Victor Oladipo injury update: Pacers star suffers 'serious' knee injury that could end season Oladipo will undergo an MRI exam on Thursday to determine the severity of the knee injury, but the Pacers fear it's season-ending.

“It feels great . It’s nice to not have any clunking around or anything, so it was good.” Rodgers said the surgery was done to clean up an old injury and that there wasn’t a specific “moment” that he hurt it before Rodgers had knee surgery while in college, but hasn’t had issues in that area as a pro and.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went a different route after injuring his knee again last season. Though he didn’t detail what it was, the decision allowed him to avoid surgery and he’ll be ready for the start of the team’s offseason program.

From ESPN:

“I feel great,” Rodgers said on NFL Network. “My body feels really good. Instead of getting surgery postseason, decided to kind of go through a different routine with my knee than I’ve done in the past, and I’m feeling really, really good. Got a concussion the last game, that’s cleared up. I’m feeling really good. I’m getting back into my workout routine, but the first month of the offseason is a lot about yoga and traveling.”

Aaron Rodgers said he feels great after a knee injury and concussion marred his season .

Rodgers underwent reconstructive surgery in his left knee during his time at the University of California, but hasn’t missed any time in his professional career because of knee injuries. Rodgers , 32, said the knee was holding up just fine after playing his first full 18 holes of golf since July during

Rodgers gave a scare to the NFL brass when he left for the locker room in the season opener and was ruled questionable to return. He was holding his left leg and had to be helped up in the second quarter.

The 15-year veteran played most of the season with a large leg brace and alluded to surgery in the offseason, then left the season finale with a concussion.

Rodgers had problems with knee before

The left knee is the one Rodgers had ACL reconstruction surgery on while at the University of California. After the 2015 season he had surgery on it as a “cleanup of an old injury.” Rodgers said, per ESPN, the knee has been “excellent” since then.

“It’s the lead leg, the plant leg, it’s not the brace or the back of the drop leg, which I haven’t had, thankfully, a major right knee injury, but I’ve dealt with the left knee injury since I was 16 years old,” Rodgers said in September.

Packers to start offseason work early

Rodgers spent time in New Zealand last month with race car driver and girlfriend Danica Patrick. He’ll make his annual appearance at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, which begins Thursday.

Then it’s a little more off time before the Packers’ offseason program beings April 1, earlier than Rodgers has started in years. Teams with new coaches, such as Packers’ Matt LaFleur, are allowed to begin at the start of April while returning coaches can bring their teams together starting April 15.

Koivu 'totally confident' in return from ACL surgery.
Leaning on his crutches, just six days after reconstructive surgery on his right knee, Mikko Koivu was asked if he had concern about his ability to return to the Minnesota Wild next season at age 36. Just as if he were corralling a puck with a quick flick of his stick on a faceoff, Koivu didn't flinch. "Yes, I'm totally confident. I think those are just numbers," Koivu said. "I think it's about your effort, the way you take care of yourself on and off the ice, and at the end, it's going to be a battle. But if you're strong enough, you're going to be able to do it.
