We suggested last week that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers must be recovering well from arthroscopic surgery on his knee because he was scheduled to play in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this weekend.
Rodgers confirmed as much after completing a round with PGA Tour pro Jerry Kelly when he said his knee is feeling well less than a month after having the procedure.
“It was just good to be out there walking normally,” Rodgers said, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “It feels great. It’s nice to not have any clunking around or anything, so it was good.”
Rodgers said the surgery was done to clean up an old injury and that there wasn’t a specific “moment” that he hurt it before the Packers season came to an end with a 26-20 overtime loss to the Cardinals in the playoffs. Rodgers had knee surgery while in college, but hasn’t had issues in that area as a pro and appears to be on track for a normal offseason of work despite last month’s scope.
