Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers Denies Reports of Another Head Injury
Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers took another helmet-to-helmet hit during last Sunday's NFC Championship Game win from Chicago Bears' pass rusher Julius Peppers.
The hit earned Peppers a 15-yard personal foul and a $10,000 fine from the NFL, and appeared to stun Rodgers. But the quarterback, who has already has a history of concussions that has to be troubling for any Packer fan (or you know, fans of people without jelly for brains) has been denying ever since that he is anything less than 100 percent healthy.
As reported by the Captial Times, Rodgers reported "I didn't have a concussion. I want to dispel that rumor. No concussion. I was fine. Yeah. Helmets are designed to prevent concussions, I think." Well thanks, Aaron, that really dispels our concerns. Obviously, he's going to say whatever he can at this point to quell any injury talk and be able to stay on the field, but it's still an issue that will have to be watched carefully come Sunday.
Will it be enough to affect his performance on Sunday? Maybe. Will it be something that affects him later in life? Unfortunately, all signs point to yes.
