Rodgers' preseason workload is to be determined, Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal reports. "I think it's just something we're going to evaluate each week and see where we are, see how much work we need to get in," coach Matt LaFleur said Tuesday.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers' workload during exhibition season has steadily decreased as the decade has progressed, culminating in just one offensive series in 2018. This offseason, he expressed a desire to get in more preseason action than he's accustomed to, but LaFleur seemed to tap the breaks on such thoughts. GM Brian Gutekunst specifically noted joint practices with the Texans prior to the Packers' first preseason game Thursday, Aug. 8. During those sessions, Rodgers will be in a competitive environment but won't have to worry about getting tackled, for example. No matter, expect Rodgers to make an appearance at some point in August, especially as he incorporates LaFleur's system in his age-36 season.

Rodgers revealed Tuesday that he played with a tibial plateau fracture in addition to an MCL sprain during the 2018 season, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Adding to a history of left knee injuries that dates back to high school, Rodgers got hurt Week 1 against Chicago and aggravated the MCL sprain Week 5 against Detroit. He still was able to start 16 games, though he was removed early Week 17 with a concussion. The symptoms from the concussion had cleared up by the beginning of February, and Rodgers opted for a series of shots rather than having surgery on his knee (he said he received the same shots in past years). The repetition of similar injuries is legitimate cause for concern in terms of his longevity and durability, but the 35-year-old quarterback said his body feels great for the start of Green Bay's offseason program. Rodgers will be working with new coach Matt LaFleur and offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett, hoping improved play calling leads to better results from a personnel group that looks quite similar to last season's.

Rodgers said his troublesome left knee is feeling good and shouldn't have any impact on his offseason routine, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers initially hurt his knee playing basketball in high school, eventually requiring an ACL reconstruction during college and a less complicated surgery after the 2015 campaign. It cropped up as an issue once again after his left leg was bent at an awkward angle Week 1 this past season, but he returned to the contest and ended up playing all 16 games. While it's quite possible the injury contributed to a disappointing campaign, the bigger issues in Green Bay were poor coaching, a terrible defense and a lack of pass-catching weapons behind Davante Adams. The Packers seem to be headed for major changes during the offseason, starting with the hiring of Matt LaFleur as head coach and play caller. In addition to the optimism regarding his left knee, the 35-year-old quarterback recently mentioned that he's no longer dealing with symptoms from a Week 17 concussion. Rodgers should be a full participant when the Packers start their offseason program the first week of April.

Rodgers (concussion) said at the NFL Honors event Saturday that he has no lingering injury concerns, Lindsey Pallares of WBAY Sports reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers exited the season finale against the Lions after sustaining the concussion, tweaked his groin Week 15 and battled a bone bruise and MCL sprain for the bulk of the season, which resulted in him skipping last week's Pro Bowl. The veteran signal caller avoided surgery on his knee and is now resuming his regular offseason workout routine. The 35-year-old totaled 4,442 yards and completed 62 percent of his passes with 25 touchdowns and only two interceptions this season, as he'll look to return to his MVP-caliber form in 2019 with new head coach Matt LaFleur.

Rodgers (concussion) has been ruled out of the 2019 Pro Bowl due to injury.
EDGE Analysis
The report didn't cite a specific issue, but Rodgers suffered a deep bone bruise and sprained MCL in his left knee Week 1, tweaked his groin Week 15, and wrapped up the campaign with a concussion Week 17. The decision to skip the NFL's all-star game may have been spurred by all three, but he would have been subject to the concussion protocol in order to play on Jan. 27. While he threw just two interceptions this season and surpassed 4,000 passing yards for the seventh time in 11 years as the Packers' starting quarterback, Rodgers posted his second-lowest completion percentage (62.3), worst touchdown percentage (4.2) and third-most times sacked (49) during that stretch. He'll be looking to bounce back in 2019 under the tutelage of new coach Matt LaFleur.

Rodgers has been diagnosed with a concussion and won't return to Sunday's game versus the Lions.
EDGE Analysis
The confirmation of a concussion marks the third of Rodgers' career, as noted by Jason Wilde of ESPN.com. As a result, Rodgers is in the protocol for head injuries and won't be eligible to speak with the media until he gains clearance from an independent neurologist, which clouds whether he may undergo knee surgery immediately after the season, according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com. No matter how the upcoming months go for Rodgers, he'll end his 11th year as the starting quarterback in Green Bay with 4,442 yards passing, a 25:2 TD:INT and 269 yards on 43 rushes (6.3 YPC).

Rodgers left Sunday's game against the Lions to be evaluated for a concussion.
EDGE Analysis
If Rodgers is diagnosed with a concussion, it would be a fitting end to what has been another lost season in Green Bay. Fortunately for the quarterback, there won't be any meaningful game action for many months, so he would have plenty of time to recover. DeShone Kizer will fill in at QB for as long as Rodgers is sidelined.

Rodgers (groin/knee) completed 37 of 55 passes for 442 yards and two touchdowns while adding 32 yards and two touchdowns on five carries and running in a two-point conversion in Sunday's 44-38 overtime win over the Jets.
EDGE Analysis
Given how effective he was with his legs, it's safe to say Rodgers wasn't at all limited by the groin injury he picked up last week. The veteran quarterback's pair of passing touchdowns were a 49-yarder to Jake Kumerow and a 16-yarder to Davante Adams, the latter of which won the game in overtime. That game-winning touchdown was set up by a pair of one-yard Rodgers rushing scores in the fourth quarter. Owners who stuck with Rodgers through this down season by his lofty standards were handsomely rewarded in what was the Championship round for most fantasy leagues. Rodgers will likely be productive in Week 17 as well given his history of dominating the Lions.

Rodgers (groin/knee) expects to play in Sunday's road game against the Jets, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. "I want to be out there with the guys, and I look forward to being out there," Rodgers said Wednesday.
EDGE Analysis
After Sunday's loss at Chicago, Rodgers opened a can of worms by admitting he tweaked his groin, which he continued to play through but also required stretching out a number of times after halftime. Interim coach Joe Philbin commented on the situation Monday, telling Demovsky that the Packers had no intention of shutting down Rodgers for the season with the playoffs not a possibility. Per Michael Cohen of The Athletic, Rodgers opened Week 16 prep with a full practice session Wednesday, ending any debate over whether or not the signal-caller will be out there this weekend.

Rodgers (groin) took the initial reps during the portion of Wednesday's practice open to the media, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Rodgers' Week 16 availability against the Jets is in question due to a groin injury suffered this past Sunday in Chicago. If he has his way, he expects to continue leading the Packers offense for the final two games of the season, despite having no chance at a postseason appearance. That said, interim coach Joe Philbin told Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette on Wednesday the team will evaluate Rodgers all week before coming to a decision.
