Minnesota Vikings center Pat Elflein will miss another week as the team's injury report lists him as out for Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers.

Elflein had surgeries on his ankle and shoulder this offseason and is still recovering.

The Vikings lost Elflein's backup Nick Easton to a season-ending injury in the preseason.

The team traded for New York Giants center Brett Jones two weeks before the start of the season. Jones started in the season-opening 24-16 win against the San Francisco 49ers.

No other Vikings players are expected to miss Sunday's game. Everson Griffen, who appeared on the injury report earlier in the week with a toe injury, is set to go for the rivalry matchup, according to the team.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. He left last week's game against the Chicago Bears on a cart in the first half, but returned in the second half to lead a thrilling comeback and give the Packers a 24-23 win.

Receiver Davante Adams and linebacker Oren Burks are also listed as questionable. Safety Josh Jones will not play.
