Matt LaFleur: To my knowledge, Aaron Rodgers not planning to have toe surgery

During an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show last week, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he was still evaluating whether or not to have surgery on his fractured toe.

But Rodgers made it clear that even if he did have surgery, he would not miss any playing time.

The Packers are back after their bye in Week 13 and head coach Matt LaFleur said that Rodgers is not planning to go under the knife.

“Not to my knowledge,” LaFleur said in his Monday press conference. “I don’t believe so, no.

Rodgers suffered the injury while working out during his COVID-19 quarantine in November. He has completed 64 percent of his passes for 984 yards with six touchdowns and one interception in the last three games since coming off the COVID-19 list. He also rushed for a 1-yard touchdown in the team’s Week 12 victory over the Rams.

Based on LaFleur’s comments, there’s been no setback with Rodgers and his toe. The plan remains for Rodgers to start against the Bears on Sunday Night Football in Week 14, whether or not he practices this week.

“I know he was getting treatment and doing everything he can to be 100 percent,” LaFleur said. “I still think it’s a process, like anything, and we’ll see where he’s’ at this week. Hopefully, we can get him out there at practice, but if not we’ve got a lot of confidence in just his ability to go out there and play at a high level.”

  1. But when is he planning on being suspended for hiding his vaccination status?

    Oh that’s right, the rules don’t apply to him.

  2. Notice he didn’t say “No. He isn’t”. Even Coach knows he can’t predict what Aaron will say next.

  3. Rodgers will go to Pat McAfee Show to announce he is thinking about getting a pedicure. Watch it.

  4. If you ask Rodgers anything, you never know if he’s telling you the truth, so why even ask?

  5. Not to his knowledge! Shouldn’t he know for sure seeing it is his starting QB.

  6. Don’t go away mad Aaron, just go away! Getting so tired of reading about all the nonsense surrounding this guy, 90% of which he has generated himself.

  7. Rodgers owes the Packer fans he lied to a SuperBowl victory this year. Then, please leave.

  8. The Packers and the league knew he wasn’t vaccinated, so no suspension. Let’s get over thr fib he told to reporters and move on to the games.

  9. So tired of this guy, will be on his personal platform today to say he’s the smartest guy ever

  10. Conversely, Zimmer knows for a fact that Dalvin Cook has a history of beating women.

    And he and their fans don’t care.

  11. Even without the practices I have complete confidence that Aaron will be able to line up behind his Center consistently for snaps, especially on crucial 4th downs. 🤣

    Moving on, it’s Bear Week, which always brings with it some extra juice on both sides of the border.
    Regardless of records, it’s always a special week.
    And with this particular game, a possible opportunity to completely lock up the NFC North.
    And all of this before I’ve even started my Christmas shopping. 🎄 🎁
    Nice!
