“I’m going to deal with the pain,” Rodgers said Wednesday. “It’s all about pain management. I’m going to deal with the pain as this goes on, and hopefully we get some healing during the weeks with limited practice reps. I’ll try to be on the practice field as much as I can, deal with the pain, and the goal is to play every single week.”
The NFC North-leading Packers (8-3) host the Los Angeles Rams (7-3) on Sunday and then have the next week off.
Rodgers, who has said the injury involves his pinky toe, noted Wednesday there are surgical options that wouldn’t involve him missing any games.
“I’ll definitely look at all options over the bye and decide what would be best to make sure that I get to the finish line,” Rodgers said.
When he was asked about it Wednesday, Rodgers revealed his bare left foot during his Zoom session with reporters.
“Oh, there’s no lesions whatsoever,” Rodgers said. “Oh, what a surprise. No, that’s actually called disinformation, when you perpetuate false information about an individual.”
The injury will continue to limit Rodgers’ practice time.
Rodgers practiced only on Friday last week, yet he still went 23 of 33 for 385 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions against the Vikings.
“It looked painful for him, but he looked pretty mobile, pretty special against the Vikings last week, so I don’t put much merit into that," Rams coach Sean McVay said. "He’s a great player and he sure looks every bit as good as he always has.”
Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Rodgers will have a similar practice schedule this week. Rodgers didn't practice Wednesday.
“Certainly we’ll handle it day by day, but a lot of it’s just going to be on how he’s feeling,” LaFleur said.
NOTES: The Packers signed OL Jon Dietzen to the practice squad and placed OLB Jonathan Garvin on the reserve/COVID-19 list. ... RB Aaron Jones (knee), OLB Rashan Gary (elbow) and WR Allen Lazard (shoulder) had limited practice participation Wednesday. None of the three played at Minnesota. ... CB Kevin King (hip/knee) and WR/KR Malik Taylor (abdomen) didn't practice Wednesday.
