Aaron Rodgers not concerned with pain, but whether his collarbone is healed

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told ESPN 540 in Milwaukee that he didn’t experience any pain in his injured shoulder when he threw a football around prior to last week’s loss to the Giants.

“It felt good,” Rodgers said. “I had the adrenaline going.”

Rodgers admits that his biggest issue is making sure his collarbone is healed before he gets back on the field.

“I think the biggest issue is not the pain at this point,” Rodgers said. “It is the risk of taking a shot like that and what it would do if [the collarbone] displaced. Obviously, I’d be out for the season and worried about any type of complications going forward.”

Rodgers still doesn’t know when he’ll be back.  A typical person with his injury would need 4-6 weeks to heal.

“We’re 15 days outside of a fractured collarbone,” Rodgers said. “Put that in the context of a normal healing cycle who’s had a similar injury to mine.”
