After the Green Bay Packers defeated the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, quarterback Aaron Rodgers made a decision on whether to have surgery on his injured toe. He said he’s holding off on surgery to repair the toe, which he injured during a recent workout. The QB hurt his toe while he was off for a COVID-19 quarantine.
Pro Football Talk has reported that he will forego surgery on the injured appendage. Despite the injury and a swirl of controversy surrounding his COVID vaccination status, Rodgers has performed well. He’s thrown for 692 yards and no interceptions in his last two outings. ESPN’s Ian Rapaport confirmed the report via Twitter.
“#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers does not plan to have surgery on his toe at this time, per me and @TomPelissero. At this time is key. The hope is during the bye it will heal and improve.”
The Packers take on the lowly Chicago Bears next in week 14. Rodgers will have some time to rest the injury. The team is hoping it heals up before the game with the Bears.
Despite Rodgers’ recent COVID diagnosis, Green Bay is 9-3 and in first place in the NFC North. They defeated a very solid Rams team 36-28 on Sunday. Rodgers went 28/45 for 307 yards and 2 touchdowns. He hooked up with receiver Davante Adams for 104 through the air.
It’s been a turbulent season for Aaron Rodgers. He has faced heavy criticism and fan backlash since reports emerged that he had misled the league, the team, and the public about receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. Then, he caught the virus and had to miss a game. Things seem to finally be going smoothly again in Green Bay.
