GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was limited in practice on Wednesday with a right shoulder injury.
Coach Mike McCarthy said before practice that Rodgers was ''banged up.'' Rodgers agreed with that assessment, though he said he was not concerned about his availability for Sunday's crucial game at Minnesota.
Still, Rodgers' health is just the latest worrisome issue for the Packers' sluggish offense. A three-game losing skid has dropped Green Bay a game back of the NFC North-leading Vikings.
McCarthy has said that Rodgers has been hit too much over the past three games. Two offensive line starters sat out on Wednesday.
Rodgers has been sacked 22 times this season, with half of those sacks in the last three games.
