GREEN BAY http://www.cardinalsauthorizedshops.com/authentic-byron-murphy-jersey , Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hoped to return from the bye week without the brace that has protected his left knee since the second half of the opening game.Instead, Rodgers was the only player not on the field on Tuesday for the team’s first practice of the week.While his teammates began preparing for Sunday’s matchup at the undefeated Los Angeles Rams, Rodgers continued to rehab the injury. That’s how he’s started every practice week since sustaining the injury during the second quarter against Chicago on Sept. 9.“It’s too early to tell,” Rodgers said of playing without the brace. “I’d love to, but it’s too early to tell at this point.”Rodgers has played well, despite the injury and reduced practice time. He enters this week’s games ranked 10th in the NFL with a passer rating of 100.1. His 6.5 yards per carry is better than his career-high mark of 6.3 in 2014.Still, he would like to be fully healthy as the Packers start a critical stretch to the season.“If I’m completely healed, I don’t need to wear a brace. Feel more comfortable without it, obviously Andy Isabella Jersey ,” Rodgers said. “Having dealt with a knee injury for much of my football life, obviously you’re more protected. You see some guys who do wear it all the time without having issues, but I just feel more comfortable without having it on. So, if it’s not on, that means I’m feeling great and, if it is, that means I’m not quite all the way back.”Rodgers said he did not have another MRI during the bye to determine how much the knee has healed. Regardless, the break came at a good time for the team and for Rodgers, who has been dealing with other minor injuries. He’s been sacked 19 times.“It was a great week Brian Burns Jersey , nice and relaxing with everything we’re dealing with,” he said. “The knee is an issue but we have other bumps and bruises that aren’t on the injury report because they’re not significant enough. It helps, the week, healing those things up.”The Packers will need Rodgers at his best as he takes on the Rams. With Los Angeles ranking third in the NFL with 33.6 points per game, Rodgers knows he might have to win a shootout.Doing so, however, will be difficult against a defense that ranks fourth with 18.3 points allowed per game. Behind Aaron Donald’s four sacks, the Rams had seven sacks in a rout of the 49ers last week.“You have that chip on your shoulder,” receiver Davante Adams said. “Obviously http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/greg-little-jersey-authentic , we understand why we would be underdogs based on the record and the play style and the way they’ve been playing.“They’ve been playing some great ball in all three phases, really. So, I saw something where this is like the biggest underdog he’s ever been point-wise. So, that kind of stuff fires guys like No. 12 up and I know it fires me up.”The challenge won’t get any easier in succeeding weeks. Next, it’s a trip to New England to face the Patriots. After a home game against Miami, it’s back-to-back road games at Seattle and Minnesota. Those five teams are a combined 23-10-1.For Green Bay (3-2-1), this could be a make-or-break stretch to its season.“We’re going to have to play a lot better than we have to win those games,” Rodgers said. “This is an important stretch in our season. I’m not going to say it’s going to define our season, but it’s definitely going to shake things out when we get on the other side of this and get back home in six weeks on where we’re at in the race and what we’re playing for.”
CHICAGO — The Chicago Cubs‘ starting pitchers may not be performing as consistent as they would like Will Grier Jersey , but Joe Maddon’s offense is finding ways to make up for it.

Addison Russell’s grand slam helped bail out starter Mike Montgomery in Friday’s series opener against the Minnesota Twins. Now, as Tyler Chatwood takes the mound in Saturday’s matinee interleague game at Wrigley Field, the Cubs will push for their third straight victory after they rallied for their second consecutive come-from-behind win Friday at Wrigley Field.

Russell’s blast erased a three-run deficit en route to a 10-6 victory that included home runs by Jason Heyward, Ben Zobrist and Kyle Schwarber. The win came a day after the Cubs scored seven runs in the seventh inning against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The run support could be big for Chatwood, who has struggled throughout the season and will make his first start after being activated off the paternity list earlier this week. Chatwood told reporters Friday that he feels good and that he was able to come in and throw a bullpen session as he prepared for Saturday’s start.

He admitted the uncertainty of when his wife would give birth weighed on him in his last start. Chatwood (3-5, 3.95 ERA) has taken no-decisions in four of his past five starts but was effective in his most recent outing. Chatwood allowed a run and two hits in five innings against the Dodgers when he threw 101 pitches. He is 0-2 in three career starts against the Twins with a 6.91 ERA.

“Luckily, everything worked out,” Chatwood said Friday of the week’s events, according to the Chicago Tribune. “Everybody’s good.”

Chatwood will start after the Cubs hoped Yu Darvish could return from a right triceps injury on Saturday. Darvish http://www.panthersfootballauthentic.com/christian-miller-jersey-authentic , who experienced pain in a bullpen session on Thursday, flew to Dallas for a second opinion. Tests showed he has a right elbow impingement and inflammation and will be re-evaluated in three to five days.

The Twins, who have lost six of their last eight games despite Joe Mauer’s five RBIs in Friday’s loss, will attempt to get back on track when left-hander Adalberto Mejia makes his first start of the season. Mejia, who went 4-7 with a 4.50 ERA in 21 starts last year, has spent the entire season in the minor leagues.

Mejia pitched well at Triple-A Rochester and struck out 50 and registered a 2.74 ERA in 49 1/3 innings. He has posted a 4-1 record in June with a 1.41 ERA with 30 strikeouts in 32 innings. Mejia will face the Cubs for the first time in his career.

The Twins announced this week that they would recall Mejia at a time that manager Paul Molitor said makes sense for everyone involved.

“The reports have been his command has been much better,” Molitor told reporters earlier this week, according to the team’s official website. “More efficient. His off-speed seems to be working. His changeup is the only pitch that’s been hot and cold. His fastball-slider command has been really good. He’s had a handful of good outings in a row. Efficient is good.”
