Aaron Rodgers’ health is improving.

The 34-year-old quarterback injured his leg in the first half of the Packers’ 24-23 win against the Bears last weekend. Rodgers returned to the game, but he did not participate in Green Bay’s practices Wednesday and Thursday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy discussed Rodgers' status for the team’s Week 2 game against the Vikings with reporters Friday.

“Aaron's getting better,” McCarthy said (via Packers.com). “I would say he feels better than he did at the beginning of the week. Tomorrow's practice will be a big indicator. Nothing's changed, he's still day to day.”

Earl Thomas plans on staying in Seattle, if they want him

  Earl Thomas plans on staying in Seattle, if they want him Thomas, who put up big stats in his Week 1 return with the Seahawks, said he plans on staying with the team … if they want him.He made his return in the Seahawks' Week 1 opener in Denver and played 65 snaps, making five tackles, grabbing an interception and recording two pass breakups despite practicing only for a week.

McCarthy said Rodgers could play in the game even if he doesn’t receive any practice reps.

“We’ve established that point some time ago in his career,” McCarthy said. “You’d like to walk off the field Saturday and have your plan set, but this is the NFL. Things happen. We’ll be ready for anything. I know he wants to play. We’ll see how it goes.”

Rodgers completed 20 of 30 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns in the Packers' comeback victory over Chicago in Week 1.

Packers must fix 3 issues, not including Clay Matthews penalties .
A pair of ridiculous roughing the passer penalties against Clay Matthews is not the reason the Packers enter Week 4 with a 1-1-1 record. Instead, three glaring issues in Green Bay need to be addressed.This is generally the period when quarterback Aaron Rodgers tells Green Bay fans to "R-E-L-A-X," but that might be difficult for those who see familiar, negative trends under coach Mike McCarthy. The Packers started 1-2 in 2013 and were able to battle back to win the NFC North, but the division is improved now.
