Packers Injury Update: Aaron Rodgers injury not serious

By on 10/29/2014 09:30:00 AM

The Green Bay Packers bye week could not have come at a better time. Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers felt his left hamstring grab in the third quarter of the Packers week eight loss against the New Orleans Saints, causing the Packers to be conservative with Rodgers movement in the pocket to protect the hamstring from further damage. Rodgers was able to continue, but a week 10 bye is just what the doctor ordered.

Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel quoted head coach Mike McCarthy regarding Rodgers; "So far, so good I would say is how we're looking at it." He added, "They're very confident where Aaron is today."

McCarthy added that is was a great time for the entire Packers team to have a bye week, but did not say whether Rodgers would be in danger of missing time if they were to play this weekend. It appears that Rodgers did not have to stay in town during the bye to receive treatment.

If Rodgers were to miss some time, Matt Flynn would be thrust into the starting role. He performed well overall in 2013 while Rodgers was sidelined with a broken collarbone, but Flynn is no Aaron Rodgers.

When the Packers return from their week off, we should monitor his participation in practice prior to week 10. The Packers should provide an update early next week when the players return to Green Bay.
