Packers’ Aaron Rodgers makes decision on toe surgery
The Green Bay Packers currently hold a 9-3 record and are in second place in the NFC Playoff race. This team is in a great spot right now as they enter the bye week and receive some much-needed rest for the final stretch of the season. Aaron Rodgers has been dealing with a toe injury and seems to have come up with a decision on his toe surgery.
According to Ian Rapoport, “Aaron Rodgers does not plan to have surgery on his toe at this time.” Considering the Packers are entering the bye week, the franchise is hopeful Rodgers’ toe “will heal and improve.”

This might have been the Packers’ goal all along. If Rodgers could get to the bye week, he’d be given a real chance to heal his toe before getting back in action. The injury isn’t serious, but it’s enough to make Green Bay’s quarterback unavailable during practice.
It didn’t seem to bother him on Sunday, as Rodgers threw for 307 yards while scoring three total touchdowns. Packers fans were cheering “MVP” as he left the field after the game.
The bye week comes at the most crucial time for the Packers. Rodgers will be able to heal his toe and Aaron Jones will have another week to get right. Meanwhile, David Bakhtiari, Jaire Alexander, and Za’Darius Smith are all in line to return soon. The Packers are one of the best teams in the league and they’re about to get better after the bye week.
Keep an eye on the Packers, as this team aims to take over the league when they return in Week 14.
