Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (right thumb) was listed as a limited participant in Tuesday’s walkthrough practice after the team estimated him a non-participant Monday.

He originally injured his right thumb on the final play of regulation against the Giants on Oct. 9 and has remained on the practice report with the injury since, though he has not missed a game.

Rodgers appeared to aggravate his injured thumb on a strip-sack in the second quarter Sunday. He initially was hit by DeMarcus Lawrence, who knocked the ball loose, and Cowboys defensive lineman Johnathan Hankins inadvertently hit Rodgers’ thumb as both attempted to jump on the ball.

Rodgers played every snap in the victory over the Cowboys.

The Packers made only two other changes to their practice report from Monday, with defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt (foot) and rookie receiver Christian Watson (ankle) upgraded to full participants.

Left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), linebacker De'Vondre Campbell (knee), receiver Romeo Doubs (ankle), cornerback Shemar Jean-Charles (ankle) and offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins (knee) remained sidelined.

Cornerback Rasul Douglas (calf), linebacker Kingsley Enagbare (ankle), running back Aaron Jones (shin), receiver Allen Lazard (shoulder), cornerback Keisean Nixon (calf), offensive guard Jon Runyan (knee) and linebacker Preston Smith (shoulder/groin) again were limited.

  1. Can someone explain the logic behind publicly listing injuries and practice/game status?

    I can see submitting it to the league to ensure players are protected by the teams, but I don’t understand why you have to tell the other team.

    That’s hurting players because if you see someone has a thumb injury you know exactly what the opposition is going to target.

  2. Has he released a statement yet blaming someone, because that’s what Aaron Brett Favre Rodgers does best

  3. To my followers, don’t worry. I’ll talk to my buddy Joe Rogan who cured my Toevid. He’s got this magic potion called snake oil, which I’ll apply to my thumb and it will be cured in an instant.

    Before the league mandated injury reporting, big-time gamblers went to great lengths to find out who was injured. Bribery, blackmail, violence and I believe even murder came into play. Team employees that aren’t players were pretty easy marks.

    Now that the league says everyone must know who’s hurt, there’s no “edge” for the gamblers to get.

  5. Let’s see how Rodgers feels by halftime. Titans defense has been pretty good lately, it should be a physical game on both sides of the ball.

  6. >> Can someone explain the logic behind publicly listing injuries and practice/game status?

    This information is made public for gambling purposes. If they did not there would be too much snooping and inside information leaks to interested parties. Even with it going on, you see cases like the line in Minnesota-Buffalo game which swung wildly on every tidbit of information from Josh Allen’s elbow.

  7. It’s all about marketing and keeping the news cycle going. That’s why status is public knowledge… And gambling.
