Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had a legitimate reason for skipping the Pro Bowl.
Not that we give a shit about the Pro Bowl, but Rodgers (or the Packers, on Rodgers’ behalf) cited an injury as the reason QB1 wasn’t participating. And that’s all they said.
No explanation as to what the injury was or if it even legitimately existed.
That may sound bad, but it isn’t.
The procedure has been described as minor and was actually done to clean up an old injury.
Rodgers was never listed on the Packers’ injury report with a knee injury during the 2015 season. So, if anyone tries to sell you on the idea that this contributed to his subpar season, you should dismiss them.
Rodgers is expected to be available when OTAs begin.
