McCarthy: Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers 'day-to-day', cornerback Kevin King unlikely to play

GREEN BAY -- The coach of the Green Bay Packers says that one of his key cornerbacks will probably miss Sunday afternoon's game in Washington.

Mike McCarthy told numerous reporters including WTMJ's Doug Russell that the groin injury to Kevin King is not expected to be long-term.

He also said that quarterback Aaron Rodgers remains in "day-to-day" mode with the recovery for his left knee injury, which he played with in both their win over the Chicago Bears and the tie with the Minnesota Vikings.

McCarthy became emotional when describing how his team is coaching defensive tactics including tackling after the roughing-the-passer penalty against Clay Matthews in the late 4th quarter of the Minnesota game, despite following coaching based on league policy.

"We're not trying to break any rules or skirt, be on the edge of the rules," said McCarthy.

"Clay's intention was correct. He braced himself. What he attempted was correct. The opinion of anybody else, it's irrelevant."

He said he's using a walkthrough for his players instead of a full practice on Wednesday.
