From the Associated Press:

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers came out of Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings with a sprain on one foot and sprained toe on the other.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says Rodgers could miss time in practice this week but is expected to play Sunday at Tampa Bay without hurting his mobility.

It's been a long year for Rodgers. He has been sacked 31 times overall -- worst in the NFL -- including six by Minnesota on Sunday.

Rodgers was limping after the game but said he expected to be OK after a few days.

McCarthy also says linebacker Brandon Chillar has a broken hand and was scheduled to have surgery Monday. He is expected to miss at least two weeks.
