In case you missed it, Aaron Rodgers had an interesting Friday

  In case you missed it, Aaron Rodgers had an interesting Friday Plenty of you only spend time visiting outlets like this when not on your own personal time. Which is fine with me, as long as you don’t do it so much that you end up having 168 hours per week of personal time. So now that you’re back at work, you may be curious about [more]So now that you’re back at work, you may be curious about everything that happened on Friday afternoon, starting with the memorable Aaron Rodgers stream-of-consciousness in which he took an anti-vaccine position, insisted he’s not anti-vaxx, claimed he never agreed to rules that his union accepted on his behalf, blamed the media, the “woke mob,”and “cancel culture” for his decision to not be as candid as he should have been about his unvacc

By Associated Press. (AP) — The Green Bay Packers ’ imperfect offense hasn’t been getting the practice it needs. And it might not get it this week, either. Reigning MVP quarterback Aaron Rodgers wasn’t on the practice field Wednesday because of an injured toe .

LaFleur said Aaron Rodgers will be limited in practice this week, if he participates at all, but his nagging toe injury won't sideline him for the game. Green Bay has been forced to weather multiple absences from key players, including Rodgers ,  Davante Adams  and Aaron Jones , and unfortunately will now add Jenkins to that group. While Rodgers ' and Adams' absences were only temporary, the Packers will have to find a solution to replace Jenkins until Bakhtiari is able to make his 2021 debut.

Just as he said he would, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers started for what became Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Minnesota Vikings that dropped the Packers to 8-3 despite what he later called a "very, very painful" lingering toe injury he first picked up at some point before the win over the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 14.

The Packers lost Pro Bowl offensive lineman Elgton Jenkins for the remainder of the season with a torn ACL he suffered in Minnesota, but head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters Monday Rodgers is on track to be in the lineup for this coming Sunday's contest against the 7-3 Los Angeles Rams ahead of Green Bay's bye.

NFL chief medical officer pushes back on Aaron Rodgers' claim that some COVID-19 protocols are 'not based in science'

  NFL chief medical officer pushes back on Aaron Rodgers' claim that some COVID-19 protocols are 'not based in science' Allen Sills said the NFL's COVID-19 protocols are "always based on science" despite Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' claim to the contrary.“We've been very consistent,” Sills told reporters during a conference call on Wednesday. “First of all, these are things that we decided collectively with the players association (NFLPA). They're always based on science. The science that at best we understand for public health, but also our own data. We are constantly looking at our own data in every way possible, to see where we might still be vulnerable and what parts of our protocols we think are particularly effective.

Aaron Rodgers ’ mysterious toe injury could be a problem all season. Compared to Aaron Rodgers ’ last health issue, a toe injury seems minor and hardly controversial. But it’s something the Packers quarterback, 37, will have to deal with for the rest of the season, NFL Network reported Sunday. Rodgers is set to play Sunday against the Vikings, his second straight start after missing a game when he tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this month, but the mysterious toe issue is a “real and concerning injury,” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Rodgers situation may not be resolved anytime soon, and the last thing LaFleur wants is for the players who are in Green Bay to be distracted from their opportunity for individual improvement over the next month. "That is something we did talk about briefly with our team," LaFleur said after Rodgers ' appearance on Kenny Mayne's final ESPN SportsCenter episode Monday night provided no clarity on what the Packers can do to mend the rift with their franchise quarterback. LaFleur simply reiterated what he said two weeks ago, that the team is continuing to work through this and wants him back.

Per Nick Shook of the NFL's website, LaFleur added Rodgers is set to be limited if he participates in practices at all this week. The reigning NFL Most Valuable Player completed 23-of-33 passes for 385 yards and four touchdowns in the loss to Minnesota but, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN, admitted after the defeat he'll be battling discomfort through at least the Rams game.

"I'm just going to have to get to the bye and hope I can get some healing over the bye week," Rodgers explained at that time. "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. Got stepped on the first half, and that kind of activated all the symptoms I was having. It's going to be another painful week and next week, and then hopefully start to feel a little better on the bye."

The Packers are 7-point underdogs at BetMGM, an 8-point shift in the spread after the Rodgers news. Jordan Love, who didn't play at all last season and played OK in the preseason, will get his first start . The Packers having to turn to Love, the pick that set off all the offseason Rodgers drama, is rich with irony. He has first-round talent and pedigree. He was a mistake-prone quarterback his last season at Utah State, but the Packers will probably minimize him in the game plan. And the Chiefs might not have the defense that can take advantage of Love’s inexperience anyway.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will miss his team's trip to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday due to Covid-19 protocols.
