Rodgers clearly wasn’t himself in the second half of last night’s loss to the Saints. Some degree of hamstring issue left Rodgers limping slightly but noticeably after the 44-23 loss, but he insisted it wasn’t an issue. “I’m not going to miss any time,” Rodgers said, via Jason Wilde of ESPNWisconsin.com. “If I felt it, then I had to back off a little bit. We had to do a little more in the shotgun but it wasn’t a big deal, ultimately.” Reported by Profootballtalk.com
As Profootballtalk.com suggested, it certainly appeared to be an issue. His passer rating before the injury was 133.1. After, it was 45.8, with a pair of interceptions which weren’t entirely the fault of his legs. And any element of him moving, the way he did when he scrambled for a first down, was gone. Whatever the case, Rodgers didn’t even want to call it a hamstring pull, and said he felt like he could still play. “It was, ‘Continue playing.’ As long as I could hold up, I felt like I could and was able to run one in there somehow,” he said. “If it would’ve been real detrimental to my health for the season, I probably would have told Coach to take me out. But I felt like I could still go.” Again, Rodgers has a bye week to recover. We'll follow up as needed.
