NFL Notes: Aaron Rodgers, 49ers, Rams, Redskins

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers said that he initially thought he tore his Achilles during Sunday’s win over the Lions.

My initial thought was I popped my Achilles,” Rodgers said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

Rodgers added that he still isn’t sure how healthy he’ll be, even with an extra week to heal in time for their playoff game.

Can’t say either way what percentage it will be,” Rodgers said, “but I hope it’s going to be feeling better than it was last weekend.”

49ers

Rams

  • QB Sam Bradford told reporters on Tuesday that after his most recent knee injury, he was so low mentally that he wondered if he still wanted to play football. (Jim Thomas)
  • Bradford added that he has no problem with Rams bringing in a quarterback in next year’s draft or in free agency. (Jim Thomas)
  • HC Jeff Fisher said that some “contractual things” need to be worked out with QB Sam Bradford. (Nick Wagoner)
  • Fisher confirmed that they will bring in a quarterback who’s “not in the building now” to compete for the job. (Jim Thomas)
  • Nick Wagoner mentions that changes to the Rams’ coaching staff likely would happen if coaches leave for other opportunities.
  • Fisher said he isn’t sure if LT Jake Long (torn right ACL) wants to play again next year. (Jim Thomas)
  • Fisher added that Greg Robinson will take over as the team’s left tackle in 2015.

Redskins

HC Jay Gruden explained his thinking for how he handled the Robert Griffin III situation this year to John Keim of ESPN and admitted that “all hell broke loose” during a team meeting.

“I sat down and explained some things: “It came out today, I said this or that and that’s not what I meant.”  The big thing was the time where I challenged his fundamentals and didn’t like him and all that stuff and there was an issue at a team meeting where something had to be said and unfortunately all hell broke loose. The one thing he’s got to understand is that he’s the quarterback and I’m the coach and we won’t always agree in what I do as far as taking him out of games, but he has to understand I have his best interest and the team’s best interests at heart. That’s it.
