Packers QB Aaron Rodgers feels 'great' a month after knee surgery
Sunday February 14th, 2016

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says that he is walking normally and feels “great” just a month after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, reports Garrett Johnston of the Green Bay Press Gazette

Rodgers, 32, said that he had the procedure done on his knee immediately after his teams 26–20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC divisional round. He says that the damage in his knee isn’t from a recent injury, but from one that lingered from the past.

The knee felt good enough that Rodgers was able to compete at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am on Saturday.

“It was just good to be out there walking normally,” Rodgers said to the Press Gazette. “It feels great. It’s nice to not have any clunking around or anything, so it was good.”

Rodgers hasn’t missed a game since suffering a broken collarbone in 2013. 

Last season, Rogers completed 60.7% of his passes, throwing for 3,821 yards, 31 touchdowns and eight interceptions.
