According to Tom Pelissero’s report from NFL Network, Packers quarterback suffers a toe injury. The diagnosis indicates that said injury will not keep him away from the grids, but will bother him until the end of the season.
#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will start today against the #Vikings despite a painful toe injury that limited him to only about 15 reps in practice Friday, per sources. The hope is it’ll improve with rest at the bye, but between the toe and COVID, limited practice time is a concern.
