A 'little sore,' Rodgers gets ready for Redskins

But he does now: the Redskins, Peterson said following Washington's 31-17 win over Green Bay, are capable of beating anyone, even Aaron Rodgers and perennially potent Packers, when they're properly prepared, sufficiently energized and singularly focused.

For the second consecutive week, it looks like Washington's home crowd will again elect to stay home instead of watching the team's matchup against the Green Bay Packers in person.

"The heat and the adrenaline definitely helped (on Sunday), but it's just going to be something you've got to deal with for a while", Rodgers said.

He was cleared on Wednesday to return to practice as a full participant.

One of Rodgers' many strengths is his mobility and knack for extending plays with his legs when the pocket breaks down. Burton was claimed off waivers by the Packers from the Atlanta Falcons on September 11 and was inactive for week one against the Minnesota Vikings.

"I am raising money because the Officiatirs [sic] for the National Football League have been increasingly unfair and I would like to show my support toward the Green Bay Packer's [sic], especially Clay Matthews". "The energy level that we had, it was evident coming into the locker room".

"He's got to know what's up - meaning, what plays are up", Rodgers said of McCarthy.

"Obviously it won't be 100 percent, so I'll just adjust accordingly to how I'm feeling and try to get through", Rodgers said. A similar hit on Rodgers by Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks would also be part of the video. While Kansas City is seventh overall versus the run, its inability to stop pass-catching backs is why it's 30th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing runners.

Rodgers, who suffered a broken collarbone following a hit by Minnesota's Anthony Barr last season, said the league has gone too far in protecting quarterbacks.

"This whole week", he added, "I knew there was no way that we were going to come out and be flat today".

Some of those pass interference penalties were so ticky tacky (except those on House). His head is out of it. That's not roughing the passer. "What do you say to him on that?"

"Obviously when you're tackling a guy from the front you're gonna land on him", Matthews said. He called himself a traditionalist.

"I think we'll see some Aaron Jones a lot", he told reporters midweek.

McCarthy did not expect CB Kevin King (groin) to play this week, though he did not think it would be a long-term issue.
