Matt LaFleur has made it clear that Aaron Rodgers will remain the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers as long as he's healthy.
Already dealing with a fractured thumb, Rodgers left the Packers' loss to the Philadelphia Eagles with a rib injury on Sunday.
Rodgers left in the third quarter with pain and trouble breathing. He underwent additional tests on Monday. LaFleur was vague about the results.
"Sometimes there's stuff that doesn't show up on all the scans," LaFleur said. "All I can tell you is he's feeling a little bit better."
Jordan Love was impressive in relief, going 6-for-9 with 113 yards and a touchdown. Green Bay scored 10 points on his two drives.
"I don't think that's what we're arguing here," LaFleur said. "It's just, we've got a lot of faith, quite frankly, in both those guys. But you know, Aaron's the starting quarterback. He's battled through a lot throughout the course of his career. It's pretty well documented, and I think he's been able to play at a pretty high level through a lot of different situations. So again, we'll take it one game at a time and make the best decision moving forward."
