Aaron Rodgers was spotted outside a Los Angeles doctor’s office walking with a renowned orthopedics and sports medicine physician Friday while the team is on a bye week.
Rodgers was seen walking with Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache in the parking lot outside the offices of Kerlan-Jobe orthopedics. He is a specialist in sports medicine as well as shoulder, elbow and knee injuries. Rodgers has been dealing with a toe injury he suffered last month when he was isolating after testing positive for COVID-19. He said he fractured his toe and later dispelled rumors he was dealing with COVID toe.
TMZ Sports reports he had a nearly 3-hour visit.
“The injury I suffered when I was in quarantine doing my own workouts and trying to ramp up my conditioning,” he told “The Pat McAfee Show” in November. “Didn’t think it was what it was until I go to the facility on Saturday before the game and got X-rayed when I got cleared and got back into the facility.
“So it’s just about pain management. There’s surgical options as well that wouldn’t involve missing time. So, thankfully, we’ve got a great foot guy in town [Dr. Robert Anderson] — the best in the business who everybody sends stuff to. But I’ll definitely look at all options over the bye week and decide what would be best to make sure I get to the finish line.”
He could reportedly have the surgery and be back on the field in a matter of days, but for now, it appears he won’t be taking that route.
Green Bay will return to the field next Sunday night against Chicago.
