Despite missing seven games due to an injury in 2013, Green Bay Packers megastar Aaron Rodgers promises to continue scrambling this season.
Rodgers, who suffered a broken collarbone during Green Bay’s 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears on November 4, is completely healed and practiced yoga to get “11 pounds lighter and more flexible.”
“(Scrambling) adds an extra dimension to my game,” said Rodgers, 30, who has carried the ball 333 times for 1,562 yards and 18 scores since debuting as a Packer in 2005.
Prior to getting shelved, Rodgers was directing the league’s third premier attack and had tossed 15 touchdowns, against four interceptions, for 2,218 yards over eight contests.
Most impressively, the 6-foot-2, 225-pound Rodgers completed 66.9% of his 251 attempts.
Athletic, smart and possessing an extremely powerful arm, Rodgers is arguably the preeminent field general today.
With journeyman Matt Flynn substituting for the 2011 MVP, Green Bay (8-7-1) somehow managed to persevere and capture their fourth consecutive division title.
Football is a collision sport and it’s impossible to predict if a player will get hurt.
However, Rodgers wounded his non-throwing shoulder, can quickly sense pressure in the pocket, and is exceedingly durable.
Accordingly, expect Aaron Rodgers to remain healthy this entire autumn and allow Green Bay to overcome the Detroit Lions in the NFC Central.by
