Aaron Rodgers Not Considering Surgery Despite Playing with a Broken Thumb

The start of the season was pretty rocky for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, and we finally know why. The star quarterback has confirmed he’s been playing with the broken thumb since Week 5, but he’s not considering surgery despite his injury. After the cameras caught Rodgers holding his thumb on multiple occasions this season, rumors about his injury started circling around. He finally confirmed, quite reluctantly, that he was injured but his broken thumb isn’t stopping him from playing. “It doesn't make a difference with me playing. It doesn't make a difference. You saw the tape on my thumb. Didn't make a difference… I think I've had worse injuries I've played with. Definitely a challenge, but the days off helped. Feeling better this week," said Rodgers on Wednesday. The 38-year-old suffered an injury when Green Bay lost to the New York Giants all the way back in early October, and he avoided discussing his injury ever since. This game kicked off the series of five straight losses for the Packers, and Rodgers refused to address his injury in detail during that time. The Packers will face the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night. Their track record this season is pretty disappointing at 4-7, following a series of shocking losses.
