When asked about it on Wednesday, Rodgers revealed his bare feet during his Zoom session with reporters. “Oh, there’s no wound,” Rodgers said. “Oh, what a surprise. No, it’s actually called propaganda, when you give false information about a person.”

Rodgers only practiced on Fridays last week, yet he went on to score 23 of 33 for 385 yards with four touchdowns and no interception against the Vikings.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Rodgers will have a similar training schedule this week. Rodgers did not practice on Wednesday. “Of course we’ll handle it day in and day out, but a lot of it will be just about how he’s feeling,” Lafleur said.
