Rodgers was listed as a non-participant for Wednesday's practice and could miss additional time ahead of the Packers' game against the Washington Redskins (1-1) on Sunday (1 p.m. ET). The Colts are allowing 11 catches and 93 yards per game to opposing running backs.
As long as Rodgers remains hampered by his knee injury, it will be more important than usual for the Packers offensive line to protect their star quarterback.
That's why Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is typically looking Cobb's way in pivotal situations. "But I'm going to be out there if I'm up to it and try and get this thing back turned the right direction with a win next week". "Maybe I can look and see who I'm approaching", said the 33-year-old Peterson, referring to Washington's Week 4 bye. More than 30 roughing-the-passer penalties were called in this season's first two weeks.
But against the Packers, the Redskins began the afternoon in shotgun formation and Smith hit tight end Jordan Reed for a seven-yard gain. Entering the game, they had gone six full quarters without a touchdown.
STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Packers lost last visit but won at Washington in playoffs after 2015 season. He shed off defenders. They beat the Chicago Bears and tied the Minnesota Vikings. The first half was the offense's time to shine. Smith also ran for 20 yards.
Tramon Williams joins Green Bay in the offseason and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix returns to lead a potent defensive back corps. Obviously, the Vikings and Packers is a rivalry game, highly anticipated, so I don't know if other guys play extra hard.
With a heavy sigh, Matthews said: "Nine years, I've been doing it one way in the National Football League, successfully, and now it just seems as if that way doesn't work anymore". "You've got to be able to respond".
"The heat and the adrenaline definitely helped, but it's just going to be something you've got to deal with for a while".
"We're still in a day-by-day mode, I mean, just how he's progressing", Green Bay coach Mike McCarthy said.
The defense wasn't ideal, either.
Allison has two catches for 76 yards.
The score cut Washington's lead to 21-10.
One way to limit Rodgers and the Packers (1-0-1) is holding on to the ball, something the Redskins (1-1) struggled with against the Colts when they went 5 of 15 on third down. Third-down drop on the first drive.
Luckily for the Redskins, their defense remained resolute. Rodgers was sacked four times and hit nine more times in that game. With a little over five minutes left, they got a takeaway to put the Redskins in great position to win.
"He's got to know what's up - meaning, what plays are up", Rodgers said of McCarthy. "I [told] them today, we play with that type of energy and that type of effort every week, we're pretty unsafe".
