Reports: Aaron Rodgers not at Packers practice Tuesday

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Aug 20, 2013 - UPDATED: Aug 20, 2013

GREEN BAY - Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was not at Packers practice on Tuesday, but apparently, Packers fans shouldn't panic.

The Journal Sentinel's Tom Silverstein gave the first inklings of the real reason.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy later explained Rodgers was "held from practice due to an illness...I fully expect him to practice tomorrow.""

According to ESPN writer Rob Demovsky and others who initially reported it, there was also no cause for worry.

The story exploded, however, among Packers fans in the Twitterverse. Tweeters had some fun with it.

(Kudos to Brian Carriveau of Pro Football Draft Review and CheeseheadTV for coming up with the hashtag.)

Stay tuned for the real reason, and in the meantime, check out a photo gallery of the Packers superstar quarterback.
