Aaron Rodgers: Toe is not going to be a problem

After Sunday’s win over the Bears, quarterback Aaron Rodgers told reporters that his fractured toe felt worse after suffering a setback.

But from his Tuesday comments on the Pat McAfee Show, it still doesn’t sound like Rodgers is going to get surgery on the toe.

“Toe was definitely hurting after the game, but it is what it is,” Rodgers said, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “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.”

Rodgers has maintained that even if he does have surgery, it wouldn’t stop him from playing the following Sunday. He’s been adamant since the injury that he’s not going to miss any time.

Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said on Monday that the team will provide Rodgers with whatever he needs to be at his best. Last week, Rodgers didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday but was limited on Friday. He then went out and passed for 341 yards and four touchdowns while completing 78 percent of his passes in the 45-30 victory.

The Packers travel to Baltimore to play the Ravens in Week 15.

  1. How about if reporters stop asking Rodgers about toe, and news/sports outlets stop writing stories about it?

  2. Toughest players in NFL history:

    1) Ronnie Lott
    2) Aaron Rodgers
    3) Jack Lambert
    4) Bronco Nagurski
    5) Dick Butkis

  3. Packers are gonna roll the Ravens. The Ravens are riddled with injuries and tanking. They have no shot.

    If it’s not going to be a problem then quit talking about it after every game.
    ********
    Actually, a majority of Rodgers’ postgame press conference Sunday night was about the nuts and bolts of the Bears game itself.
    It wasn’t until the very tail end of the presser that a reporter asked him about his toe and he gave an honest answer.
    In fact, every single instance that his toe has been mentioned, it’s been because of a media related question.

    It’s not like Aaron is walking around ringing a bell while wearing a sandwich board reading, “Ask me about my toe!”

    Again, as I’ve said in previous posts, if you’re not interested in certain Aaron Rodgers related articles, I’d bring it up to those who report for and edit this site, or easier yet, just scroll on past.
    Hope this helped. 😃

    100% chance it is cited as a reason they lost, when they lose in the playoffs.

    There. Fixed it for you.

    Injuries don’t matter with Ravens. First place team, tank? I don’t see this as being a close game. Easy as WE jump on GB early and put up 40 points.

  7. Note to the world. There’s nothing wrong with Rogers’ toe — he’s messing’ with you.

  8. He’s playing his best football ever. Given his loose relationship with the truth, I wouldn’t be surprised if he isn’t injured at all.

    HILARIOUS- 4 out of 5 for sure.

  10. If it’s not going to be a problem then quit talking about it after every game.

    Cause Rodgers walks up to reporters, taps them on the shoulder and says “hey, wanna hear about my toe”?

  11. Rodgers has made it clear that he’s going to play through this and rest it between games. If it was a finger on his throwing hand, then we’d have a problem. His mobility seems fine. He gives a lot of access to the sports media and they’re always going to bring it up. Because he’s Aaron Rodgers, it’s always news and always blown out of proportion.
