Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Lions. He’d likely be playing if this game meant anything to Green Bay and should be back for the playoffs. All of the Packers’ other regulars on offense are active, although it’s unclear how much guys like Aaron Rodgers and Davante Adams will play.

Despite locking up the NFC's #1 seed with their win on Sunday night over Minnesota, Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Monday that he plans to play his staters vs. the Lions this weekend. "Right now the mindset is we're going to play our guys, and we're going to approach it like any other game," LaFleur said. Color us skeptical -- especially when it comes to QB Aaron Rodgers, who's still playing through that toe injury. We'll look for further updates on Rodgers, WR Davante Adams and RBs Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers says his broken pinky toe "feels worse" coming away from Sunday night's win over the Bears. He'll reportedly have it checked out Monday, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that surgery might be an option. If they go that route, it's "believed" that Rodgers could have the operation to put a pin in the toe early in the week and still be able to play at Baltimore on Sunday. We'll watch for further updates on the situation. The toe certainly didn't appear to hinder Rodgers as he lit up the Bears for 341 yards and 4 TDs.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has decided against surgery on his fractured toe "at this time," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports. Rodgers had been considering a procedure over the bye week but will instead opt for just rest and rehab. It sounds like offseason surgery is still a possibility. Although he's admitted that the toe is an issue, it hasn't impacted his play over the last 2 weeks. Rodgers has racked up 692 passing yards with 6 TDs.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told (and showed) the media on Wednesday that he's dealing with a fractured toe. He's admitted that it's an issue but certainly didn't seem bothered by it while throwing for 385 yards and 4 TDs in last week's loss to the Vikings. We'll continue to keep an eye on him but aren't adjusting Rodgers' Week 12 projections. The Packers have a Week 13 bye.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers' toe injury is "real and concerning," NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says. Rodgers downplayed the issue this week, but he only got in a limited practice on Friday. And, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero, Rodgers only took about 15 reps in that practice. The lack of practice time is less of a concern than the fact that Rodgers' mobility figures to be limited by this injury. And Rapoport hears that Rodgers will likely be dealing with it for the rest of the season. We'll see how he fares vs. the Vikings today.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (toe) is not listed on the final injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, but we never sensed any concern about his status. The toe shouldn't be a factor in Sunday's game vs. the Vikings.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (toe) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He didn't seem worried about his Week 11 status when talking to reporters on Wednesday, but this has certainly become a situation to monitor. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers did not practice on Wednesday and is on the injury report with a toe. "I'm definitely playing Sunday," Rodgers told reporters. "Today was a mental day so I think a number of us were either limited or DNPs. Thankful to get a day to just to do some rehab. See how the week plays out practice-wise, but definitely playing Sunday." We'll keep an eye on this, but it doesn't sound like we need to worry about Rodgers' status for Sunday's game vs. the Vikings.

The Packers have activated QB Aaron Rodgers from the COVID list, making him officially available for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. Green Bay also added Rodgers to the injury report with a toe issue, but he carries no game status. Rodgers might have tripped over 1 of the photographers chasing anyone who looks remotely like him (with a mask on) in public over the past week.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is set to be cleared from the COVID list and start Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Rodgers hasn't logged an official practice since October 27 -- about 2-and-a-half weeks ago. He participated in meetings virtually throughout this week and will take part in Saturday's walkthrough. The missed time is less of a concern considering this is a 17-year veteran who's been in HC Matt LaFleur's offense since 2019.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID and will miss Sunday's game against the Chiefs, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero. That will give Jordan Love the start. We'll see whether any other Packers follow Rodgers to this week's COVID list, as we saw with Allen Lazard behind Davante Adams last week.

Update: Rodgers is unvaccinated, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That means Rodgers is out a minimum of 10 days. He's eligible but not guaranteed to be activated in time to play Week 10.

Packers WR Allen Lazard has joined WR Davante Adams on the COVID list. Both guys are virtual locks to miss Thursday night's game vs. the Cardinals. We'll see if Green Bay loses anyone else for that one. The Packers are currently down to WRs Randall Cobb, Equanimeous St. Brown and Amari Rodgers on the active roster. WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling is eligible to come off IR. WRs Juwann Winfree and Chris Blair are on the practice squad. RB Aaron Jones and TE Robert Tonyan figure to play big roles in the passing game on Thursday night.

The Packers are keeping LT David Bakhtiari on the PUP list to begin the regular season, as he continues to work back from a late-2020 ACL tear. We're not downgrading QB Aaron Rodgers or RB Aaron Jones on this news, but it'll be an area to watch early in the year. The move means Bakhtiari will miss at least the 1st 6 weeks.

WR Randall Cobb tweeted that he's been traded to the Packers, and NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that the deal will be done once Green Bay gains cap space to make room. Cobb spent his first 8 seasons with QB Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, finishing as a top 30 fantasy WR 3 times (2012, 2014 and 2015). He posted a 55-828-3 line and WR42 PPR finish with the Cowboys in 2019. Then in Houston last year, Cobb tallied 38 catches, 441 yards and 3 scores in 10 games. He finished 60th in PPR points per game. But Cobb ranked a respectable 26th in yards per target, 52nd in yards per route run and 50th in Pro Football Focus receiving grade among 99 WRs with 40+ targets. Rodgers clearly had a big say in this move -- and we'd expect him to make sure Cobb is the starting slot receiver this season. That'll leave Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard and rookie Amari Rodgers fighting for the last spot in 3-WR sets. In Houston, meanwhile, Cobb's departure frees up the starting slot job. Consider newly acquired WR Anthony Miller the favorite to win that.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers reported for the start of training camp on Tuesday. It's still unclear if he and the team have officially agreed to whatever deal they're reportedly working on. But it sure looks like he's committed to play in Green Bay for at least 1 more season. We've bumped Rodgers, WR Davante Adams and RB Aaron Jones up the rankings.
