McCarthy Gives Update on Rodgers and Matthews Injuries
The Packers gave an update on Wednesday on Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews injuries.
Aaron Rodgers said his hamstring injury is improving.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said they both had treatments today, and went through the weight workout. “Just from talking to the trainers, we fully expect that they'll be ready to play Sunday,” said McCarthy.
Rodgers and the offense will be doing extra studying as they face the Texans here at Lambeau field for the first time since 2008.
“I'm in some pain no doubt about it, and some swelling. But we got an x-ray and nothing is broken. We'll see moving forward as far as going into this game, that's ultimately the goal, but we've got some work to do,” said Matthews.
Aaron Rodgers may have a new "go-to" guy when it comes to the passing game.
No one can deny the packers success on Sunday had a lot to do with Devante Adams.
The Packers knew they needed to start fast to break that four game losing streak, and that's exactly what they did in Philadelphia Monday night. Thanks to Davante Adams. He had two touchdown catches on the Packers first two drives. And lately he's been the Packers go to guy at receiver.
“I'd like to think that I can get a spark going or our team. I don't know if that's a 100% accurate stat, but I like to come up with some energy and I feel like when me and Aaron click early, it sets up things for the rest of the game,” said Adams.
“He's just now finally healthy, and when you're healthy, you're more confident, and the more confident, the more plays you make like he made on Monday and he's been making most of the season,” said Rodgers.
Adams credits good health with his resurgence in 2016.
