Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers hinted that his right thumb might be broken during his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show and he confirmed it while speaking with reporters in Green Bay on Wednesday.
Rodgers said that he’s played with other broken fingers in the past, but that this is the first time he’s dealt with a broken thumb.

According to the story, Rodgers said surgery was never a consideration and that he thinks he’s played through other injuries that have had more of an impact on his play. Owners who have stuck with Rodgers to this point may want to pay attention to this. With playoff hopes fading, it remains to be seen if the Packers stick with Rodgers for the rest of the season.
