620WTMJ's Doug Russell gives a full report on the Packers practice day Thursday. Watch in our video player.

On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers disclosed that MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a shoulder injury.

On Thursday, head coach Mike McCarthy disclosed his lack of fear that Rodgers would miss Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings.

"No concern," said McCarthy in his Thursday news conference. Indeed, Rodgers had full participation in Thursday's practice.

McCarthy also updated that Eddie Lacy was expected to go through a full padded practice, which he did.

The full injury list:

Did not participate:
- WR Jared Abbrederis (rib/chest)

Limited participation:
- T David Bakhtiari (knee)
- T Bryan Bulaga (knee)
- LB Jayrone Elliott (ankle)
- DB Micah Hyde (hip)
- G T.J. Lang (shoulder)
- LB Clay Matthews (ankle/knee)
- WR Ty Montgomery (ankle)
- G Josh Sitton (knee)

Full participation:
- S Morgan Burnett (ankle)
- WR James Jones (quadricep)
- LB Mike Neal (hip)
- LB Nick Perry (shoulder/hand)
- QB Aaron Rodgers (right shoulder)
- RB Eddie Lacy (groin)
 

McCarthy also said that despite the lack of offensive success in the last three games, he is not changing play-calling roles with his team and leaving Tom Clements in that role.

"Everybody's job description is the same as when we put it together in the spring," said McCarthy.

After being playcaller with the offense in the past, McCarthy is playing more of a CEO's role this season.

"I move from room to room," he said, admitting that this week with the team's offensive struggles - just 18.3 points per game, a far cry from their league-leading 30.4 points per game last year - have led him to work more with the offensive unit.

"I've spent a majority of my time starting this week on offense."
