Packers QB Aaron Rodgers 'banged up,' limited in practice

Author:

The Green Bay Packers passing game has been a little off recently and it is starting to look like some of it could be because of a physical problem for Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers was listed as a limited participant in practice on Green Bay's injury report, because of a right shoulder injury.

According to Pro Football Talk, Rodgers has denied that injuries were the cause of any of their recent problems, but Packers head coach Mike McCarthy admitted that Rodgers was "banged up."

The Associated Press notes that Rodgers has been taking a lot of hits recently. He has been sacked 22 times this year, half of those sacks have occurred during the Packers' three-game losing streak.

Rodgers has been particularly good against the Vikings over the years. He has thrown for 3,764 yards 32 touchdowns and four interceptions.

But Rodgers has never thrown for 300 yards in four career games on a defense led by Vikings coach Mike Zimmer.
