Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hopes to completely throw the use of his left knees when taking on Los Angeles Rams this weekend.
Rodgers has handled a left knee problem since he injured it against Chicago Bears in week 1. The 34-year-old initially had a big clamp on his knee that affected his mobility but used a smaller, easier clamp against the Detroit lion earlier this month .
The switch to this support was a promising sign until Rodgers suffered what he called a “backslash” as he hit a stroke from Detroit linebacker Christian Jones during the game’s opening operation.
Having hoped he would not have to go back to the greater thrill against San Francisco 49ers, it was like Rodgers helping Green Bay to make a remarkable 33-30 comeback win.
A hello week has followed, and although Rodgers hopes to practice Thursday, who missed Tuesday, it’s still “too early to tell” if he can play against the frames without a squeeze.
“It’s too early to tell. I mean I’d love, but it’s too early to tell you about this time,” Rodgers told reporters on Tuesday. “If I’m completely healed, I do not need a pinch Feel more comfortable without it. Of course, if you’ve had a knee injury for much of my football life, you’re obviously more protected. “
” You see some guys wearing it all the time without having a problem, but I’m just feeling comfortable without having it on. So if it’s not on, it means I’m fine and if that’s it, I’m not completely back. “
The packers, currently 3-2-1, will meet the unanswered the frames on Sunday as great underdogs.
The Los Angeles team is currently 7-0 on a regular basis and is 8.5-point favorites over Packers, according to SuperBook on Westgate Las Vegas – the biggest sum of which Rodgers has been an underdog since becoming a starter for Green Bay.
That game will be followed by a tough November when they meet New England Patriots, Miami Dolphins, Seattle Seahawks and Minnesota Vikings. For Rodgers, he can not remember a tougher stretch of league games.
“This is three division winners on the road and some tough tests for us,” Rodgers explained. “This week, of course, a really hot team and then go to Tom [Brady] and Bill [Belichick] and those guys [Patriots] amazing organization that obviously won a lot of championships, came home and played a tough Miami team on the way to one of the toughest places to play in NFL and then apparently a big divisierivalspel [against the Vikings]. It’s a tough stretch. “
” This is an important stretch in our season. I’m not going to say it’s going to be define our season, but it will definitely shake things when we get on the other side of this and come home in six weeks where we are in the race and what we are playing for. “
