Geronimo Allison: On a day filled with drops and general sloppy receiver play, Allison once again proved that he's more than reliable enough for Aaron Rodgers. This is of course easier said than done but at the very least, Hall has confidence that Washington's defense will step up against Rodgers.

Coming off a Sunday night victory over Chicago in Week 1 and playing 10 additional minutes against Minnesota in Week 2, coach Mike McCarthy scrapped practice in favour of a walk-through as his team began prep for the road game Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

"It's just going to be something you've got to deal with for a while", Rodgers said.

Rodgers expects to be dealing with the knee injury for a while, but doesn't now seem to be in any danger of not playing. "Any game I'm a part of, I'm giving 110 percent". "He gutted it out, moved out of the pocket more than I would have liked, but I really won't know the extent really probably until tomorrow". After all, he didn't hit the practice field ahead of Green Bay's Week 2 matchup until Saturday. "I understand the spirit of the rule, I said that weeks prior".

Matthews was called for roughing the passer on a sack on Redskins QB Alex Smith - and there are sure to be more questions about what constitutes a penalty on such plays.

More importantly, he's looking to build on an unheard-of streak when it comes to games involving the Packers or Redskins. "What can I do differently?"

Asked whether the injury would get worse if he continues to play on it, Rodgers sounded mildly anxious.

All things considered, the Green Bay Packers are off to an okay start.

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

Week 3 will go a long way toward helping fantasy football owners decide how those clear early observations play out. Washington has only tallied 33 points in the first two games of 2018. Jones gives the Packers another option in the backfield with his slashing ability.

Green Bay is still trying to get its offense going in the right direction. As for how the knee feels right now, it's clear that it's not ideal.

With the of shifting center Chase Roullier to left guard and inserting journeyman center Tony Bergstrom into the starting lineup. Redskins cornerback Josh Norman said.

For the third week in a row, Clay Matthews was charged with a roughing the passer penalty. In fact, he believes it will worsen the more he plays. Tierney specializes in National Football League analysis, and he is off to another hot start with his National Football League selections for SportsLine, hitting almost 60 percent of his picks so far this season. Muhammed Wilkerson (ankle), Bryan Bulaga (back), Nick Perry (concussion), and Justin McCray (shoulder) all left the game.
