Aaron Rodgers sits out Week 16 practice with toe injury but not on final injury report for Browns games

The Packers QB has been sitting out practice to rest his toe injury. We break down the impact heading into Week 16.

Thursday update: Rodgers was a DNP for a third straight day but was not included on the final injury report. He will have few if any practices the rest of the season, but he will continue starting like normal.

Wednesday update: Rodgers did not practice for a second consecutive day. This is likely to become a regular occurrence given his toe injury. He’ll play this Saturday against the Browns even if he does not get in a practice on Thursday.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers did not participate in practice on Tuesday due to the lingering toe injury he’s been playing through. This has been common the past few weeks since Rodgers sustained the injury, so we can expect the status to stay the same on Wednesday and Thursday.

Fantasy football implications

There’s no much to see here. Rodgers will play Saturday on Christmas Day in Week 16 vs. the Cleveland Browns and there’s no reason to really doubt that. We know that Rodgers is playing through pain and that surgery is likely once the season is over. Until then, A-Rod will sit out of practices during the week. It’s not like he needs to be out there much anyway at this point.

In Week 15, the Packers defeated the Baltimore Ravens 31-30 on the road to improve to 11-3, the best record in the NFL heading into Week 16. Rodgers threw for 3 TDs in the win and overtook Tom Brady as NFL MVP favorite at +125 with three games to go.
