The Green Bay Packers quarterback suffered what looked to be a significant knee injury in the first game of the year, only to return to the season opener against the Chicago Bears and lead an award-worthy comeback victory. Rodgers didn't miss a single game from there on out, though the knee sprain he suffered in Week 1 appeared to linger and affect his play for the rest of the season.
"I feel great," Rodgers told NFL Network's red-carpet dynamos Kay Adams and Kyle Brandt before NFL Honors on Saturday. "My body feels really good. Instead of getting surgery postseason, decided to kind of go through a different routine with my knee than I've done in the past, and I'm feeling really, really good. Got a concussion the last game, that's cleared up. I'm feeling really good. I'm getting back into my workout routine, but the first month of the offseason is a lot about yoga and traveling."
Rodgers threw a career-low two picks in a full season in 2018, but also tossed just 25 touchdowns and took 49 sacks, the third-most in his career. Adding insult to injury, the Pack fired longtime coach Mike McCarthy and finished 6-9-1.
A new era under Matt LaFleur has already begun in Green Bay and Rodgers will be full-go when their offseason program begins.
