When the Green Bay Packers lost to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a rib injury. Head coach Matt LaFleur indicated on Monday that Rodgers was feeling better but provided no further information.
LaFleur told reporters, “I know he’s feeling better today. I believe we’ll learn more in the following several days.” Rodgers would play against the rival Chicago Bears in Week 13 if he were well enough, according to LaFleur. Rodgers informed the media on Sunday that he will get an MRI on Monday. According to NFL Network Insider, Rodgers endured a CT scan and other testing all day Monday.
In the third quarter of the game on Sunday night, Rodgers exited. After the game, he confirmed that he had damaged his ribs in the second quarter and subsequently tweaked them. Rodgers was listed as doubtful to return from an oblique injury by the club during the game, but he never did.
