Packers’ Aaron Rodgers has surgery to repair a torn pectoral muscle

Packers’ Packers’ wide receiver Aaron Rodgers is expected to undergo surgery to fix a torn Achilles tendon on Tuesday, a source told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Rodgers suffered the injury during a Week 3 game against the Denver Broncos.

He did not practice on Tuesday but could return to the team’s first preseason game against Tampa Bay.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said in a statement that Rodgers will “continue to do everything he can to return to game action” after the surgery.

“We are very fortunate that he’s a great player and a good person,” McCarthy said.

“He’ll continue to do whatever he can do to help the team.

I can’t wait to get back in there and play.”

Rodgers injured his Achilles tendon during a game in Week 3 against the Broncos, tearing his pectus.

He has missed the past two seasons due to injury.

He missed the Packers’ preseason opener against the Detroit Lions last September due to an illness.
