Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is close to getting his toe injury under control. There’s increasing confidence that the injury will be completely healed by the time the Packers take on the NFC Divisional Round at Lambeau Field later in the month.
” I think so,” Rodgers replied Sunday to a question about whether he was able to be healed this year. I feel that we are getting closer to Detroit without any problems. Although we haven’t had an X-ray in over a week, there has been significant healing and we are getting closer to 100 percent. I anticipate that will be with the bye .”
The Packers have won the No. The Packers
were the No. 1 seed in NFC . They will be given a bye in the first round of the playoffs.
Rodgers, and the other starters, are expected play in the season finale in Detroit on Sunday. However, a full week off during Wild Card Weekend may get him over the hump to put the injury behind him.
Rodgers, who threw two touchdown passes in a 37-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, said he practiced on Friday without any inhibitions and was tempted to practice on Thursday, and he didn’t need a pre-game shot for the pain on Sunday.
” This was another great week for me,” Rodgers stated.
Rodgers expects to practice at minimum two days this week. Most likely, Thursday and Friday.
The only thing that is worrying Rodgers right now is a setback. This is likely to happen during Sunday’s finale at Detroit. Rodgers is on the verge of overcoming a few setbacks, but Rodgers’ toe injury should not be a problem.
Rodgers wasn’t statistically affected by the issue. The injury occurred in quarantine, which he underwent in November. Rodgers completed 70.2 per cent of his passes in the seven previous games. He averaged 8.2 yards per pass and threw 18 touchdowns.
