Rodgers remained a spectator for the rest of the workout, taking part in the on-court drills alongside Mike Nicolini, New York’s head strength and conditioning coach, she noted.
“You could see Rodgers trying to put some weight on one of his legs there,” Russini said in a clip from Rodgers diffused warm-up. “We don’t know if it was an adjustment; what kind of injury it is because he doesn’t really show too much. But you could definitely see in his face that something was going on.
