Aaron Rodgers: I had a “very painful” knee injury, “scary” concussion

Getty Images

The knee injury that Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered in Week One last season didn’t keep him off the field for long, but it did continue to affect him.

Rodgers said on ESPN Milwaukee that his knee injury hurt long after he returned to the field to lead the Packers to an opening Sunday night win over the Bears.

“I had a tibial plateau fracture and obviously an MCL sprain,” Rodgers said. “So that was very painful. If you watch the hit back, just my two bones here that come together on the outside just kind of made an indent fracture. Very painful.”

Rodgers’ season ended early in Week 17 when he suffered a concussion in the final game of the season. He said that was a bad one.

“It’s disappointing how it ended, getting that concussion was disappointing and also a little scary, honestly. I couldn’t see. I lost vision,” Rodgers said.

Some thought Rodgers should have been sidelined for the season once the Packers were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention, and if he had been, he would have been spared that concussion. This year, keeping Rodgers healthy will be a primary concern for the Packers.

  1. Good Lord, man! What a drama queen. You play football for a living…rub some dirt on it, freakin cry baby.

  2. What is with the Packers being able to develop HOF quarterbacks and turning them all into divas?

  3. No one questions your toughness AR, I have seen you play hurt many games, GB is fortunate in that respect. Issue is your interpersonal skills, how you interact with your teammates is vital to Team success. It is up to you ,as the Leader, to promote and maintain a culture that is conducive to the concept of Team!

  4. Here come all of the absurd comments from the only state dumb enough to vote blue in 1984, about why having Kurt Cousins, is somehow better than having Aaron Rodgers. I mean, you really cannot fix stupid. The Land of Zero Trophies. Amazing.

  5. OK, it might be a first for me to say anything good about Rodgers, but if he played through a tibial plateau fracture then he is tougher than I give him credit for. I had the same injury back in 2002, and it sucked. Kobe was also out a few seasons ago with one, and nobody would question his toughness. Kudos to Rodgers for toughening it out.

  6. Too bad he couldn’t recover from a case of the greedy and leave some extra cap space to fill some of the many holes on the roster.

    If it was that bad, then stop playing.
    What, were you trying to save McCarthy’s job?

    This kind of thing from him is why no one respects him.

  10. you NEVER hear Brady talk about injuries, NEVER. You NEVER hear him make excuses, or throw teammates, coaches under the bus. You NEVER hear current or ex-teammates rip him. All that you hear from his teammates and ex teammates is that he works his ass off and only cares about the TEAM and WINNING. He also shows his teammates how much he cares about each of them, and you hear his teammates say they appreciate that, and that as a result they want to win FOR him. Brady is a LEADER, which is why he is the GOAT. Rodgers is the exact opposite of a leader, and to put him in the same sentence as Brady is ridiculous. Rodgers is an introverted, self involved, and insecure man. Not a leader

    ———————————————————————————-
    Concept of team… Like playing through injuries? Congratulating former teammates on their retirement and thanking them for protecting him? People take the rambling of two bitter players as gospel but ignore the countless current and former teammates that stand by him as a leader. Jennings likes to say how sensitive Rodgers is but he wont let go of a comment that was said years ago. Who is really the sensitive one? Just asking.

    Seriously, dude? You’re calling a guy who played QB in the nfl with a fracture in his leg to rub some dirt on it and yet your name is “Saints Got Robbed?” I think we know who the whiner is.

  13. Gotta love the Lion fans trying to talk smack! We don’t care about your regular season superbowls. Come back and join the discussion when your team is relevant.

  14. AR is a great player and QB, I hope he has continued success (just not against my team). I hope he doesn’t have any ill affects from that last concussion, that is not good. I still clearly remember that last seconds 4th qtr. Hail Mary game winning touch down he threw against the brain trust of Caldwell and Austin (the Dungy proclaimed defensive genius NOT!).

  15. Him and his complaining is the reason why last year they implemented that ridiculous body weight roughing the passer penalty after Anthony Barr hit him and crushed his clavicle on an innocuous hard tackle. Aaron Rodgers cried then and there on the field, yelling at Barr for hitting him so hard and also afterwards to the media. This is football, I’m sure many NFL QB’s that played in the 90’s and before are disgusted with him bickering about getting hit, those guys would get crushed in the head a whole second after releasing the ball and the referee would turn around and walk away. QB’s have it good now and days.

  16. Ah, is the reason now why you had a terrible last year? Or is it McCarthy? Or is it that you have no weapons? Or is it that GB has no defense? Or is it…fill in the blank.

    An awful lot of excuses coming out of GB – can’t they just say something like “we sucked last year, we’ll be better this year” and move on? I get that the media needs to prop AR up as a great QB, but this is getting ridiculous – next we’ll hear that he had cancer and beat it while donating a kidney to his brother…

    The fan worship in the state of Wisconsin is disgusting and unlike other cities in the NFL. And TV and other media are nothing more than cheerleaders. And if you are not the packers will not give you credentials.The fans follow suit they are never critical until a player leaves the team. That is why the players aren’t playing in gb anymore. I understand every market has their homers too just not like the cult members in gb.

    Your post and another Packer rube are the only posts to mention Cousins. I guess too bad for you guys but you’re right you can’t fix stupid you guys are unfortunately stuck this way. Sorry.

  20. Sorry to say it Packer fans….the last few seasons are the beginning and middle of the end. He was great. No doubt. But he doesn’t rebound from here. He shows flashes here and there….but steadily goes down hill, gets injured, whines a lot…and eats up your cap room for years.

    Have fun! The Bears and Vikings are the class of the North now.

    Sorry to say is right. Packer fans have been hearing this same wishful thinking every year, every season, for nearly three decades.

    Good luck with that.

  22. It’s funny Brady and Brees never hear a peep from them in regard of injuries.Why did Rodgers decide to make his injuries public is anybody’s guess but the Quarterback position is highest paid for a reason.Nut up or Shut up

    Green Bay is clearly a different market than any other sports market in America. Whoever the QB is (especially if they are HOF good) is more popular than This isn’t rocket science bud!

  24. GB fans… feel free to keep bowing down to a terrible human. Other fan bases are able to separate a man’s character from their football performance.

  25. you can’t wrestle with a skunk and win. best to just not respond to the media baiters and go win like the GOAT does. of course no one has ever been able to perform and win under pressure like the GOAT, but rogers is a good qb and just needs to change his mentality. just don’t respond to all the trash by giving them another click bait quote to “flesh out” with another garbage story.

    You are right that the Bears are the class of the division. Us Lions fans have a lot more hope now, especially as Minnesota and Green Bay prove to be irrelevant this season.

    I actually say something good about Rodgers and you guys still whine???

  28. I don’t think i’ve ever heard a pro-sports player whine about pain like this guy, as if he’s waiting for us to comfort and commend him or something. and verbally blaming injuries for losses and poor performance. Thank you Aaron for reminding people who don’t like you, why we don’t like you …

  29. Have to laugh at a lot of the comments on here. It’s amazing how many people don’t seem to grasp the idea that football players answer the questions being asked them. Reporters asked him about his injuries from last year, Rodgers merely answered those questions, and people go nuts over that. 100% comical.

  30. George Paras says: “It’s funny Brady and Brees never hear a peep from them in regard of injuries.Why did Rodgers decide to make his injuries public is anybody’s guess.”
    ————————-

    Right. Because no one knows why Brady missed the 2008 season or why Brees needed surgery in 2005. It’s such a big mystery.

    Or why did Brady say that ACL/MCL tear was so painful that he would not wish it on anyone (not that he ever said a “peep” about an injury the public never knew about…). Or why Brees would say Dr. Andrews saved his career from an injury no one knew about either…

  31. I feel so sorry for Aaron. I could cry. But I won’t. I don’t feel a thing really. We all know he’s old. And broken. Badly.

  32. I don’t think these comments were initiated by Rodgers as much as responsive to an interviewer. And geez, any concussion that results in loss of vision must be pretty damn severe.

  33. Aaron might recover. Maybe he has one good season in him left. He’ll play for his contract and endorsement money. But he still won’t help the team. He’s all about himself. Only. No one else. Just him. Alone. Too bad it’s a team game. Maybe he should take up golf. Or tennis.

  34. Funny how this is the first time we ever heard about a broken leg. If true, I’m sure it was very painful when it happened, but the guy never missed a game with it. He ran around just as much as he ever did before and the only time you saw a limp was after a bad pass. If you can play with an injury, I don’t want to hear excuses for why you played so bad. Sit out and let it heal if it’s as bad as you say. It clearly wasn’t.

    ……….and he STILL outperformed Kirk “Guaranteed” Cousins!
    __________

    Again, for about the hundredth time, I have to ask: In what way did Rodgers outplay Cousins? Not in wins and not in stats. Is there some other criterion you’ve made up to judge performance?

  36. The majority of the comments talking so much smack on this article are from fans of two teams who have exactly ZERO Super Bowl championships between them. LOL at the viking fans and now LOL at the Lions fans!!

  37. Dude answers a question, explains his injury, and is called a diva by guys who couldn’t hold his jock on their best day. Hilarious.

  38. Rodgers merely answered those questions, and people go nuts over that. 100% comical.
    —–
    Well, the average IQ of this country is said to be around 100….and you know we have quite a few very smart people, so there’s got to be a lot of them on the other side to balance things out.

  39. If it were that bad, he should not have come back after halftime in week one.

    Being healthy for the rest of the season was way more important that one game.

  40. So basically he played the year on a fracture that ended JJ Watt’s 2017.

    He’s not whining, asked and answered a question put to him by the media.

    As to cap hell, call me when his cap number this or last or next year is the highest in the league. It’s not. Compare the CAP number, not salary to Brady’s because it’s CAP number that affects what you can put around him. Been ham strung by ineffective FO for sure.

    Lions fans chirping, lol. ArR has more Superbowl wins that your franchise has playoff wins in the last 20 years combined…

    ===============================================================================
    Exactly! Green Bay completely collapsed when he was out the previous season. That should show exactly how good Rodgers really is. It proves he has carried the entire teams for quite some time, due to bad personnel moves & drafts. Rodgers says he briefly lost his vision and played with a fracture & these idiot commenters say he is whining or to man up.

    This reminds me of Dan Marino with the Miami Dolphins. Marino’s talent was wasted by the people making decisions on personnel. Marino keeps hearing about how he never won a super bowl, yet all he had was 2 receivers and no one else. Rodgers hasn’t really had any running game or defense for years now.

  44. “What a freaking cry baby!”, said a man who only leaves his couch when he runs out of bean dip….

  45. Healthy or injury prone at his age, it doesn’t matter because he is in decline either way. And with Rodgers not being to let things go, the recent article about him being petty and vendictive will only exacerbate his decline.

  46. When Aaron stubs his toe he alerts the media of his foot fracture.

    GB Fans: Your repetitive “Zero superbowls” comments are pitiful and sad. Get some new material and be self aware that your own last superbowl came so long ago that the equity has been long since used up. At this point you’re basically admitting you are okay with being the losers in the division in perpetuity because you had a superbowl win in the increasingly distant past. The rest of us hold our teams accountable for their play in the here and now!

  48. I am so glad Rodgers feels healthy. He saved two years wear and tear while unconcerned about other division teams. They all had their chance. You saw what happened. As the consummate professional he is, he’ll be more prepared than ever with the bulletin board material which categorized and mischaracterized him so woefully inaccurately. Maybe he does hold grudges. I hope he does.

    MM coached for over a decade in GB, thats quite rare in today’s NFL. People seem to love blaming Rodgers for his dismissal, but it had more to do with being stale his message, and much more so, his offense he was running, its part of the reason GB struggled the last few seasons.

  50. The Vikings broke his shoulder, the Bears broke his leg … I wonder how the Lions will contribute? After this season he should retire and go in pieces.

  51. This might be the wrong place to post this particular commentary, but it also happens to be where the greatest number of Vikingbtrolls and fans are hanging out.

    Did you see the headlines this morning regarding what a poorly designed stadium US Bank is? Did you see the crowds trying to move? They couldn’t! As I’ve said before, it’s beautiful on the outside. The inside is nothing but a cookie-cutter concrete bowl straight out of 1978 that just happens to have a pretty, shiny, translucent “cover” over it.

    A hundred times .. repetition is the solution here? Shall I “correct” Ariani on his continuous TT inconsistencies?

    Whether or not Cousins outplayed Rodgers, each quarterback led their team to a failed season – based on pre-season expectations. Whichever performance was “better” it wasn’t very good.

    You sir, have more to say. Just because Stellar insists on getting in the final word doesn’t always mean he makes the final point. Trust the reader.

  53. ??? What is up with the AR hate??

    He is one the best to ever play.
    Only problem is he can’t do it alone.
    He can’t do it without better line play and an offensive scheme from this century.
    He also needs a D.
    Give him that and you have the Wisconsin version of the Patriots.

    Actually, this is the first time you have ever provided a source. Now I have to explain to you that 3G’s article is a subjective ranking, which he readily admits. If you’re going to claim that one QB outperformed another, I’d be interested in seeing more evidence than one man’s opinion.

    The fact is, Kirk Cousins had a very disappointing year last year. But he still had two more wins than Rodgers. Remember when Packer fans cared about wins? Now it’s all about rankings from random NFL.com writers.

    Cousins 3/year 84M vs Rodgers 176M contract(134M 4 year extension through 2023), I think the vikings got a better deal. At least the Vikings can get rid of Cousins if he continues to flop.

    He threw for 4,442 yards, tossing 25 Tds against just 2 ints.
    Not to mention, he legged out another 269 yards, adding 2 Tds on the ground.

    And yet, a handful of purple trolls, who can barely lift themselves from their couch long enough to walk outside their double wides, have the nerve to call him selfish and a diva.
    Utterly hilarious.

  60. His injuries throughout the course of his career are just karma for the countless times he threw teammates under the bus and for holding a grudge against McCarthy and the Packers for not drafting him sooner. That’s so petty.

    Big talk about a team who has won as many Super Bowls as the Vikings. Fact remains that the Packers and the Bears are the only teams in the North win SB wins.

  62. Don’t let this story about Aaron Rodgers playing injured distract you from the fact that Kurt Angle wrestled with a broken neck and won an Olympic gold medal !

  63. Is Kirk Cousins better than Aaron Rodgers? It can’t happen in real life, but the way to test the theory would be to have Cousins quarterback the Packers and Rodgers quarterback the Vikings. If you’re a Vikings fan, would you reject that swap and keep Cousins instead?

    Doubt it, dude. The Vikes went the wrong way last year and paid $84 million guaranteed to do it and, just like Green Bay, didn’t make the playoffs. Chicago’s window ain’t big. They virtually traded two years of picks for Mack, who didn’t show up in crunch time against Philly, and they’ll soon have to pay Trubisky and will find out what life is like paying franchise qb money. Meanwhile, Green Bay locked up Rodgers and had over 30 million in cap space the following year, upgraded the defense and has two first round picks this year. Of the three Green Bay’s arrow is pointing up.

    I never said it wasn’t an opinion piece, but he lays out the logic and I just happen to agree with him. He’s a professional, he works closely within the industry. He may have even gone to the Tyler Dunne School of Journalism. That would make it gospel for you guys, wouldn’t it

  72. I don’t what is funnier, the comments from Lion’s fans or Viking fans.

    Let’s add up all their Superbowl trophies, wait, that’s unfair since the Lions never made it to a Superbowl, but the point is jealousy is ugly and it only looks worse when you are incompetent too.

  73. Translation ” I’m super tough and I would have won 3 super-bowls last year if I wasn’t playing with 1 leg and no brains. It’s about time everyone started to pay me the respect I deserve, not presidential respect I deserve more god-like respect. There really is no one better than I on the planet”

    This might be the wrong place to post this particular commentary, but it also happens to be where the greatest number of Vikingbtrolls and fans are hanging out.
    Did you see the headlines this morning regarding what a poorly designed stadium US Bank is? Did you see the crowds trying to move? They couldn’t! As I’ve said before, it’s beautiful on the outside. The inside is nothing but a cookie-cutter concrete bowl straight out of 1978 that just happens to have a pretty, shiny, translucent “cover” over it.

    A crowded stadium when you add extra seats and a bunch of people making bathroom/beers runs at the same time. Happens all the time when you add seats for a National Championship or Super Bowl. Look at Dallas, Arizona, Miami, Indy. It happens all the time.

    Not sure why you have to grasp at straws to put a team down. People do like Lambeau for the historical aspect of it, much like Wrigley Field. However, some cities would rather have a more modern stadium to attract events like this to provide additional influxes of income in the town rather than just 10 days a year. Just wish they could play easier teams like Green Bay who they beat every year in US Bank and not up and coming teams like the Bills lol.

  75. Ha ha! Are you kidding? I’m having a blast! Can’t wait for the season to get here.

    Wait what? He was “severely injured”? So a guy is healthier after a severe leg injury, terrible concussion, and broken collarbone? Why aren’t other teams encouraging their star players to get hurt and sit on the shelf while they age?
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    You mean like Adrian Peterson?

  77. for holding a grudge against McCarthy and the Packers for not drafting him sooner. That’s so petty.
    ——
    Dude has a SB win, 8 straight playoff appearances, 2 mvp’s and the passer rating record. Until recent injuries he’s been the best in the league. Rodgers has come out in support of MM, and McCarthy says nothing bad about Rodgers. But you read some dubious article and now it makes sense that the guy’s been carrying a grudge since 2005? Think about what you’re saying.

    The fact is, Kirk Cousins had a very disappointing year last year. But he still had two more wins than Rodgers. Remember when Packer fans cared about wins? Now it’s all about rankings from random NFL.com writers.

    Two more wins on, by your admission, a much more talented team than in GB.

    You can’t have it both ways..

    The Tyler Dunne piece is just as much opinion as this piece. Did he get interviews from TT, Mark Murphy, Mike Mccarthy, or AR?

    I know it suits your agenda more, but let’s be a little even keeled here. Relax man.

    ——————————-
    Lets see Adrian blew out his ACL then came back and had a historic season, he was 26. Completely different from a injury prone 35 year old.
    With Peterson he is 34 and injury prone and has been since 2016, which is why the Vikings, Saints, and Cardinals have all let him go. If you think your hurting feelings, sorry bud not a Peterson fan, haven’t been since his scandal.
    You said Aaron saved wear and tear by getting injured that is one of the most contradictory statements you can make.

    If someone’s opinion is favorable to the Packers it gets treated as gospel by some Packer fans. Very dopey.

    And yet you just walked out of the purple church of Dunne proclaiming “hallelujah”!!!!

    Come on man, you can do better….

  82. He should know better than to talk about his injuries. Nobody is going to given him any sympathy. I really think NFL players are tough and go through more than most people could ever go through to stay on the field, but talking about it does not serve them well at all.

  83. I try not to use profanity, but I would gladly use some toward those who are ripping Rodgers because he was injured last year.
    There is no question Rodgers was hurt in both instances and for people to call him names and question his toughness is sick.
    My question to all you keyboard bullies is this — if you’re so tough, how come you’re not playing QB in the NFL?

    That same thought process led to Aaron no longer talking to his long time roommate/buddy Kevin.

  85. “Green Bay completely collapsed when he was out the previous season. That should show exactly how good Rodgers really is.”
    ————————————
    What that shows is how bad the Packers actually are. The team is one player deep and has been for years.

  86. Wow….the Packer fans are so thin skinned. They cannot handle their little perfect utopia not being true. To function, Packer fans need to live in the delusion that they have the perfect franchise with the perfect stadium and the perfect fans and the perfect QB….etc.

    And when evidence shows that their utopic world is far from perfect….the house of cards comes crumbling down and the lashing out at Vikings & Bears fans begins.

    From a fan base that put a guy in their Ring of “Honor” just for being fat and out of shape.

    As opposed to a child predator who played TE for the packers.

    I know packer fans get triggered about anyone attacking their beloved team. But I never commented on the recent story by Dunne. Packer fans just throw a blanket on all Viking fans and say we all hate their team. Wrong, this Viking fan does not hate the packers, but some of the packer fans? I respond and react to their false comments. Kinda like yours. So……relax man.

  90. No way that he played through a tabia plateau injury. Add liar to the so called smear campaign. His family is likely fortunate not having this guy around.

  91. Cheesey…….you mean this guy?

    “We’ve been blessed in recent years with a series of sports personalities who just shout nonsense into the distance for views, ratings, or for love of the game. Many of them reside at Fox Sports, but few are better at spewing incoherent thoughts than Colin Cowherd.”

    It’s what he does. He throws stones in calm ponds just so easily influenced people like you will tune in. It’s not rocket science.

  92. It was funny watching him slowly limp back to the huddle after a bad play then skip around the field fist pumping after a good play. If you’ve ever played football you know that guy. He’s that guy.

    I like that guy. Two reasons……..1) He’s our guy , …..2) He annoys you.
