Keep playing that game

The Packers announced on Wednesday that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is working with the rehab group at practice.  They are still trying to convince everyone that he really hurt his knee on Sunday night.

Via Pro Football Talk:

The first day will not feature a full slate of practice work. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said on Wednesday morning that Rodgers will spend the day’s practice session working with the group of players rehabbing injuries.

“It’s not a setback,” McCarthy said, via Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “This is how it goes during the season. You have players in different categories.”

Just like he did by taking the cart to the locker room on Sunday night against the Bears, Rodgers is baiting the Vikings by making them think he's too injured to play up to his ability this weekend.  If he was actually injured, he wouldn't be practicing at all.

Good luck Minnesota.  If we learned anything from last weekend, it's that Rodgers' "injury" makes him a better passer.
