On Sunday, the Packers made him officially active for the game. Rodgers was wearing a knee brace during pregame warmups:
"Still dealing with swelling and soreness in his sprained knee, but improved throughout week, practiced Saturday, impressed teammates," Pelissero reported.
The 34-year-old former All-Pro suffered a sprained knee in the Sunday night season opener against the Chicago Bears, but returned to lead a memorable comeback victory.
However, Rodgers missed practice during the week until returning Saturday.
