The QB said he sustained the injury at some point during the first half after getting stepped on, describing it as something “worse” than turf toe.
NFL.com reports Rodgers’ toe injury came after the QB was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of last week’s game, but there was no game status designation on the team’s official injury report the past two weeks.
The veteran QB didn’t leave the game aside from stepping out of the first half seconds early — backup Jordan Love kneeled to run out the clock. Coach Matt LaFleur said Rodgers went to the locker room early before the half to get treatment on his toe.
Despite a “very, very painful” injury, Rodgers organized a Packers comeback that nearly overcame a 13-point deficit late in the third quarter but it wasn’t enough to see the team to a win.
Rodgers completed 23-of-33 passes for four touchdowns and no interceptions in the loss. NFL.com reports the Vikings defense hit Rodgers a total of four times, sacked him twice and forced a fumble which the QB recovered.
“It’s going to be another painful week next week,” Rodgers said. “And then hopefully feel better over the bye.”
