No team has been able to stop Aaron Rodgers over the last two months, but an illness might slow him down on Sunday.
According to the New York Post, Rodgers admitted he was sick, and apparently it has been spreading around the Packers’ locker room.
“Rest, fluids, all that stuff,” Rodgers said. “We’ll be OK. Jordy [Nelson] had it. Mason [Crosby] had it. I got it. We’ll deal with it.”
When reporter Jason Wilde began to compare Rodgers’ illness to Michael Jordan’s infamous flu game, Rodgers cut him off.
In addition to illnesses around the team, several Packers are also injured, including Nelson (ribs), Davante Adams (ankle) and Geronimo Allison (hamstring). It will be intriguing to see if the illnesses play a role in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game.
