No practice for Aaron Rodgers, again

As the Packers close in on another No. 1 seed and as quarterback Aaron Rodgers sets himself up for another MVP award, he continues to miss practice due to a lingering toe problem.

Rodgers officially didn’t practice on Thursday, after a teammate aggravated the condition by stepping on it during Saturday’s 24-22 win over the Browns.

Rodgers has said that the toe had been feeling good, and that he hopes the incidental contact between cleat and toe won’t result in a “major setback.”

The 12-3 Packers host the Vikings on Sunday night. Also missing practice on Thursday were tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), offensive lineman Billy Turner (knee), and defensive tackle Tyler Lancaster (back). Running back Aaron Jones (knee), cornerback Jaire Alexander (shoulder), and tight end Dominique Dafney (ankle) were limited.

  1. Whether Rodgers practices for the last two weeks of the season (vs. Vikings, @Lions) isn’t really the big question for Green Bay.

    The question is if Bakhtiari and Jaire Alexander will be back in time for the playoffs. If yes, the Packers could go all the way. If no, it will be hard to survive the NFC’s playoff teams.

    The left side of the line is weak absent Bakhtiari and some of the Houdini stuff Rodgers can do against a mediocre team on an injured foot won’t fly against elite teams.

    The addition of Alexander would take the Packers secondary from “pretty good” to “elite” in a single move, the starting corners would be Jaire Alexander and Rasul Douglas.

  2. Rodgers needs to be fitted with a steel toe shoe — would provide protection on the field with no loss of mobility.

  3. No practice needed? That didn’t work out too well for the Packers the last time the two teams played each other.

  4. Amazon sells steel toed sneakers..get a pair and put cleats on them….unbelievable that his toe is not protected with some sort of hard covering

  5. don’t worry Aaron if you fail to win the Super Bowl this year Pat will still let you rant like an idiot on his show. it’s great for rating
