Aaron Rodgers has said he is finally back to playing the way he wants to play after recovering from a serious calf injury at the back end of last season, which will delight many Green Bay Packers fans.

The Packers quarterback declared to ESPN that he is back and is able to extend plays when he is required to after he struggled with mobility when he injured his calf. Now though, he says he has ‘zero inhibitions’ when it comes to moving on the field.

He said: "I'm back to playing the way I like to play, which is to extend plays when I can and get rid of it when I need to. (If) I have an opportunity to escape the pocket and create a different angle then I'm going to.

“It's nice to be back. I trained hard this offseason to keep the speed and keep my body in shape where I can have the endurance to have multiple plays like that in a game. And it definitely adds a different element to our offense."

It seems all the pieces are finally falling into place on offense for the Packers. They have a great receiving core, they've finally found a reliable running back, and now Rodgers is at 100 per cent fitness.

Hopefully their defense can live up to the same mark and keep them away from close call games. Rodgers will certainly get the points on offense, but the main thing for the Packers to focus on now is tightening up their defense so they can close out games earlier. They have a team that can go to the Super Bowl, so long as everyone stays at the top of their game.
