“That’s not my understanding that that’s not what I’ve talked to Pat about. I haven’t. We haven’t had that discussion,” Rodgers said to the reporters.

When asked if he was feeling any better, the quarterback said that the leaves helped him heal the injury. “I feel pretty good this week. The five days off helped. Didn’t get it banged at all. So I feel like it’s definitely better than it was last week,” he added. Per reports, Rodgers sustained the injury since his Week 5 loss to the New York Giants.
