Aaron Rodgers: Fractured toe should be 100 percent by next week

Aaron Rodgers has been dealing with a fractured toe since coming off the COIVD-19 list back in November.

It hasn’t impacted his performance much, as Rodgers completed 70 percent of his passes for 2,221 yards with 20 touchdowns and one interception in the eight games since his return.

And that interception was in his first game back, Green Bay’s 17-0 victory over Seattle.
But with the playoffs arriving, Rodgers said Wednesday that his toe should be just fine by next Saturday or Sunday’s game. He also noted that he hasn’t received a pain-killing injection for the toe in weeks.

“That’s been the most encouraging thing. Got through last week without doing one,” Rodgers said in his press conference. “It was just a pretty standard shot in the toe — very painful, but numbing agent. So that helped me get through the games. The whole goal was to be able to not have to do that and it’s been a few games now without doing that.

“So, I’m feeling good, practiced today. [I’m] close to 100 percent. I think I should be 100 percent probably by next week.”

Rodgers, who is widely expected to win his second consecutive MVP award, completed 69 percent of his passes for 4,115 yards with 37 touchdowns adjust four interceptions in 2021, good for a league-leading 111.9 passer rating.

  1. Good news for Denver or Pittsburgh when they pick him up next season. He is healthy.

  2. Rodgers made it through his broken toe. 5 starters, most of whom have missed most of the season are back for the record breaking assault on #14.

    The Green Bay weather has turned nasty.

    They’ll be playing in front of a completely full Lambeau crowd this year.

    I love it when a plan comes together.

  3. If he starts off slowly two weeks from now do you think one of his linemen steps hard on his toe?

  4. And the Fractured ego?
    On his way to a second MVP, best QB in the league making one of the biggest salaries and you think his ego is hurting. Now that’s funny. Please please bruise my ego as such.

  5. He still will go on and on about his toe. It gives him something to talk about himself

  6. No reason to use his toe anymore as an excuse.

    He switched over to blaming the media

  7. That dang toe was a godsend for Rodgers. It took all the attention away from being exposed as an arrogant liar.

  8. Ah yes, the best part about being an NFC North team fan other than Packers….The excuses ALWAYS start early in the playoffs for the Green Bay Packers.

    The worst part is watching the refs throw bunk flags to let the Packers skate through the division.

  9. I am so sick of hearing about Rodgers’s toe. Just think how many people go to work with more serious issues and don’t complain, especially making $25 million a year yet complains.

  10. Is this the truth Aaron?
    You been known to tell fibs.
    Once a fibber always a fibber.

    This Super Bowl is the Packers to lose.
    This scenario is going into its third season. They always choke.

  11. The Green Bay weather has turned nasty.

    I absolutely cannot wait to see Dillons Beast Mode impression.

    Prepare to be posterized.

  12. The mans ego has no limits he should put that foot of his in his mouth and just throw the dam ball the more he talks the more hated he becomes.
