Aaron Rodgers appears to be recovering well from knee scope

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had arthroscopic knee surgery shortly after the team’s season-ending loss to the Cardinals in the playoffs.

The operation was described as a minor clean-up procedure that isn’t expected to have much, if any, impact on Rodgers’ preparation for the 2016 season. Rodgers’ schedule for this week suggests that’s an accurate assessment.

Rodgers looked fine while making the rounds at Super Bowl 50 and is scheduled to take part in the PGA Tour’s ATT Pro-Am event in Pebble Beach, California starting on Thursday. While there’s obviously a big difference between hitting balls in a golf tournament and playing quarterback in the NFL, you’d imagine that Rodgers would find another way to spend the weekend if there was a risk of damaging the knee.

Rodgers will pair with PGA Tour pro Jerry Kelly in the tournament and his foursome will have further football flavor with Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald and partner Kevin Streelman joining them for 18 holes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

    Not really. Rodgers can just stare down his driver instead of his wide receiver when something doesn’t go his way.

    He doesn’t really do this unless the WR runs the wrong route and does an out instead of an in. He expects preparation and accepts physical mistakes, but not mental mistakes because he holds himself to that standard.

    Meanwhile…..Teddy stares down his WR’s (usually locked on to one) and then overthrows him by 10 yards if it is anything less than a 5 pass.

  3. I wonder how much the knee will effect Rodger’s decision as to when to “flip the switch” and make a genuine effort as opposed to mailing it in like he admitted to in the regular season AZ game.

  4. Bad news for the rest of the NFL.

    ————————————–

    The rest of the NFL watched the Packers lose to Chicago, Minnesota and Detroit at home last season. The rest of the NFL gave a collective shrug at this news.

    Odd thing to say about the most accurate passer the the NFL.

    But anyways, I’m glad Rodgers has recovered from a procedure that only 99.99999999999999999999999999999999 percent of people have without any issues.

  6. I think it’s great that these two celebrity superstar players can get together for a good cause. Green Bay and Arizona are lucky to have them.

    Heck, some hapless and tasteless teams don’t even have any celebrity superstars.

  7. If he golfs anything like he plays football, there’ll be a whole lot of triple bogies on that scorecard.

    Teddy was not and is not the most accurate passer in the NFL. There are many higher than him over his career and he was 24th last year. Around 10th if you eliminate QB’s that didn’t start or throw many passes.
    ==================================
    I’m not sure where Vikings’ fans are getting this information that Bridgewater was the most accurate passer in the NFL last season. This is the 3rd or 4th time I’ve seen a Viking fan say this. It must be the same delusion that keeps them thinking that 14 TD’s or the 31st best passing game in the league is really good.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    Except he was – in his first full season as a starter. Check the stats from Pro Football Focus for QB Accuracy.

  10. Trivia Time!!!!

    1. Has never won a NFL OT game!
    2. Lead the league in fumble 6’s
    3. Has lost to AZ in every playoff game played
    4. His teammates hate him
    5. MN rocked him and he lost the division at home last season…
    6. Never won a road game vs a team with a win % of .522

    anyone guess????

  11. Rodgers is ranked by Golf Digest as the 37th (out of 100,) ranked non-golfer professional athlete golfer, with a handicap of 5.5.

    The Packer-hating Viking trolls can’t get anything right.

  12. Jealousy fueled Viking trolls are back in numbers. You’d think the fact the Vikings hold the all-time pre and post merger NFL postseason record for losses would temper their enthusiasm for taking the Packers to-task, but they can’t help themselves.

    How could their most recent addition to this ignominious record not be the first thing they think of every morning?

    They want to be us and they want what we have……that’s why.

    Ouch, spending 18 holes with the guy that ended your season. Just seems cruel of the PGA and ATT to set that pairing.

    Rodgers will just wear his Super Bowl ring.

  14. Of course Bridgewater is the most accurate. Even if only has the 10th best completion percentage in the league.

    Of course, when you don’t throw very many deep balls because you’re not good at it, and you limit your passes from 5-15 yards, any QB’s accuracy would be better.

    Of course, the result of that is throwing for only 200 yards per game, 14 TD’s, and the 31st best passing attack in the NFL- and defenses aren’t even game planning for him yet- they’re focused on Adrian Peterson.

    Here’s hoping that Teddy remains the most accurate passer according to Pro Football Focus- if he does, his numbers will be about the same as they are today.

    You know that the packers trolls are grasping for straws when they boast about her golf game!

    #1, this is a Packer story. We’re not trolling, you are.
    #2, who?

  16. Hope Fitz knows the heimlich, and Jerry Kelly can carry two bags when there’s 5 minutes left in the match.

    I sure hope Bridgewater’s injury is serious. After all, you Viking fans were overjoyed when Rodgers went down with a broken collarbone, so we Packer fans allowed to be happy about Bridgewater’s injury.

    I for one am happy to hear that Aaron Rodgers is recovering well. After all, to wish one serious injury is flat out despicable and classless.
