And he's apparently got "unfinished business" against the Vikings.

As expected, all signs suggest that Aaron Rodgers will give it a go Sunday at noon when the Vikings play the Packers at Lambeau Field. 

NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that Rodgers is still dealing with swelling and soreness in the left knee that he sprained in a Week 1 victory over the Bears, but he plans on playing. 

What's more is that ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Rodgers' injury could take up to two months to heal properly, but for now he plans to play through the pain.

"He shouldn't have played last week and shouldn't play now, but he likely will," a source told Schefter, adding that Rodgers will be on a "short leash." 

Rodgers also has "unfinished business" against the Vikings, according to Pelissero, who is obviously referring to last season's hit from Anthony Barr that essentially ended Rodgers' year.
