Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee last month to clean up an old injury, says the knee "feels great."

Rodgers, 32, has spent the past week at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, playing with Wisconsin PGA pro Jerry Kelly.

"It was just good to be out there walking normally," Rodgers said, via USA TODAY Sports. "It feels great. It's nice to not have any clunking around or anything, so it was good."

Rodgers said he had a scope performed on his knee soon after the Packers' 26-20 overtime loss on Jan. 16 to the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC divisional playoffs.

Rodgers had reconstructive surgery on his left knee in January 2004 -- his first season at the University of California -- for an injury suffered earlier while playing basketball in high school. He hasn't missed any time in his professional career because of knee injuries.

Rodgers' production dropped in 2015, setting career lows for completion percentage (60.7), passing yards per game (238.8) and yards per attempt (6.7). Eight interceptions represented his highest total since 2012.
