Aaron Rodgers didn’t want to admit shoulder, leg injuries

AP

Aaron Rodgers didn’t want to admit being hurt, because he thought it sounded like an excuse.

But when his name appeared on the injury report Wednesday, as being limited with a shoulder injury, he could no longer deny it.

It’s not an excuse. It’s a source of pride. I think that’s the difference,” Rodgers told Jason Wilde of ESPN.com. “Some people use the injuries as an excuse. But I think for the guys in this locker room who are out there battling, it’s a source of pride.”

Whether it explains his recent skid (he’s completing just 56.5 percent of his passes during the three-game losing streak) or not, it has to be a factor.

Rodgers also apparently suffered a leg injury against the Lions, though that hasn’t been documented on their report. But he wouldn’t say how long the shoulder had been bothering him, or if the injury came in the Lions game.

“Some people don’t like going in the training room and getting treatment. We want to be out there with our guys,” Rodgers said. “There’s a lot of pride in lacing it up every Sunday and knowing that it doesn’t matter what you’re dealing with, you’re going to play through it. We’ve all done it over the years.

“My thing is no more important than anybody else’s injury. If I feel like I give us the best chance to win by being out there and dealing with whatever I’m dealing with throughout my career, I’m going to be out there.”

So now that that’s settled, we can get back to finding out what the real problem is.

  1. It does sound like an excuse. Your making it even worse by trying to convince us it really is not an excuse.

    Aaron, your going to the HOF one day but your a whiny little b**ch.

  2. Nice try but he didn’t want to previously admit anything because no team wants opponents to know the full extent of any important player’s injuries if they’re expecting to still play. Unless a player is obviously playing poorly and/or benched and then injuries get used or exaggerated as an excuse – which is why we’re hearing about it now. Which is why injury reports are largely BS. NFL should just have reports on anticipated weeks away for injured guys who’ve missed at least 1 game – and even that’d be part-guessing.

  3. Oh my god enough of you. Guys get hurt all the time its just the way it is. Stop trying to play hero. I get it you want to play every Sunday but you’re only hurting your team by hiding injuries. Stop with the drama

  4. That’s because he waits for a 3 game losing streak or a playoff choke to use injuries as an exuse there Ace ! #exhonerated #pony up #skol Vikes

  5. Man this guy is a drama queen, wonder if he will find another excuse after the pack get crushed Sunday

  6. So the Packers have been cheating by not listing him on the injury report. Sounds like they will be losing a 1st rounder to me. Nm. They aren’t the Patriots

  7. My faith in the Packers is diminishing.

    When the tough get going, the Packers fall apart.

    The only interest the GM has is to keep drafting more young players.

    This is it.

  8. Welcome to the Vikes world Erin. Last year, Pack fans couldn’t brag enough about sweeping us, but considering we were without the league’s best running back, our starting qb, and 3 starting o lineman for both meetings….why would they have lost either game again? Yet, with all those injuries & adversity, we still played them even in round 2 and they eeked by, by a FG…lol! Cry me a river!

  9. If he were a coach, specifically John Fox, the media would be going nuts saying that he needs to report these things more and that there needs to be a full investigation into the Packers for hiding his injuries. And those calls would still be absurd.

  10. FTA: So now that that’s settled, we can get back to finding out what the real problem is.”
    ————————————————-
    Well I sure don’t know what the real problem is. But I do know he and Brady are by far the best two QB’s in today’s NFL. Both are real “gamers.” and with QB’s like this there is no reason both should not meet in the Super Bowl.

    He hasn’t looked good. But definitely better than whoever his backup is.
    ____________________________________

    The funny thing is, you truly can’t say this about your teams QB situation.

  12. Packers will win this weekend. People are overly excited about a premadonna viking team, while kicking a packers team who lost 3 straight. They’ll come out strong this weekend and show the world who still owns the north.

  13. Dock the Packers a 1st round draft pick. This is cheating,no? Oh,and throw in a huge fine,too. Maybe suspend him…he’s compromised the “integrity of the game.”

  14. Packer and Vikes fans spend more time obsessing over each others teams while at the same time never admitting that their own team might not be that good at any point of any season no matter their records. And I thought Seahawk fans were annoying. SMH

  15. You can either be a whiner like Roethlisburger and treat every hangnail like it’s a broken spine, or you can be like Andrew Luck and lie about your injuries which is clearly cheating. Your call.

  16. This is just Rodgers subtle way of reminding the refs that he is made of extra special glass, so they better protect him from the big bad Vikings on Sunday. Expect no less than two free 15 yard “roughing” calls when those upstarts put him on his bum.

  17. I am a Bears fan, but also Aaron Rodgers fan. He is still the best QB since Montana, so when he is hurt ,the rest of his team has to step it up. I hope that they don’t do it Dec 6 and Bears win that game, but hope that they beat the queens on Sunday.

    ______________________________________

    Who was bragging?
    Beating the Vikings last year was no big deal.
    They were a sub .500 team without a single significant win last year.
    And I’m still waiting to see the Zimmer/Bridgewater tandem notch one this year.
    Perhaps they’ll finally get over that hump this Sunday.

    Injuries happen. Every team, every year.
    No excuses, Green Bay put 15 players, several starters, on IR in 2010.
    And then went on to win the Super Bowl.

    Missing your starters?
    There wasn’t a difference maker on your roster, sans Peterson, who was going to change the 42-10 victory in the 1st meeting.

    The 2nd game wasn’t eeked out by a field goal, nor did you play us to even.
    The Vikings were losing by 11 and needed a late TD/2 pt. conversion with 3 minutes left to make it close.
    The Vikings never saw the ball again.
    But hey, whatever helps you sleep at night.

    Cry me a river?
    Seriously, nobody cries better than the Viking fans.
    And trust me, your tears are delicious.

  19. Wow, lot of dumb comments from fans of a team whose qb is also on the injury report. Can’t wait til the pack shuts you fools up on Sunday.

  20. He didn’t seem to mind exaggerating a leg injury last year?? I guess that is because he was playing well. Now that Arrogant Aaron isn’t dominating there must be a reason..

    Not a vikings fan but I hope they crush the Pack sunday

    ************************************

    The Packers have just been renting the division.

    All time ownership belongs to the team that has dominated the division.

    That’s the Vikings.

    Out of 45 Division Championships, the Vikings have 18, the Packers 14, the Bears 10 and the Lions 3.

    The Packers cute little streak of 4 in a row is only the third best in the division. The Bears have 5 in a row.

    And the Vikings have 6 in a row (this was after a one year lapse when they had 4 in a row).

    Thanks’ for playin’… 😀

  22. Bottom line is that the Packers can’t beat physical teams. And that’s been their M.O. for the last 5 years.

    When Frisco was THE physical team in football, they owned the Packers. When the Seahawks were THE physical team in football, they owned the Packers.

    And now the Panthers are THE physical team in football and they manhandled the Packers.

    Their are few above average physical defenses in the league this year so it will be another year of excuses at the end for the Packers.

    McCarthy has proven that if it wasn’t for Rodgers, he wouldn’t look anywhere near as good as he looks. Because McCarthy is an average coach at best.

    Rodgers winning of a Super Bowl was obviously a fluke.

  23. Trying to understand the hatred for a guy who is trying to play through injuries. When he is forced to admit it, he is accused of using it as an excuse? That’s exactly what he DIDN’T do!

  24. But why is it that when ever the quote unquote elite QB’s struggle oh it because of an injury… Why cant it be that Defenses finally have just caught up to them… Give credit to the defense for once… Indeed…

  25. Well, admitting to shoulder and foot injuries just placed a bigger target on Rodgers. If I was a Def Coordinator, I’d make darn sure he gets hit early, often and non stop. Take the guy out. It’s the NFL way after all.

    He should of kept silent or gone on IR.

  26. What a hero. Nor does he want to admit that when teams go man coverage on his slow receivers his ego and arm both go in the toilet? Jordy saved him from that with being able to go deep but without him or anyone, apparently Nelson is the only fast receiver in football since Ted has not replaced him, Rogers has shown to be just an average or less than average QB.
    Ya he got 300 yards last week, against the worst pass defense in football and struggled to do that.

    He played on 1 leg last year in the playoffs too.

    oh right….the over done fake calf injury

    =======================================
    That really says, hey the other guys on the bench are not as good as me limping around out there.Ya nothing wrong with that ego except they lost a game that should have been a shoe in after 3 interceptions in the first half in there territory. Worst coached game in football history maybe

  28. If the injury was before the Lions game, and it wasn’t reported, wouldn’t that be a violation of league rules…aka “cheating”? If so, it would stand to reason that Rodgers was “generally aware” of the injury?

    =========================================Packer fans are missing the bigger picture. His throwing the ball in the dirt on numerous occasions didn’t bring the coaching staff to think, gee maybe something is wrong. Ya this is the reason they may not even make the playoffs. I see three losses in a row coming up for gimpy.

  30. C’mon, Get your moneys worth PACKER HATERS.
    Get it all out while you can. You know you love to post some digs at Aaron and the boys. Why not ! Heck, it isn’t often the PACK loses 3 in a row.
    Get it all out there folks. Vikings fans, Bears fans, and the rest of you who hate winners. Maybe some day your team can WIN 3 in a row.

  31. “Some people don’t like going in the training room and getting treatment. We want to be out there with our guys,” Rodgers said. “There’s a lot of pride in lacing it up every Sunday and knowing that it doesn’t matter what you’re dealing with, you’re going to play through it. We’ve all done it over the years.”

    I read all the comments and it seems like everyone blew right past this quote that jumped out at me reading the article. If he didn’t seek treatment for an injury or make it known to the training staff that seems irresponsible, not ‘soft’. It is also not excuse making or cheating, no treatment means no reporting. It also means lessening the chance of improvement for the condition.

    There is a staff of professionals whose sole function is assist players heal as rapidly as possible and physically perform as best they can. It is not leadership to be a he-man when it prevents a player from seeking treatment that might improve his performance, it is foolishness with perhaps a side order of hubris.

    Hilarious. Why are NFL fans the most delusional?

  33. the media is a joke… Every player is banged up this time of the year. A lack of a rushing attack and poor pass protection are the two biggest reasons why he’s struggled the last month.

    Denver exposed the Packers weakness on offense.

    Even the Lions were able to shut them down until garbage time.

    Being held t0 3 points for most of the game against the Lions is a very embarrassing to a team that prides themselves as a very offensive (pun intended) team.

    The Packers only started to move the ball in garbage time against a prevent defense. The Lions tried to give the game to the Packers, but the Packers offense refused to take it… 😉

  36. So we can add the Packers to the list with the Colts and Broncos of teams hiding QB injuries. At some point Vegas is going to make a call to Goodell about this. Mustn’t upset the gambling public.

    So he is admitting to cheating and now because that did not work it is time to try something else. Excuses.
    ————————————————–
    He did last year too. Has been his entire career. He’s okay with deliberately over inflating game balls knowing officials wouldn’t catch it. Of course the NFL let his admission pass because of the lamest excuse ever. He said it at a time not immediately before, during or after a game. Think about that for a minute. The NFL makes me want to puke the way they are ruining the league.

    Oh do you? Does a Bears fan realize that with a Packer loss and a Bears win this weekend, that the Bears will be one game behind the Green Bay Rodgers?

  39. Maybe Rodgers is trying to gull the Vikings into thinking he’s hurt.
    I hope so (that it’s a sham).
    I hope he brings his A game.
    I think this year’s Viking Defense can Rock Aaron’s world even on his best day.

    I for one think the Packers will “bring it”.
    And I think this year’s Viking team will handle the them and send them “Pack-ing”.

  40. Personally I wish there were no injuries on either team and the refs do an outstanding job on Sunday.

    All that is going to happen though is a ton of excuses from the losing team and a ton of bragging from the winning team.

    Glad I’m on the winning teams side!

    SKOL

  41. You guys have been ripping Jay Cutler for years now and you don’t even know why.

    You claim that it is his sideline demeanor or body language but ignore Aaron’s pouting, eye rolling and standing alone with his arms crossed like a little baby.
    Cutler does not blame a loss on a “hidden” injury or even him being a Diabetic for that matter.
    He does not throw his teammates under the bus when he fails.
    He does not blow past a cancer patient with his headphones on. He actually visits kids with cancer but chooses not to make it a P.R. event to promote himself.
    He does not go on some stupid rant defending his “friend” for taking PEDs and keeps his personal opinions to himself.
    He did not respond to Brandon Marshall’s dumb comments in the press.
    His girlfriend (now his wife) does not get into battles with the press if he has a bad game.
    He probably takes more cheap shots than any other QB in the NFL and is not constantly whining to the officials.

    Are you finally starting to see the truth about both Rodgers AND Cutler?

  42. I feel sorry for Aaron Rodgers, he didn’t want to admit he threw for only 77 yards. Aaron Rodgers didn’t want to admit that he’s on the decline, either. I don’t blame him.

  43. Trolls are out in full force. Yet I remain optimistic that GB remains more than relevant. What else would explain all the attention? Y’all come back on Monday, hear? No wait – that’s not what trolls do, is it.

  44. It still amazes me how ignorant of the rules so many of you are. If a player discloses an injury to the team, misses practice time or is limited in practice, and/or takes treatment for said injury, the player must appear on the injury report.

    If a player is a little sore, as they all are halfway through an NFL season, but doesn’t disclose an injury, miss time, etc, there’s no way for the team to add the player to the injury report now is there?

    Keep grasping at these various straws, purples.

  45. “It’s not an excuse. It’s a source of pride. I think that’s the difference”

    No, Erin. It’s an excuse.

  46. Mark my words. The Vikings will send the house until Erin can prove he can beat them in single coverage. Up until this point in the season, he hasn’t proven that to anyone. It might be a long day for the GB faithful. One can only hope. SKOL

    Probably because there were never only 6 teams in the NFL? Not even close. Not to mention the fact that with a smaller league, the talent per team is deeper than when it is spread out among 32 teams, so who cares?

    I’m not so sure about that. Rodgers has really been struggling with his throws. I can see the Vikings rushing 4 and playing max coverage, and seeing if Rodgers can find the open guy and thread the needle. Of course, a few well timed blitzes are a guarantee.

    What a difference three weeks make.

  57. Viking fans logic: When the Vikings are without Peterson, they have a gripe. When Rodgers is injured, Packer fans need to “stop making excuses.” Does the word “hypocrite” mean anything to you folks?

    He’s only been to one SB? Weird. Reading these blogs, it seems like Rodgers has won more SB’s than Trent Dilfer and Brad Johnson. Well, he’s 8 years older than Bridgewater, so I guess Teddy has some time to match AR’s record of one.

  65. Well, he’s 8 years older than Bridgewater, so I guess Teddy has some time to match AR’s record of one.

    The same Teddy that you are talking about as the future star based on the last 5 games last year and has a worse passer rating than his rookie year?

    It’s pretty obvious that Teddy is a bust. Tavaris Ponderjack 2.0. He’s like Wilson being carried by a run game and defense, without the skills.

  66. Funny how when he struggles, here’s a ready made excuse…..

    Face it, he’s stinking up the joint right now.

    And the chokers have lost 3 in a row.

    Choker fans don’t worry…you always have the past to lean on.

    We are the future.

  67. The Vikings are young and will only get better. This isn’t even their year. Next year and 2017 will be better.
    —————

    So by that logic, since the Packers are again one of the youngest teams in the NF AND younger than the Vikings, so they will only get better, right?

    The Packers are the 3rd youngest team. The Queenie’s are the 8th.

  68. So lets take a look at the win / loses for this “dominate vikings team”

    Lost to the niners..
    Beat the Lions…
    Beat the Chargers..
    Lost to the Broncos..
    Beat the chiefs in a close one (no charles for Chiefs)
    Beat the lions…
    Beat the bears..
    Beat the Rams..
    Beat the Raiders..

    Looks like they’ve played all junk teams minus the Broncos… Only 7 TD passes? 7 games to go.. dont get your hopes up quite yet.

  69. If you think you hurt now, wait until Monday morning! One hit by Linval Joseph and that shoulder will really ache!

    So by that logic, since the Packers are again one of the youngest teams in the NF AND younger than the Vikings, so they will only get better, right?

    The Packers are the 3rd youngest team. The Queenie’s are the 8th.
    —————–
    Since your team is winless in the past month, yes, they will only get better. Because it’s impossible to get worse than their 0 for November.

    Well, he’s 8 years older than Bridgewater, so I guess Teddy has some time to match AR’s record of one.
    ——————–

    The same Teddy that you are talking about as the future star based on the last 5 games last year and has a worse passer rating than his rookie year?

    It’s pretty obvious that Teddy is a bust. Tavaris Ponderjack 2.0. He’s like Wilson being carried by a run game and defense, without the skills.
    ————-
    Teddy and the Vikings are 7-2 this year. The Vikings are 5-0 in the games where Teddy passes for less than 200 yards. They are 1-0 in games where he passes for over 300 yards.

    It shows he can play within the system and get wins, and also sling it around when needed to get a win.

    It’s called being a “complete team”. Would I swap TB for AR today? Sure. Would I swap the Vikings team for your team? No way. It’s why one of the best QB’s in the game today has exactly one Super Bowl under his belt. Your team is one dimensional. It’s why they lose in the playoffs. When there aren’t any more easy teams to pick on, AR and company fold.

  73. And everyone thought Favre was the drama queen!

    I don’t think I ever heard/read Favre complain about an injury/being hurt.

    As Bill Parcell’s said about Terry Glenn…..”she’s getting better!”

    I scoured the internet and cable tv for any NFL analyst to declare “Bridgewater is a bust”. Or any negativity towards Bridgewater at all. I came up empty. But a Packer fan declares it, so it must be true.

  75. Sure are a lot of stupid people on this thread. Rodgers freely admitted that the balls were over inflated BEFORE they were given to the refs to check, knowing that the refs would let out some air to bring them within the psi range for the balls and that they would probably still be at the top end of the scale, but not over inflated as some of the spanners on here seem to think.

  76. Packers really need this win. Much more so than the Vikings. If the Packers lose, they will have a 1 game lead for the last wild card spot, over many teams. 1 game! For the final playoff spot!!!

    To put it another way, if the Vikings take a two game lead, the Packers will have to start rooting for them to win against teams like the Falcons and the Seahawks, just so the Packers can maintain their wildcard spot.

    Don’t waste your time trying to say that. Viking fans will just thumbs down the hell out of it, facts be damned.

    If the Vikings can pull off a victory at home, their fans will be able to crow about being 2-10-1 against the Packers since 2008.

    Wooooohoooooooo!

    So you look back on your high school yearbook as often as you do Packer records?

    I don’t know where you get your stats but here is the true difference from the NFL.

    The Pack’s average age is 25.42 years vs, the Vikings at 25.96.

    To put it in terms you can understand it about a 1/4 of a bratwurst in a case! Here is a quote from ESPN

    The Minnesota Vikings’ roster has been among the NFL’s youngest since 2011, when the team embraced a draft-and-develop strategy. And even with the addition of players like 37-year-old Terence Newman and 35-year-old Shaun Hill to the roster, the Vikings will once again be one of the NFL’s most youthful teams and ranked at number 4.

  80. Aarogant Rodgers is the biggest sissy-la-la in the game. He cries to the refs for penalties more than any other… Including Brady.

    He’s not using injuries as an excuse Yet he is.

  81. Aaron will move up the list this weekend. He will go from injured to injured reserve . The Viking defense is relentless

  82. If Aaron is injured, his injuries aren’t gonna get any better against the Vikings D, ask Matt Stafford and Philip Rivers.

    If the injury was before the Lions game, and it wasn’t reported, wouldn’t that be a violation of league rules…aka “cheating”? If so, it would stand to reason that Rodgers was “generally aware” of the injury?
    ——————————————————————-
    It doesn’t end up on the injury report when the player doesn’t report it. Tough guys can suck it up. Whiners try to find excuses, like you MIKE !!!!!!!!
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    I really don’t care for the injury report. I’d rather let the players and teams deal with their injuries. You should learn to pick up on the concept of “tongue in cheek”.
