    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Played through fracture last season

    Aaron Rodgers revealed Tuesday that he played with a tibial plateau fracture in addition to an MCL sprain during the 2018 season, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.Adding to a history of left knee injuries that dates back to high school, Rodgers got hurt Week 1 against Chicago and aggravated the MCL sprain Week 5 against Detroit. He still was able to start 16 games, though he was removed early Week 17 with a concussion. The symptoms from the concussion cleared up by the beginning of February, and Rodgers opted for a series of shots rather than having surgery on his knee (he said he received the same shots in past years). The repetition of similar injuries is legitimate cause for concern in terms of his longevity and durability, but the 35-year-old quarterback said his body feels great for the start of Green Bay's offseason program. Rodgers will be working with new coach Matt LaFleur and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, hoping improved playcalling leads to better results from a personnel group that looks quite similar to last season's.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Enters offseason feeling good

    Aaron Rodgers said his troublesome left knee is feeling good and shouldn't have any impact on his offseason routine, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.Rodgers initially hurt his knee playing basketball in high school, eventually requiring an ACL reconstruction during college and a less complicated surgery after the 2015 campaign. It cropped up as an issue once again after his left leg was bent at an awkward angle Week 1 this past season, but he returned to the contest and ended up playing all 16 games. While it's quite possible the injury contributed to a disappointing season, the bigger issues in Green Bay were poor coaching, a terrible defense and a lack of pass-catching weapons behind Davante Adams. The Green Bay Packers seem to be headed for major changes during the offseason, starting with the hiring of Matt LaFleur as head coach and play caller. In addition to the optimism regarding his left knee, the 35-year-old quarterback recently mentioned that he's no longer dealing with symptoms from a Week 17 concussion. Rodgers should be a full participant when the Packers start their offseason program the first week of April.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Clear of injuries

    Aaron Rodgers (concussion) said at the NFL Honors event Saturday that he has no lingering injury concerns, Lindsey Pallares of WBAY Sports reports.Rodgers exited the season finale against the Lions after sustaining the concussion, tweaked his groin Week 15, and battled a bone bruise and MCL sprain for the bulk of the season, which resulted in him skipping last week's Pro Bowl. The veteran signal caller avoided surgery on his knee and is now resuming his regular offseason workout routine. The 35-year-old totaled 4,442 yards and completed 62 percent of his passes with 25 touchdowns and only two interceptions this season, as he'll look to return to his MVP-caliber form in 2019 with new head coach Matt LaFleur.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Pulls out of Pro Bowl

    Aaron Rodgers (concussion) has been ruled out of the 2019 Pro Bowl.The report didn't cite a specific injury, but Rodgers suffered a deep bone bruise and sprained MCL in his left knee Week 1, tweaked his groin Week 15, and sustained a concussion Week 17. The decision to skip the NFL's All-Star game may have been spurred by all three, but he would have been subject to the concussion protocol in order to play Jan. 27. While he threw just two interceptions this season and surpassed 4,000 passing yards for the seventh time in 11 years as the Green Bay Packers' starting quarterback, Rodgers posted his second-lowest completion percentage (62.3), worst touchdown percentage (4.2 percent) and took his third-most sacks (49). He'll be looking to bounce back in 2019 under the tutelage of new coach Matt LaFleur.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Concussion confirmed

    Aaron Rodgers has been diagnosed with a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game versus the Lions.The confirmation of a concussion marks the third of Rodgers' career, as noted by Jason Wilde of ESPN.com. As a result, Rodgers is in the protocol for head injuries and won't be eligible to speak with the media until he gains clearance from an independent neurologist, which clouds whether he may undergo knee surgery immediately after the season, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. No matter how the upcoming months go for Rodgers, he'll end his 11th year as the starting quarterback in Green Bay with 4,442 yards passing, a 25:2 TD:INT and 269 yards on 43 rushes (6.3 YPC).

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Being evaluated for concussion

    Aaron Rodgers left Sunday's game against the Lions to be evaluated for a concussion.If Rodgers is diagnosed with a concussion, it would be a fitting end to what has been a lost season in Green Bay. Fortunately for the quarterback, there won't be any meaningful game action for many months, so he would have plenty of time to recover. DeShone Kizer will fill in at QB for as long as Rodgers is sidelined.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Beats Jets with his legs

    Aaron Rodgers (groin/knee) completed 37 of 55 passes for 442 yards and two touchdowns while adding 32 yards and two touchdowns on five carries and running in a two-point conversion in Sunday's 44-38 overtime win over the Jets.Given how effective he was with his legs, it's safe to say Rodgers wasn't at all limited by the groin injury he picked up last week. The veteran quarterback's pair of passing touchdowns were a 49-yarder to Jake Kumerow and a 16-yarder to Davante Adams, the latter of which won the game in overtime. That game-winning touchdown was set up by a pair of one-yard Rodgers rushing scores in the fourth quarter. Owners who stuck with Rodgers through this down season by his lofty standards were handsomely rewarded in what was the championship round for most fantasy leagues. Oddly enough, Rodgers is the only quarterback in football history to throw for 400 yards and log two rushing touchdowns in a game, a feat he's now accomplished twice in his career. Rodgers will likely be productive in Week 17 as well given his history of dominating the Lions.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Expects to play after full practice

    Aaron Rodgers (groin/knee) expects to play in Sunday's road game against the Jets, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "I want to be out there with the guys, and I look forward to being out there," Rodgers said Wednesday.After the Week 15 loss at Chicago, Rodgers opened a can of worms by admitting he tweaked his groin, which he continued to play through while stretching out a number of times after halftime. Interim coach Joe Philbin commented on the situation Monday, telling Demovsky that the Green Bay Packers had no intention of shutting down Rodgers for the season, even with the playoffs not a possibility. Per Michael Cohen of The Athletic, Rodgers opened Week 16 with a full practice session Wednesday, ending any debate over whether or not the signal-caller will be out there this weekend.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Practicing Wednesday

    Aaron Rodgers (groin) took the initial reps during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.Rodgers' Week 16 availability against the Jets is in question due to a groin injury suffered in Sunday's 24-17 loss in Chicago. If he has his way, Rodgers expects to continue leading the Green Bay Packers offense for the final two games of the season, despite having no chance at a postseason appearance. That said, interim coach Joe Philbin told Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette earlier Wednesday the team will evaluate Rodgers all week before coming to a decision.

    Packers' Aaron Rodgers: Week 16 status still undecided

    Interim coach Joe Philbin relayed that he's "hopeful" Aaron Rodgers (groin) will practice Wednesday and added that the Green Bay Packers would take the full week to decide if the quarterback will play Sunday against the Jets, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.Rodgers tweaked his groin late in the first half of the Week 15 loss to the Bears, but ultimately stayed in the contest and finished with 25 completions on 42 attempts for 274 yards, no touchdowns and an interception -- his first since Week 4. With the loss officially ending the Packers' long-shot bid for the playoffs, there's reason to think the team could exercise some caution with its star signal-caller for the final two games of the regular season. Philbin noted earlier in the week that Rodgers won't be automatically shut down, however, so if the 35-year-old is able to log some practice reps by Friday, there's a good chance he'll be under center this weekend.
