Aaron Rodgers confirms right thumb is broken

Aaron Rodgers never felt the need to get into details about his right thumb injury for one reason: It was never going to keep the Green Bay Packers quarterback from playing.

That's why it wasn't until Wednesday when he finally -- and reluctantly -- confirmed that it was indeed broken, ROb Demovsky of reports.

"It doesn't make a difference with me playing," Rodgers said. "It doesn't make a difference. You saw the tape on my thumb. Didn't make a difference."

Rodgers has been dealing with the injury since he was sacked by Giants linebacker Oshane Ximines on the final play of the Packers' Oct. 9 game in London. Rodgers attempted a Hail Mary, but Ximines hit Rodgers' throwing arm and forced a fumble. Immediately after the play, Rodgers came up flexing his right hand.

Rodgers was asked specifically on Oct. 26 if his thumb was broken. He replied at the time: "My thumb is hurt."

Even when Pat McAfee asked Rodgers on Tuesday during his weekly appearance on McAfee's show if the thumb was broken, Rodgers just said he had played with broken fingers before without elaborating on this injury specifically.

"I think I've had worse injuries I've played with," Rodgers said Wednesday. "Definitely a challenge, but the days off helped. Feeling better this week."
