GREEN BAY -- It's that time of year. There's a cold/flu bug going around the Green Bay Packers locker room, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers has caught it.

"I've got it," Rodgers said during his Friday press availability, adding he just needs "rest, fluids, all that stuff."

"It's kind of going around. Jordy had it, Mason had it. I've got it. But we're going to be okay," Rodgers continued.

The seasonal bug isn't all the Packers have to worry about. Five key players have been designated as questionable for Sunday's contest:

  • WR Jordy Nelson
  • WR Davante Adams
  • WR Geronimo Allison
  • S Morgan Burnett
  • CB Quinten Rollins

New NFL Comeback Player of the Year Jordy Nelson hasn't played since a Wild Card win against the New York Giants, when he took a nasty hit to the ribs. The green and gold's quest for the Super Bowl continues this Sunday at 2:05 p.m. against the Atlanta Falcons.
