Aaron Rodgers: Toe injury “a little worse” than turf toe

NFL: NOV 21 Packers at Vikings

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers didn’t take the final snap of the first half of Sunday’s loss to the Vikings because he’d gone into the locker room with trainers.

After the game, Rodgers revealed that the early exit was a result of someone stepping on his toe during the first half of play. Rodgers came into the game with a toe injury that kept him out of practice for a couple of days last week and it sounds like his practice schedule is going to be altered again this week because it is “very, very painful.”

“Gonna have to get to the bye and hope I can get some some healing over the bye week,” Rodgers said.

Rodgers said his injury is “a little worse than turf toe,” but it didn’t do much to hinder him in the second half. He was 10-of-11 for 197 yards and three touchdowns as the Packers came back from 23-10 down before losing on a last-second field goal.

The Packers host the Rams in Week 12.

  1. It’s not just any turf toe. It’s a special Rodgers one, exempt from conventional treatments!

  2. Oh okay …..lol Delicate Dalvin but A A RON coming about a toe😅😅😅😅😅😅

  3. Hope you called ahead to book a room at the psych ward so they can prepare your special room

  4. Turf ego is a rough injury for today’s snowflake athletes.

    Covid Wawgers was outplayed by lowly Kirk Cousins – a real man who stood by his unvax status and didn’t deceive anyone.

    How bad are the Packers to lose to the Vikings!

    Anyone want to buy some cheese cheater stock? Bwaaahahhhhhhhhhh

  5. One thing we all know for certain. This guy is dishonest. Who ever knows whats the truth and whats not.

  6. A note to all our opponents. ‘Please pass by gingerly when you see me and avoid stepping on my toes.’

  7. I’m sure he’ll be all right, Aaron is immunized against his toe injury, isn’t he?

  8. Well, at least it’s a legit injury.
    A toe injury in Minnesota is really just code for a mentally unstable player.
    And no, I’m not making light of Everson Griffen’s condition.
    But, I’m still waiting for the NFL to fine or punish the Vikings in some form or fashion for Zimmer’s outright lie on the injury report.
    Obviously, at this point I won’t hold my breath over it. 😉

  9. Covid Wawgers gets outplayd by Kirk Cousins and suddenly Covid Wawgers has an injury excuse?

    Looks like the fabled MVP will be getting plenty of off season time to practice the home edition of Jeopardy and Madden.

  10. This seems like an odd explanation, given that the network broadcast showed him hanging out in the tunnel while play was occurring with a bunch of county sheriff’s deputies with no trainers or any other folks around.

    I’m sure if A A Ron would have been winning he would have been out there. Instead Love comes in to kill the clock at the half? How diva is that? Like he’s too good to do such a peasant thing. That man bun got his priorities messed up man😅😅😅

    What?

  13. Turf toe isn’t an injury that heals over the bye week – he’ll be dealing with this all year. The interesting question is if he’s deadening the pain with torodol injections given his apparent fear of needles and putting drugs in his system.

  14. Aaron Rodgers was once looked at as a great quarterback (albeit a whiny one). Now he is a punchline. Nobody in recent memory has earned it more. Okay maybe Mr. Big Chest (Antonio Brown) or Leveon (gonna bet on me) Bell. Yup…Rodgers is in that category now. Rest your toe (amd ego) big guy.

  15. Didn’t identify the person, so working on a ditty about the incident, apologies to Percy French…

    One day this new lineman, as he made his block
    And backpedalled a bit on his heels,
    In backfield he did go where he trod on the toe
    of Aaron Aronron Rodgers

    Young man, quoth Aaron, has life grown so dull
    That you wish to end your career?
    UDFA, know, you have trod on the toe
    Of Aaron Aronron Rodgers.

    So take your last look at the stadium and crowd
    And send Matt Lafleur your regrets
    For by this I have raved, you are going to be waived
    whoever you were….I forget

  16. I’m a Chiefs fan and even I have to respect Arron Rodgers heart and will and ability! He’s in pain and he still plays like an MVP! Maybe the best QB ever…at least until Patrick Mahomes surpasses him!
