Did a problematic knee have anything to do with Aaron Rodgers‘ decrease in production in 2015?
A few days after the season ended, Rodgers had a knee scope to clean up an injury, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of his situation. It’s not clear what he specifically had fixed, but it was described as minor and he should be ready for offseason conditioning. Rodgers told ESPN.com’s Jason Wilde that he’s “doing well.”
Rodgers, 32, underwent surgery on his left knee in 2004 to repair a torn ACL.
The 11-year veteran played all but 10 snaps for the Packers this season and was never listed on a team injury report with a knee problem. He was on the team’s Week 11 injury report with a shoulder injury, but he did not miss any practice time.
Despite a strong start to the season, Rodgers faded in the second half en route to setting career lows in passing yards per game (238.8) and completion percentage (60.7). He had 560 passing yards more in 2014 than in 2015.
