Rodgers doesn't practice today

After limited practice Wednesday, and extensive practice Thursday, QB Aaron Rodgers was held out of practice today, according to reports. He was experiencing some soreness in his throwing shoulder, the one that was injured several weeks ago. He's listed as probable for Sunday's game against the ViQueens, but Coach McCarthy indicated to reporters that there was no doubt that Rodgers would be in the line up Sunday.

There has also been a great deal of talk on the local sports call-in shows this week as to whether this game is a must-win game for the Packers or not. Given that it seems likely that the only way the Packers could get into the playoffs this season is as a division winner rather than wildcard, sweeping the 'Queens would certainly would beating Da Bearz next weekend.

But more on Sunday's game later. For now, it's enough to know the Packers are listed as 2-1/2 point underdogs.
