Following a loss during last year’s playoffs, Rodgers and gang will keep the Rams from extracting their revenge.
Aaron Rodgers did not practice this week due to his toe injury — however, he is almost certain to play today against Los Angeles. This comes after only practicing on Friday of last week prior to the Vikings game in which he seemed to play near the top of his ability. According to coach LaFleur, Rodgers was still involved during practice with assisting Jordan Love with play calling:
Well, he came down to practice. He didn’t participate in practice, but he was out there and relaying the calls to Jordan, just getting that practice of just saying the playcalls.
Rodgers has mentioned before that the fracture in his toe involves managing a lot of pain and likened it to being more painful than turf toe.
One very important match-up to watch is going to be WR Davante Adams and Rams CB Jalen Ramsey. Two that are among the best in the league at their respective positions will be facing off. If you give any weight to PFF rankings, they are quite literally the best at their positions. 247Sports has a great write-up on this duo, but the ultimate conclusion is that, much like in the playoffs, we may not see much action between the two as we all would hope.

Packers vs Rams – Fox TV Broadcast Map
RB Aaron Jones was active during practice some this week, but is still listed as questionable. Something to consider:
Packers’ RB Aaron Jones, listed as questionable due to a knee injury, wants to play vs. the Rams but Green Bay also has a bye next week and can get two weeks of rest for him if he doesn’t play Sunday, per source. Packers not expected to make final decision until pre-game warmups.
The Packers took the cautious route with Davante Adams in the past and this could be their same thought process with Jones.
#Packers RB Aaron Jones (knee) will be a game-time decision today against the #Rams, per source. Jones practiced all week and there’s some optimism he’ll play, but they'll work him out pregame to see how he feels before making the final call.
Meanwhile, Rashan Gary is expected to be playing today
Update: Fixed brain fart in paragraph one. Added info on Rashan Gary. Fixed start time.
