Not a great start for Aaron Rodgers’ new coach.
NFL Network’s Mike Silver reported that Green Bay Packers coach Matt LaFleur suffered a torn Achilles’ tendon while playing a game of Knockout on a Lambeau basketball court on Wednesday night.
Look for @packers head coach to be ready for week 1 on the sidelines. https://t.co/nBQQgc4Qt5

LaFleur will undergo surgery Sunday and will coach the rest of OTAs and mandatory minicamp in June (11-13) from a cart, Silver added.
The Packers hired LaFleur after 13 seasons under Mike McCarthy.
The injury can not be a good omen.
LaFleur’s injury is a reminder of why teams don’t want their players participating in any kind of activities that can result in injury. You just don’t expect your coach to get injured.
As long as Rodgers stays healthy, they should be alright.
