Jay Glazer reports that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is dealing with a deep bone bruise a ligament strain that would typically keep players out a while.
Glazer adds that Rodgers is wearing a knee brace today and the Packers plan to monitor his knee and the swelling throughout the game.
Schefter says that Rodgers does not have ligament damage in his knee, but it still could take up to two months to heal.
Rodgers is specifically dealing with a “compression injury from blunt force while bent.”
“He has a pretty unusual injury that would keep most people out awhile,” a source tells Schefter.
The plan, for now, is for Rodgers to play through the pain.
“He shouldn’t have played last week and shouldn’t play now, but he likely will,” a source tells Schefter. “There will certainly be a short leash, like there was last week, but we saw what happened.”
Rodgers, 34, is a former first-round pick of the Packers back in 2005. He was entering in the sixth year of his seven-year, $130.75 million contract when he agreed to a brand new four-year, $134 million extension that includes over $100 million guaranteed.
In 2018, Rodgers has appeared in one game and completed 66.7 percent of his passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns.
