Aaron Rodgers admits concern that knee injury will worsen
The status of Aaron Rodgers’ injured left knee remains very much up in the air.
On Wednesday, Rodgers voiced some concern that the knee will actually get worse as he plays on it, though he’s hopeful that the opposite will happen.
“Yeah, obviously that’s a concern,” Rodgers said of the worry, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “Hopefully it goes the other way though.”
Rodgers is trying to manage the injury, but improvement seems to be slow.
“It just depends on how the week goes with the rehab and the recovery,” Rodgers said. “Obviously, I’d love to be better than I was last week as far as health-wise but there’s some factors that are out of my control.”
Rodgers did improve last week, but didn’t practice, and isn’t likely to get much time on the practice field this week either. Right now it appears to be about managing the situation and trying to prevent it from getting worse.
