Aaron Rodgers may need bigger brace after setback

There's good news and potentially bad news for Aaron Rodgers, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback could have his top three receivers back together for Monday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers, but he might be a little less mobile than he'd like.

Rodgers experienced what he called a setback with his ailing left knee during last Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions, when he took a hit from linebacker Christian Jones on the game's opening drive.

For the first time since he was injured in the season opener, Rodgers wore a smaller, lighter brace against the Lions. Now there's a chance he may have to go back to the larger brace that he wore in the three games immediate following the injury.

"I hope not," Rodgers said. "The goal would be to wear the same brace I wore last week, but I have a lot of faith in our training staff and we're going to [use] the brace we feel is most safe and allowing me to do exactly what I'm able to do on Monday."

Rodgers did not practice on Thursday, the Packers' first practice of the week in advance of the 49ers game. That followed the same pattern as the last month. He said he hoped to practice on Friday; the past two weeks, he has taken part in that full-pads workout (which is normally on Thursday in advance of a Sunday game).
