Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers leaves game with potential concussion

Aaron Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers’ season may come to an end a bit early after suffering a potential concussion against the Detroit Lions.

Rodgers left the game early in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, and was replaced by backup DeShone Kizer a little less than midway through the quarter.

Rodgers had been just 3-of-5 for 26 yards before departing.

The Packers were down 14-0 when Rodgers left the field, and they have nothing to play for. With all that in mind, it may be that the Packers simply opt against bringing him back. While the quarterback himself won’t like it, there’s no reason to risk further injury in a meaningless game at the end of a lost season.

Aaron Rodgers explains why he won’t be shut down for 2018

Though the Green Bay Packers have been eliminated from playoff contention, Aaron Rodgers won’t be sitting out any time if he can help it.

Rodgers cited his competitiveness and desire to lead as reasons why he will refuse to sit against the New York Jets despite the Packers having nothing to play for.

One team out of playoff contention has shut down its quarterback for the season, but Rodgers isn’t hurt, even with a fragile injury history. The Packers and Rodgers both seem to believe that there’s more reason to keep Rodgers in the lineup than there is to sit him down and let him rest the remainder of the way.

Aaron Rodgers bothered by groin injury in loss

Aaron Rodgers did not look sharp in the Green Bay Packers’ loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, and the quarterback says he was bothered by a groin injury in the game.

Rodgers said after the 24-17 loss that he hurt his groin on a Hail Mary attempt before halftime and it bothered him in the second half.

Rodgers made some throws, but he missed plenty — many more than usual. He even saw his interception streak come to an end.

Rodgers talking about a groin injury after not playing well will probably lead many to recall the tweet a fired Packers assistant sent about the QB.

Aaron Rodgers has record INT-free streak come to an end

Aaron Rodgers had not thrown an interception in nine games entering Sunday’s contest against the Chicago Bears, but that streak came to an end during another tough game for the Green Bay Packers.

In the second half, Rodgers threw an interception for the first time in 402 passing attempts.

Rodgers hasn’t been at his best this season, and the results the Packers have seen reflect that. However, he has done a remarkable job of protecting the ball. That was quite the impressive streak.

In addition to having his impressive INT-free streak come to an end, Rodgers was also sacked by a defender who only used his back. It wasn’t a good day for the veteran quarterback.

Olivia Munn shares thoughts on Aaron Rodgers reconciling with parents

Aaron Rodgers has had a strained relationship with several members of his immediate family for quite some time, including his parents. Olivia Munn saw that first-hand when she was dating the star quarterback, and she is pleased to hear that it may no longer be the case.

Earlier in the week, Rodgers subtly revealed that he was spending time with his parents for his 35th birthday when he was asked how he found out about former Packers coach Mike McCarthy being fired.

“I found out I’m sure the same way most of you found out,” he said. “I was at home with my folks in town for my birthday.”

That actually turned out to be pretty significant news for Rodgers’ personal life. After he and Munn broke up, the actress confirmed that Rodgers’ relationship with his parents began to sour back in 2014. TMZ caught up with Munn this week and informed her about Rodgers saying his parents were in town to celebrate his birthday, and she said it was great news.

“If that’s true, it’s amazing,” Munn said. “It’s long overdue.”

Ed Rodgers, Aaron’s father, confirmed in an interview nearly two years ago that the two-time NFL MVP does not speak with members of his family, so something must have changed. Aaron’s brother Jordan also aired out some more Rodgers family drama on social media recently, which is even more reason why people were surprised to hear that Rodgers was spending time with his parents.

Rodgers hasn’t really said much about his personal life and has criticized his brother for making it public, so it’s unlikely he will comment on the situation.

Packers OLB coach Winston Moss fired same day as Aaron Rodgers tweet

Green Bay Packers outside linebackers coach Winston Moss was fired on Tuesday, the same day he sent a tweet about leadership for the team.

Moss had been a coach under Mike McCarthy during the former head coach’s entire Packers tenure. Early Tuesday, he sent a tweet about team leadership. He said the Packers need someone who will hold Aaron Rodgers and everybody else accountable.

9.5 hours after sending the tweet, Moss shared that he had been fired. The news was confirmed by multiple reporters.

Interim head coach Joe Philbin had the support of management in firing Moss.

There has been some thinking that Rodgers pushed for McCarthy’s firing. Moss seemed to show which side he was on.

Aaron Rodgers opens up about relationship with Mike McCarthy

Aaron Rodgers

There have been numerous reports that Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy were not on the same page prior to the head coach being fired by the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, but Rodgers insists the relationship between the two was — and still is — in a good place.

While speaking with reporters on Monday, Rodgers described McCarthy’s dismissal as “tough” and spoke about how the two have established a close friendship off the field. The quarterback also admitted he was frustrated by some of the reports about him and McCarthy clashing.

Rodgers said he had not yet reached out to McCarthy as of Monday afternoon, but he planned later in the day.

Even if his personal relationship with McCarthy is still on solid ground, Rodgers has been openly critical of Green Bay’s offensive approach on multiple occasions this season. He also seemed irritated with one of the changes that was made to the Packers’ coaching staff over the offseason. Between those remarks and the rumblings that he and McCarthy weren’t agreeing on playcalling, it’s hard to believe Rodgers won’t welcome the latest change from a football perspective.
