Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (toe) returns to practice

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers practiced on Friday for the first time since breaking his left pinkie toe more than three weeks ago.

Rodgers, who played through the pain in Green Bay’s past three games, appears to have benefited from the extra downtime during the bye week.

“The biggest key is rest,” he said during an appearance earlier this week on “The Pat McAfee Show.” “I wish there was another one of these (bye) weeks so I could get 14 to 21 great days without doing anything, but the toe is improving.”

Rodgers, 38, has completed 66.2 percent of his passes for 2,878 yards with 23 touchdowns and four interceptions in 11 starts this season (9-2 record).

The Packers (9-3) return to action Sunday night against the NFC North rival Chicago Bears (4-8) at Lambeau Field. Rodgers had two touchdown passes and a touchdown run in a 24-14 win at Chicago in Week 6.

Rodgers said he injured the toe while training on his own during his COVID-19 isolation period in early November. The injury could require surgery after the season.
