But even if he does, Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur doesn't think it will prevent his quarterback from making any throws. Rodgers, who injured the thumb on his throwing hand on the final play of last Sunday's loss to the New York Giants , practiced with it wrapped in tape on both Thursday and Friday. He was listed as a full participant in both sessions and was removed from the injury report on Friday. He did not practice at all on Wednesday, when he said he received treatment from the medical staff.

When asked if Rodgers will have play with his thumbed taped, LaFleur, "No idea." Rodgers won't have rookie receiver Christian Watson . He was ruled out after he aggravated a hamstring injury against the Giants. LaFleur said the Packers are considering shutting him down for a while because of the recurring nature of the injury. That could mean a stint on injured reserve. The Packers' best pass rusher, Rashan Gary , was listed as questionable after he sustained a toe injury in practice this week. Gary practiced in a limited capacity on Friday. "Definitely a little concerned about that," LaFleur said of Gary.
