Rodgers said,

“Missed some throws that I usually hit. We had some catches to catch balls we couldn’t catch in order to sustain drives. And then we had a couple mental errors.”

While limited practice appearances may be replicated Thursday and Friday, the two-time MVP has “no worries” about suiting up Sunday at Minnesota.
