According to Injured Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers he is very eager to go back to the field, even though he is not sure exactly when that will happen.
The 29 year-old star player said on his radio show on 540 AM ESPN that he’s doing everything he can to return from the fractured left collarbone suffered a week earlier in a 27-20 defeat versus the Chicago Bears. Rodgers also stated he’s giving the bone time to heal, and that yesterday was the best he had felt since getting hurt.
YouWager experts learned that Packers general manager Ted Thompson replenished depth yesterday in announcing the signing of Rodgers’ former backup Matt Flynn, who has been released this year by the Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills.
With Rodgers hurt, Flynn will back up one-time practice squad player Scott Tolzien, who replaced Seneca Wallace in the 27-13 defeat Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Under these circumstances, Tolzien played well after Wallace left with a groin injury after the first series. Coach Mike McCarthy and several online sports betting experts were impressed that he’s already named Tolzien the starter for Sunday’s game versus the New York Giants.
Wallace was placed on injured reserve Tuesday to make room for Flynn, Green Bay’s seventh-round draft pick in 2008 who spent four years at home.
The ultimate goal is to get back to the 2011 NFL MVP. The California native pointed to “small victories” in his recovery, like sleeping through an entire night, and putting socks on without being in extreme pain.
