Aaron Rodgers has revealed he is considering multiple options to heal his toe injury, including a potential surgery, according to Heavy. The 37-year-old talked about his injured toe in detail during an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.
According to Rodgers, his injury became “worse than turf toe” and “very, very painful” following Green Bay Packers 34-31 loss to the Minnesota Vikings this past Sunday.
The star quarterback added that he expects the injury to stay unless a procedure is done after the current season. He said he is also considering taking a complete rest during practice sessions.
“I feel similar to how I felt last Tuesday,” Rodgers told podcast host McAfee. He continued, “This is something that’s not going to go away. I’m not sure what the bye week is gonna look like, there’s a lot of options on the table. One option that is not on the table is sitting out. I’m going to push through this and keep playing.”
Rodgers went into detail about the nature of the injury, saying it is a “bone issue” with his pinky toe that feels worse than his previous experience with having turf toe, which deals with the joint of the big toe.
