opposing defenses to face Aaron Rodgers, but it's especially worrisome when he comes in fresh off a loss.

Midway through the second quarter, the Redskins took over on their own 2-yard line and began a drive that was one of their most impressive this season. They will need to continue this success on Sunday. "What he's dealt with as far as the amount of change just speaks volumes about him as a football player and a person". Jones gives the Packers another option in the backfield with his slashing ability. The tailback was suspended by the NFL for the first two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy. Fantasy tip: Jamaal Williams and Montgomery set to split majority of carries even with Jones back.

Against the Arizona Cardinals, the Redskins showed off their physical defensive style and their efficient offensive potential. Rodgers was 30 of 42 for 281 yards and touchdown on injured left knee last week vs. Minnesota.
