Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his left collarbone last season and ended up missing seven games during 2013. He is on the comeback tour and preparing to get ready of the 2014 season, and Rodgers has said his collarbone feels good and that he isn’t having any issues.
“It feels good,” Rodgers said, via the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. “I don’t have any issues.”
To ESPN reporter Bob Holtzman, Rodgers reiterated those points and added that his collarbone is completely healed. The biggest piece of news might be that a leaner, slimmer and trimmer Rodgers is heading into training camps minus 11 pounds.
Look out NFL…@AaronRodgers12 says yoga has him 11 pounds lighter and more flexible. Collarbone all healed too.

That certainly isn’t bad news for the Packers. Rodgers is turning 31 towards the end of the next season and yoga could go a long way and keeping him in shape as he approaches the twilight years of his career.
To clarify, we aren’t saying 30 is the beginning of, or in his twilight years, but he is headed that way. Rodgers has been a very durable and reliable quarterback for the Packers though, having only missed one game due to injury before the 2013 season, so there is no reason to expect that Rodgers would be at risk heading into the 2014 season.
We’ll see if the Packers can win the the NFC North again, they whole division added key pieces and it could be a three-way race between them, the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears.
