On Wednesday, Rodgers voiced some concern that the knee will actually get worse as he plays on it, though he's hopeful that the opposite will happen.
"There's a goal to limit these hits, but they're pretty obvious when you see them - you know, a guy picking somebody up and full weight on them", Rodgers said earlier this week. Hopefully it goes the other way.
He admitted his knee "won't be 100 percent" but said he intends to "adjust accordingly to how I'm feeling and try to get through" one day at a time. He was in the rehab group during the mid-week practices before participating during the final practice of the week, which the Packers hold on Saturdays.
The hope, of course, is that Aaron Rodgers' injured left knee improves as the season goes along.

Scientists say the arachnids are merely enjoying the handsome weather and availability of food, taking the opportunity to "party". Chatzaki explained that the spiders were not risky for humans and would "have their party and soon die off".
MCL sprains can be a pretty serious injury, and depending on the next few weeks it could grow into a truly lingering issue for Rodgers for a majority of the season.
The Packers kept Rodgers out of practice all of last week until Saturday.
McCarthy altered his usual practice schedule in advance of Sunday's game at Washington. "Take it week by week". That should help to prevent further injury, unless the offensive line continues to look like the sieve it was against the Vikings.
Nothing will prevent further injury for Rodgers better than if he doesn't get hit.
