For now, Rodgers is weighing his options for potential surgery and dealing with various personal considerations. Saleh explained that he has not broached the subject with Rodgers yet, recognizing that the quarterback has a lot to work through mentally. However, Saleh anticipates discussing Rodgers’ plans for the upcoming season at a later time.
