    Can Green Bay Packers Rodgers Make Excuses After Loss To Vikings?

    Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback, discusses his foot injury during a post-game press conference. He endured the injury early in Sunday’s game. Rodgers suffered a disappointing loss to the Minnesota Vikings within the last seconds of the game, 34-31. Early in the game, Rodgers actually left the field before halftime was over to get checked out in the locker room.

    Rodgers originally was prepared to get the ball back. However, when they did, Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur sent in backup quarterback Jordan Love to take the final snap. While he addressed the issue in his post-game press conference, he did not go into specifics about his toe. This became an issue during his COVID-19 quarantine earlier this month, per ESPN.

    Rodgers Ducks and Dodges Questions

    Rodgers having media experience would not allow any details out to any reporter when asked about his injured toe. He emphasized that it’s “a little worse than turf toe.” He believes the bye week will help give him time off his feet which will help him heal. However, until then, he doesn’t believe it’s going to get any better without rest, which requires him to stay off his feet. The Packers have one more key match up that will help shape the NFC playoff picture against the Los Angeles Rams before their bye week.

    “I just need to reach the bye week and hope for some healing during that time,” Rodgers expressed. “Probably the same schedule next week. Was in a lot of pain. Went in at halftime early to get it checked out. It’s very, very painful. I got stepped on in the first half, and it triggered all the symptoms I was experiencing. It’s going to be another week of pain, and then hopefully I’ll start feeling a bit better during the bye.

    Green Bay Packers Plan around Rodger’s Toe Injury

    Most likely, Rodgers will not participate in practice as much this week. Last week, he was limited and only appeared in his practice Friday. One may understand, how this could have affected his production Sunday and caused a slow start. Nonetheless, Rodgers was still able to throw for 385 yards and four touchdowns. This included his 75-yard bomb to Marquez Valdes-Scanting which tied the game with two minutes left in the game.

    “In the second half, we found our groove,” said Packers coach Matt LaFleur. “We were more aggressive and executed well. There were many positives in the game. We just need to improve our finishing on a few drives.”

    “Our defense has been strong, but sometimes we need to outscore teams with strong offenses,” Rodgers explained. “We had a chance to score 40 points today, and when you’re facing a hot offense with talented quarterbacks, receivers, and running backs, you have to keep putting points on the board.”
