Patriots QB Aaron Rodgers will return to the field after undergoing neck surgery on Thursday, according to the NFL.
He’ll be out for several weeks.
Rodgers will be on a limited basis after having a neck procedure on March 8.
“He has had an MRI that’s been done,” Rodgers’ agent, Scott Boras, said.
“It shows a small piece of bone, but he has had no significant complications from that.”
The injury happened at the start of the 2017 season and Rodgers was forced to miss the final seven games.
He had a neck injury in Week 7 and was carted off the field in the first half of the second half with the injury.
Rodgers returned for the Patriots’ playoff game against the Chicago Bears on Jan. 31, but missed the next two games.
“The doctors have confirmed that the injury to Aaron is not related to any sports activity,” Rodgers said in a statement.
“This is a major setback for Aaron, his family and our organization, but the process continues to go smoothly.”
