Looks like Aaron Rodgers is back on the mend, and he didn’t even need surgery this time around.
“I feel great,” Rodgers said on NFL Network. “My body feels really good. Instead of getting surgery postseason, decided to kind of go through a different routine with my knee than I’ve done in the past, and I’m feeling really, really good. Got a concussion the last game, that’s cleared up. I’m feeling really good. I’m getting back into my workout routine, but the first month of the offseason is a lot about yoga and traveling.”
“Instead of getting surgery post-season, (I) decided to kind of go through a different routine with my knee than I’ve done in the past,” Rodgers said. “And I’m feeling really, really good.” https://t.co/5j3Qjamg0n

Rodgers did not elaborate on his routine.
He last had surgery on that knee following the 2015 season. That procedure was described as a “cleanup of an old injury.”
That’s the same knee on which Rodgers had ACL reconstruction done during college at the University of California, stemming from a high school basketball injury.
“It’s the lead leg, the plant leg, it’s not the brace or the back of the drop leg, which I haven’t had, thankfully, a major right knee injury, but I’ve dealt with the left knee injury since I was 16 years old,” Rodgers said in September shortly after the season.
“Fortunately Doc cleaned me out a few years ago after the season and it’s been excellent since then.”
Rodgers said he will make his annual appearance in the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am this week.
Who could forget his Willis Reed moment earlier in the season.
