Aaron Rodgers hopeful to shed knee brace following bye

After Monday night’s comeback win over the San Francisco 49ers, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will have most of the next week off before returning to prep for the Los Angeles Rams in two weeks.

Rodgers is hopeful that when we takes the field against the Rams, he’ll be able to do so without a brace on his healing left knee.

“I just told (the) doc I’d love to take the brace off after the bye, but we’ll see how I respond tomorrow and this week and next week,” Rodgers said after Monday’s win. “Probably get some sort of image of it again, but that would be nice to be feeling great come next week Wednesday.”

Rodgers was injured in Green Bay’s season opener against the Chicago Bears. The injury has been reported to be a deep bone bruise and a sprained knee, though reports have varied on the issue.

Rodgers has not missed a start due to the injury.

  1. This news of Aaron getting the brace off after the bye should really trigger the purples. The Packers getting healthy. Anxiety is reaching high levels in Barneyville. You will see several jealousy filled and extremely butthurt type posts in every Packers thread over the bye.

    The Barneys all watched the game last night on their hands and knees praying the Packers would lose. Their little hopes were crushed. Poor Barneys.

    Let’s get this team healthy during the bye and come out swinging in 2 weeks👏👊👍

    Some things to clean up, but this team has a positive vibe going and they are very close in that locker room. Something special is building. Stay tuned👌

  2. For those crying about the penalty, please note that the Packers were penalized more than the 9ers, and that Rodgers still had to complete three passes after that. Rodgers ought to be getting some respect for the way he’s played through the injury, but everything these days has to be a con if you don’t like it.

  3. Why would the diva wear it anyway? There’s nothing wrong with his knee. It’s laughable how he’s just fine scrambling or rushing, but after he throws a bad ball, he starts limping. Comes right out of the huddle fine and dandy again. I don’t like him or respect him any more, great QB or not.

  4. What is wrong with the Packers’ offense has nothing to do with a knee brace but still, props to Aaron for directing a comeback at the very end.

    Seems the Pack need to win on a walk-off field goal or something similar solely because if the Pack’s defense is allowed back on the field to end a game, they’ll crap the bed.

    I see a lot of 2008 in this team. Aaron’s first year as starter. It was ugliness compounded and Aaron contributed to that somewhat but, I recall at least 4 games that year where it was a “pick ’em” situation as to whether the defense or special teams would collapse on the final series.

    When I say that Rodgers can’t keep beating the opponents defense AND his own defense in the same game — that’s what I mean.

  5. This guy was hobbling around like he was crippled when it was 4th and 23 for six seconds, then the flag came out and he was perfectly fine again. I’d normally not stoop to accusing players of milking injuries, but coooooome on with this guy.

    On the contrary, I knew all along the Packers would win. A terrible team can’t give Rodgers that many chances and expect to win. The one thing that surprises me is that you could watch that game and come away thinking that “something special is building.” Have you seen the schedule for the next five games? It ain’t exactly San Francisco and Buffalo you’ll be playing.
