Aaron Rodgers Held Out Of Practice With Foot Strain

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters he held Aaron Rodgers out of practice Monday due to a foot strain that “flared up” on the quarterback this morning. McCarthy did not rule out Rodgers playing in Thursday’s preseason game, but said he was simply being conservative with his signal caller.

"Just being cautious,” McCarthy said. “If it was up to him, he would have practiced today. I’m just being smart with him.”

The Packers head coach said his entire “team is beat up right now,” but noted that none of his players’ injuries is overly serious.

“These are not major injuries,” McCarthy told reporters. “I don’t see any of these players being out for an extended period of time.”

Judging from McCarthy’s comments, it doesn’t sound as if Rodgers or any of his offensive playmakers are in any danger of missing the season opener against the New Orleans Saints on September 8.

Do other teams deal with this many "minor" injuries? Are we about to walk into another injury-laden season?

I'm sure almost every other team has the same issues. Ours are magnified by the fact that we hear about every little one in addition to others, and pay more attention to our boys. If you read other teams' injury reports, you'll see long lists, as well. Usually minor. Let's just cross our fingers that they remain "minor" and not "season-ending".

Wished I lived in Wisconsin love this state with Brewers red hot and Packers season about to begin.
