Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Smith's 2005 draft classmate, will play with a left knee sprain for the third straight week.
"You've got to prepare every day like it's a championship game", Washington safety D.J. Swearinger said. "What do you say to him on that?"
With a heavy sigh, Matthews said: "Nine years, I've been doing it one way in the National Football League, successfully, and now it just seems as if that way doesn't work anymore".
All things considered, the Green Bay Packers are off to an okay start.
"I'm going to need to see certain looks in the walkthroughs to replace those reps I may or not get in practice and try and get out there at least one day this week and feel good about the stuff we have moving on into Sunday", Rodgers said. "Take it week by week". However, by playing on it, it now appears there's a chance the injury could get worse. The more big plays Smith needs to come up with, the more likely he is to struggle against an improving Green Bay defense. Part of that is getting Peterson going like he did in Week 1, and this may be the ideal opportunity because his 1,779 yards rushing against Green Bay are the most of any opponent during his career. "I understand the spirit of the rule, I said that weeks prior". "Any game I'm a part of, I'm giving 110 percent".

In Week 2, a roughing penalty against Matthews wiped out a Packers interception that would have clinched a victory over the Minnesota Vikings.
Rodgers talked about his sprained left knee with reporters on Wednesday and admitted that he's anxious that the injury could linger.
"You could see it during the week: the focus, the determination", said Peterson, who rushed for two touchdowns. "What he's dealt with as far as the amount of change just speaks volumes about him as a football player and a person".
