Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is active for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field.

He was questionable coming into the day with a left knee injury.

The two-time NFL MVP was held out from practice at midweek but went through the team's light practice on Saturday. Rodgers was hurt in the second quarter last week against the Bears before returning in the second half to lead a come-from-behind victory.

Green Bay does have two backup quarterbacks active with DeShone Kizer and Tim Boyle. Receiver Davante Adams is also active for the Packers after he was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury.
