The talk of the Green Bay Packers in recent weeks has been the health of Aaron Rodgers and his injured toe. The star quarterback had the bye week to rest up the ailment ahead of a contest against the Bears. Rodgers gave another update on his injured toe while giving his weekly appearance on the Pat McAfee show.

“I did get some great information about my foot. There was nothing really revolutionary,” Rodgers said. “There was no mindset change or anything. The biggest key is rest. I wish that there was another one of these [bye] weeks, so I could get 14 to 21 great days without doing anything. But the toe is improving and we’ll see how it feels later in the week.”

No real mindset changes on the Aaron Rodgers toe injury, though it’s good news for Packers fans that the information was all good. It sounds like the rest that Rodgers was able to get while on bye with Green Bay did him some good.

Still, it’s interesting to hear Rodgers say that any plan the Packers came up with would have involved him playing through the ailments. Green Bay, and Rodgers, clearly understand the importance of the number-one seed in the NFC, especially when there’s a chance for the NFC playoffs to have to go through Lambeau Field.

Green Bay seems likely to continue managing Rodgers’ practice reps ahead of the game against the Bears, as they did the week before the bye. That’s the smartest way to handle an injury situation where it’s clear that the player would benefit from sitting out a game, but the team, or player, isn’t interested in missing any action.

Besides, Rodgers looked just fine against the Los Angeles Rams after not practicing, throwing for over 300 yards with three total touchdowns. Chances are, he’ll look equally good against the Bears, a team he loves playing against.
