“There’s a lot of options on the table,” Rodgers said. “One option that’s not on the table is sitting out. So I’m going to push through this.”
The Packers star quarterback revealed he’s dealing with an injury to his pinky toe. Seemingly everyone in Green Bay is dealing with something this season.
The resilient Packers have overcome injuries to key players like Jaire Alexander, David Bakhtiari, and Aaron Jones on their way to an 8-3 record.
Most recently, Green Bay lost fill-in left tackle Elgton Jenkins suffered a season-ending knee injury. The 25-year-old filled in admirably for Bakhtiari, despite playing out of his natural position of left guard.

The injuries haven’t broken Green Bay through 11 weeks though. Even with Sunday’s 34-31 loss to the division rival Vikings, Green Bay still sits atop the NFC North with a healthy lead.
Aaron Rodgers has been known to power through injuries. With another chance at what looks like could be another deep playoff run, the Packers All-Pro QB will look to pull out a W in sunny Los Angeles on Sunday.
