Aaron Rodgers will have to deal with a nagging toe injury for the rest of the season.
Before the Packers game on Sunday, Rodgers was limited in practice because he was bothered by a toe injury that was described as “concerning.”
#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.

After the Packers’ loss to the Vikings, Rodgers says the injury is worse than turf toe and is “really, really painful” right now.
#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told reporters that his toe injury is "a little worse" than having turf toe. Says it's "very, very painful" and it got even worse after someone stepped on it during the first half.
He still hasn't said how or when the injury happened.
