After taking care of business against the Seattle Seahawks this past Sunday, the Green Bay Packers are now focused on the Minnesota Vikings in what should be a great Week 11 matchup. It goes without saying, but Aaron Rodgers is ready to light up the Minnesota defense.
However, there was some concern among the fanbase on Wednesday when it was announced that Rodgers would miss practice. Nothing to see here, folks, as Rodgers made it quite clear he’ll be ready to rock against the Vikes.
#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers says “I’m definitely playing Sunday” despite not practicing today. He says today was a “mental day” so he was among vets who got the day off.

Aaron Rodgers missing practice won’t keep him off the field on Sunday
It looks like Wednesday was just a mental day of rest for the future Hall-of-Fame signal-caller. Once kickoff rolls around, though, he’ll be all set to try and lead the Packers to another big-time victory.
Entering Sunday’s action, Rodgers and the Packers are 8-2 on the year. At this point, the Vikings, who sit at 4-5, will need a miracle to try and snatch away the NFC North title away from Green Bay.
The crowd at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota will be ready to try and rattle Rodgers from start to finish, but that’s of course an incredibly tough thing to do. Rodgers is in the middle of another fantastic campaign for the Packers, as he’s thrown for 2,186 yards, 17 touchdowns and only four interceptions.
With Rodgers playing so hot, the Packers are among the favorites to potentially go on to win the Super Bowl. They can send quite the statement with a convincing win on the road against the Vikings this Sunday. All eyes will certainly be on Rodgers in this one here.
