Packers QB Aaron Rodgers dealt with back injury Sunday morning

At the end of his post-game press conference. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made an impromptu, post-hoc amendment to the team’s official injury report.

He had a back issue on Sunday morning, which required immediate treatment on Sunday morning to allow him to play.

“I do have to give a big shout out to [Packers Coordinator of Rehabilitation] Nate Weir and [Packers Chiropractor] Mike Zoelle,” Rodgers said. “I woke up this morning and my back was killing me, it was all locked up. And I came in here early, and I’m thankful for those guys taking care of me in order to go out and play today.”
