The 2022 NFL season has not gone according to plan for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay has lost six of their last seven games (4-7 on the year) and Rodgers is struggling in one of the worst seasons of his professional career.

While he's been adamant about not making excuses because of his injured thumb, Rodgers revealed some new insight into the injury on Wednesday. The ailment is much worse than originally thought and one he's been dealing with since Week 5.

Rodgers confirmed that his right thumb has been broken since Week 5, on a play that happened during Green Bay's contest against the New York Giants in London.

The 10-time Pro Bowler mentioned surgery is an option, but not until the finale of the season.

For now, the Packers are focused on Week 12's Sunday Night Football clash with the Philadelphia Eagles. Philadelphia is considered a 6.5-point favorite, according to NFL odds on FanDuel Sportsbook.
