Aaron Rodgers says toe ‘feels worse’ but also ‘okay’
Reigning NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers missed the Green Bay Packers’ practice on Wednesday due to the ongoing injury with his pinky toe.
Rodgers said his injury felt worse following the Packers’ victory against the Chicago Bears 45-30 last Sunday.
Rodgers initially told reporters on Wednesday that his toe was okay. The nine-time Pro Bowler, however, was reported to likely continue missing practice sessions until Friday.
“Aaron Rodgers says he was tackled on a third-and-long early vs. Bears, and that exacerbated pain in his broken pinkie toe,” said Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “He says toe feels OK now, but unlikely he’ll practice until Friday.”
However, Rodgers also said Sunday after the game that “it feels worse.”
“I don’t know what kind of setback that I had tonight but we’ll look at it tomorrow,” Rodgers said. “But definitely took a step back tonight.”
ESPN also reported on Sunday that Rodgers’ injury will last until the end of the season. It is understood that Rodgers broke his toe in November during his COVID-19 quarantine.
Despite having to endure the pain, Rodgers previously said that surgery on his toe would be a “last resort.”
Green Bay, currently 10-3, is set to face the Baltimore Ravens, currently 8-5, on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET.
