Thursday update: Rodgers didn’t practice on Thursday, as he continues to rest his li’l pinky toe.
Wednesday update: Rodgers sat out Wednesday’s walkthrough session, which he hinted at in Tuesday’s appearance on The Pat McAfee show. This could be the norm for Rodgers as he tries to play through the toe fracture. It likely will not cost Rodgers games.
Tuesday update: Rodgers said on The Pat McAfee Show he plans to play through the toe injury and feels it is only a question of pain management. The quarterback said he might sit out practices to avoid aggravating the injury further.
Aaron Rodgers on @PatMcAfeeShow: “Toe was definitely hurting after the game, but it is what it is. It’s not going to be a problem I don’t think. It’s not going to stop me from playing. It’s just pain management but I’m going to keep playing and probably not practice a whole lot.” pic.twitter.com/PNTSjwHWYp— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) December 14, 2021
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers told reporters after Sunday night’s game that he had a setback with his fractured pinky toe, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Rodgers has been playing through the injury for the last few weeks and has played well. It does appear as if he’s not really able to step into his throws as much as he could in the past, but his arm talent remains strong and hasn’t missed a beat.
They will re-evaluate the toe this week and surgery remains on the table, but that appears to be something for after the season right now. Rodgers will likely continue to miss practice like he has the last two weeks as he works to rest the injury.
The Packers take on the Baltimore Ravens in Week 15 and could be going against a team without their star quarterback, as Lamar Jackson suffered an ankle injury this week. Green Bay is very much in the driver’s seat for a good playoff seed as long as they can keep Rodgers’ toe numbed and feeling good enough for 3 hours each week.
