According to NFL.com, Rodgers was irritated at Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr for the tackle, which came outside the pocket and drew no penalty flag. Rodgers landed hard on his shoulder, as Barr drove him into the turf. He appeared hurt as he was unable to give his relief a high five with his correct hand.
Rodgers caused some uproar a couple weeks ago after making mockery out of the criticism the NFL was getting for protesting the National Anthem on Instagram.Here is the statement he made on Instagram:
He, along with other Packers also asked for fans to take part in the arm-locking protest that many NFL players take part in instead of kneeling.
Here was Rodgers statement on arm-locking to PackersNews.com:
“I think there’s been a great sense of unity and love and support in this locker room, guys coming together. Outside the building, I think the message has been diluted a little bit, and it’s been kind of taken away from what we were trying to do: show a united front, guys linking up together.”
The loss of Rodgers will be very tough for the Green Bay Packers to make it to post season, as he is arguably their most valuable player.
