An orthopedic surgeon with Baycare Clinic says the main focus around Aaron Rodgers' injury should be to rule out a ligament injury or fracture.

Dr. Harold Schock says the fact that Rodgers was able to play in Sunday night's game after his injury is a good sign but he still might see more soreness now than he did immediately after the injury.

He says there are steps that can be taken to rehab this type of injury.

“The next steps become rehabbing that players knee and the first step is getting the inflammation down so ice compression oftentimes you may stay off of it for a period of time to get that inflammation down," explains Dr. Schock.

While Dr. Schock has not examined Aaron Rodgers, he has worked with local athletes who have had similar injuries.
