Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy has made it clear he isn't sure if Aaron Rodgers will be playing this weekend against the Minnesota Vikings but Mike Zimmer isn't buying it because the Packers quarterback, "walks on water".

The Green Bay Packers pulled off one of the most astonishing comebacks in recent NFL history, as they came back from a 20-0 deficit to defeat the Chicago Bears 24-23 on Sunday Night Football.

The two-time MVP told ESPN's Rob Demovksy that he avoided taking pain medication Sunday. He said his knee is still sore, but that it's improving every day.

Rodgers said in his postgame interview Sunday night on NBC that he would play vs. the Vikings, against whom he broke his collarbone previous year.

It'll be interesting to see how the Vikings play Rodgers. "We'll give him the whole week to get ready". He tore the ACL in his knee in high school, and played with the injury for four years before having surgery while in college at California.

"So I know what it feels like to play with something like this, and hopefully I'll be at the point where I can (play) on Sunday", Rodgers said. That group includes linebacker Anthony Barr, who broke Rodgers' collarbone with a hit early last season.
