Aaron Rodgers Is Throwing 50-Yard Passes Just Six Weeks After Surgery

Rest easy, Green Bay Packers fans. Aaron Rodgers is looking good.

The quarterback hasn’t played since Week 6 when he broke his right clavicle against the Minnesota Vikings. The injury resulted in a surgery on Oct. 19 and subsequently being placed on injured reserve.

But prior to Sunday’s game versus the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rodgers was shown throwing passes comfortably, dialing in for around 50 yards at one point.

Here’s the video:

Whether or not Rodgers would even return this season is yet to be seen, and would likely depend on the Packers’ performance over the next few weeks. Given he has to spend eight weeks on IR, making him eligible to return in Week 15, there is still some time before that decision would need to be made.

Even if he doesn’t return this season, it’s encouraging to see him be able to throw with ease as the Packers have struggled mightily with Brett Hundley under center.
