Rodgers Not Ready To Shut It Down Just Yet

When Aaron Rodgers was knocked out of the game on Sunday night, a lot was made of the severity of his injury.

For now, it's unclear how much he'll be able to play next week against the Bears

Green Bay: Knocked out of Sunday night's loss with an injured rib, Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers intends to play for next week's matchup at the Chicago Bears.

Rodgers didn't sound optimistic on Monday, but he recognized that the team's whole season might not be in danger.

"If I check out tomorrow, I'll try to get back out there," Rodgers said with a smile. "I might not be able to go Wednesday, but if there is no major structural damage, I think we'll have a chance."

Aaron Rodgers is still determining whether he'll play past the season finale. He wants to continue playing as long as Green Bay's playoff hopes remain alive. 

He wouldn't rule out stepping away from the Packers if his team is mathematically eliminated from the postseason. Still, he sounded ready to cede the position to Jordan Love in a scenario like that.

Should the Packers fall to 4-6 in their remaining games this season, Rodgers is open to playing elsewhere next year. 

He explained that, like with pride and love for the game, players might also want to leave Green Bay if they need more confidence their team will make the playoffs.

Rodgers said the injury initially occurred in the second quarter and became aggravated a short time later on third down when he was sacked on third down.

As Matt LaFleur watched Brett Hundley, his star quarterback, he could tell that he wasn't feeling well. 

So, they continued running even as they mixed in a couple running exercises to keep him cool and limber. 

And you could see how Brett was breathing heavily and wincing with every throw. It was obvious that he was in a lot of pain.
