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.
GREEN BAY — Minnesota Vikings coach Mike Zimmer isn’t buying it. The Green Bay Packers can say all they want that quarterback Aaron Rodgers is day to day with a knee injury. The two-time NFL MVP will be given the whole week to get ready for Sunday’s game against Minnesota, coach Mike McCarthy said. “Yeah, well, you know he walks on water, so I’m sure he’s going to play,” Zimmer said Wednesday in a conference call.

The inside linebacker got right to work on Monday with Green Bay, which traded for Morrison to boost depth at a position hit by injuries. Morrison was at practice before facing more meetings and a long night of cramming the playbook. If he’s a quick enough study, Morrison might even play in the preseason finale on
INDIANAPOLIS — Indianapolis and Green Bay didn’t wait for this week’s roster moves to start filling holes. Instead, they cut a deal Sunday. The Colts traded inside linebacker Antonio Morrison to the Packers for cornerback Lenzy Pipkins, giving each veteran a chance to impress their new coaches in this week’s preseason finales — and a better chance of making the 53-man active roster. Green Bay already was thin at inside linebacker after incumbent starter Jake
