Incumbent NFL MVP did not practice last Wednesday or Thursday due to injury, but returned as a limited participant on Friday. While he has no injury designation for Sunday, Rodgers told reporters after the game he was in pain and the problem was “a little bit worse than the big toe.” Green Bay has another big game next week with Los Angeles Rams, but Rodgers has his eyes on Week 13 bye – hopefully staying healthy.

Rodgers said: ‘I’m going to have to say goodbye and hopefully I can heal during goodbye week’ via ESPN. “Probably the same schedule next week. I’m sore. I came in early at half-time to check. It was very, very painful. I went into the first half, and that kind of triggered all the attacks. It’s going to be another painful week and next week, and then hopefully feeling a little better by goodbye.”
Even with a toe injury, Rodgers completed 23 of 33 passes for a season-high 385 yards and four touchdowns on Sunday. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport reported this weekend that the injury is a matter of concern and something Rodgers will likely have to deal with for the rest of the season. The Packers have made the NFC Championship Game two years in a row and appear to be a legitimate contender once again. However, their cap will be significantly capped, should Rodgers be hit for the rest of the year with this issue.
