Packers QB Aaron Rodgers drops truth bomb on potential toe surgery
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers revealed the latest update on his quarantine toe injury on Tuesday. Rodgers told The Pat McAfee show that surgery is not out of the question.
“We’re hoping to avoid surgery obviously, but the surgery would be such a minor one. It wouldn’t be something that I’d have to miss time…any surgery that I have at this point, I’m not going to miss any time,” Rodgers said. He explained that if has surgery on a Monday or Tuesday he would be able to play that Sunday.
For now, he said that the toe feels better than it did last week. The Packers QB said that he and his medical team will reassess the situation early next week to decide on a course of action.
Rodgers has been dealing with the lingering toe injury since the beginning of November. He missed the Packers Week 9 matchup against the Chiefs after testing positive for COVID-19. During his quarantine, Rodgers sustained a toe injury that has been a nuisance over the past few weeks.
Despite the injury, Rodgers has continued to play. The Packers are 2-1 in their last three games with Rodgers back. He led the team to a 36-28 victory against the Rams in Week 12. The Packers have Week 13 off, which is great timing for their BYE week. If they do decide that surgery is best for Rodgers’ toe injury, he should have plenty of time to practice and recover with two weeks until their matchup against the Bears.
