Aaron Rodgers says he’ll miss at most 2 weeks of the season after tearing his Achilles’ tendon in practice.
The Packers running back said Sunday he suffered the injury in Thursday’s preseason finale against the Carolina Panthers.
Rodgers said he will be out of action for two weeks.
The team is hoping to return by the start of the regular season.
The latest on DeAndre White’s injury and the Green Bay Packers (all times local):12:15 p.m.
Green Bay Packers RBDeAndre White, who missed the last two games of the preseason due to a groin injury, is not expected to return this season, coach Mike McCarthy said Sunday.
McCarthy said he is hopeful White can return for the Packers’ Nov. 1 season opener against the Arizona Cardinals.
He also said the running back has been limited in practice and has not been cleared for contact, per a team source.
The Packers were expected to have a “complete” roster for the regular-season opener in Arizona, McCarthy said.
The team will have to find its way through a couple of roster changes, including starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver Jordy Nelson.
The 6-foot-4, 212-pound White started all 16 games in his rookie season, but was limited in 2016 due to injuries to Rodgers, wide receiver Davante Adams and cornerback Davon House.
He was replaced by Aaron Jones in 2017, but he struggled with injuries in 2018.
He missed two games this season due to knee surgery.
