GREEN BAY — Still no answers on A-Rod. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is questionable for Sunday’s NFC North showdown with Minnesota. Rodgers, who missed the end of the first half of the Week 1 victory against Chicago with an injured left knee, did not practice Wednesday and Thursday and would not have practiced on Friday. “Aaron’s getting better,” coach Mike McCarthy said Friday. “I would say he feels better than he did at the beginning of the week.

Inside linebacker Jake Ryan, one of the team’s top run defenders, was carted off the field late in practice Monday with an apparent right leg injury.
