Aaron Rodgers is already golfing after surgery, says his knee feels 'great'
The Packers quarterback appears to have recovered from his offseason knee surgery.
R-E-L-A-X, Packers fans. Aaron Rodgers' knee is just fine.
Less than a month after undergoing a "scope" on his knee, the Packers' quarterback hit the links at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, playing with professional golfer Jerry Kelly.

And, if that visual wasn't enough, here's verbal confirmation from Rodgers himself.
"It was just good to be out there walking normally," Rodgers said, per the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "It feels great. It's nice to not have any clunking around or anything, so it was good."
Rodgers underwent surgery after the Packers bowed out of the playoffs with an overtime loss to the Cardinals in the divisional round. At the time, ESPN reported that the purpose of the "minor" surgery was to "clean up" an old injury. Rodgers confirmed that fact at the golf tournament, telling the Press-Gazette that the surgery wasn't due to anything that transpired in the final game. Instead, Rodgers said, "It was for a clean-up of an old injury."
The surgery capped a disappointing season for the 32-year-old. In 2015, Rodgers posted career-lows in completion percentage (60.7), yards per attempt (6.7), and passer rating (92.7).
Oh, and Rodgers also ended up missing the cut this weekend.
