Aaron Rodgers Concerned Knee Will Get Worse Over Season

Aaron Rodgers performed well in Sunday's draw with the Minnesota Vikings, but the Green Bay Packers quarterback is anxious about potentially aggravating a knee sprain that remains in a somewhat precarious state.

Even with his bum knee, Rodgers was still able to play a solid game on his way to a 29-29 tie with the Vikings in Week 2.

On Wednesday, Rodgers voiced some concern that the knee will actually get worse as he plays on it, though he's hopeful that the opposite will happen.

Asked if he was anxious about making his injury worse, Rodgers said: "Obviously that's a concern". "Hopefully it goes the other way though".

Aaron Rodgers fears knee injury will get worse

Rodgers is unlikely to do much activity again this week, but he does plan to be on the field when the Packers visit the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Rodgers said his knee still isn't "100 percent" and he's making adjustments to mitigate the risk of further injury. That may not be enough to help Packers fans rest easy.

MCL sprains can be a pretty serious injury, and depending on the next few weeks it could grow into a truly lingering issue for Rodgers for a majority of the season.
