Aaron Rodgers has a thumb injury
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers sustained a thumb injury in London. Rodgers said he sustained the injury on the game’s final play against the New York Giants. Earlier Wednesday, head coach Matt LaFleur offered an update on Rodgers’ status, saying he wasn’t worried about his game time status.
According to the Packers’ Week 6 injury report released Wednesday afternoon, Rodgers has a right thumb injury and did not participate in Wednesday’s practice. There were several other significant pieces of the offense on the injury report for the Packers. Offensive linemen Elgton Jenkins and David Bakhtiari once again made appearances. Christian Watson was a non-participant in Wednesday’s practice. LaFleur said Wednesday that Watson’s injury was not expected to be long-term.
Packers DNP Wednesday
- QB Aaron Rodgers, Thumb
- LB Tipa Galeai, Hamstring
- WR Christian Watson, Hamstring
- OL David Bakhtiari, Knee
- OL Elgton Jenkins, Knee
- DL Devonte Wyatt, Quadricep
Even if Rodgers is not expected to miss Sunday’s game, the non-participation is concerning. On The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers said his thumb was still hurting and that he thought he could spin it come game time. The injury report will be something to keep an eye on this week. Rodgers needs all the reps he can get with his wide receivers.
