Aaron Rodgers listed on initial injury report for Monday's game

The quarterback is listed as a limited participant for Thursday's practice. 

The Packers released their first injury report of the week earlier this afternoon. While the sheer number of names is the first thing most will notice, one of those names may give Packers fans pause. 

Aaron Rodgers is listed as a limited participant with a knee injury.

As much as I love all the changes to the 2019 Packers the injuries remain the same.

Really all they did was swap the top 2 trainers position titles so I guess you can understand why there's no bis changes in this area.

I'm pretty happy with the Packers injury situation, and I partly credit that we didn't get guys beat up in the pre-season.

Of our preferred starters on offense, we've missed Adams for one game. We missed Bulaga. But we've had excellent health compared to a lot of teams. And on defense, of course Adams again (different Adams) and Savage.

In 2017, we got off to a 4-1 start. We finished 7-9. What happened? Could it happen
again?

IMO, Rodgers is still getting too much contact. Yes, he's done better about getting rid of the ball. Yes, we ran it pretty well at Dallas.. But he's taken a lot of hits for an old guy and sooner or later, everything breaks. He's taken 10 sacks and 14 hits so that's more than a once every quarter average.

Nothing would help him stay healthy more than running the ball more. We're still not running the ball enough. Remember how I said that something like 9 out of the top 10 rushing ATTEMPTs made the playoffs last year? Well, the Top Ten looks something like this:

Ravens, Patriots, Seahawks, 49ers, Colts, Vikings, Eagles, Bills, Tampa and the Cowboys.

We're 17th right now with 127. We'd like to average better than 28 runs per game and we're still only at about a 25 runs/game average. You could argue that the quick passes to Jones are runs, but other teams do that too and still have more runs.

We miss Williams. We should try really hard not to break Jones before Thanksgiving.

Agreed. If the Packers can get though to mid season without any more of their core group going on IR, than this will a very dangerous team during the playoff run. That said, looking at the injury report this week (long list) remains one just how much this team (and for that matter every team) is one the 'knife's edge' week to week.
