Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers looked good for most of Monday night’s 30-16 win over the Falcons, but there was an awkward moment in the fourth quarter of the game.
Rodgers was trying to avoid the Atlanta pass rush and fell clumsily to the ground as part of that effort. He slowly got up but stayed in the game and told ESPN’s Lisa Salters after the final whistle that he was redder in the face with how the game looked than he worried about his health.
“I think it was more embarrassment than injury,” Rodgers said. “My ankle, or knee, something, a little hyperextended maybe a little but I’m fine.”
The Packers say goodbye during week five, so Rodgers has plenty of time to make sure all is well. There is also time for wide receiver Front Adams to continue recovering from the hamstring injury, which would put the Packers in good offensive shape for a sixth week trip to Tampa Bay.
