    No one is sleeping on Packers star outside linebacker Za’Darius Smith, but a looming return was not something we expected just yet. On the Packers’ bye week, fans might’ve received a helpful hint in terms of Smith’s health heading into the latter end of the season. The former Pro Bowl outside linebacker has been out since the first game of the season. Along with Smith, Jaire Alexander could also be set to return. Even without their two playmakers, the Packers’ defense has been formidable, ranking top-10 in several key categories. However, the injury bug may finally be catching up to them, as the last two weeks, Green Bay gave up 28 points to the Los Angeles Rams in an eventual win and 34 points in a loss to the division-rival Vikings. Packers: When will Za’Darius Smith return?Smith has an opt out after this season, but it’s unlikely he’ll exercise that coming off injury. The Packers will then owe Smith $14.5 million, with an enormous cap hit to boot. Expect Brian Gutekunst to try and push that cap hit down the...
    TAMPA BAY (AP) — Aaron Rodgers flaunts the NFL/NFLPA coronavirus protocols and gets a fine that barely shows up in his paycheck. Antonio Brown and two others do the same and get three-game suspensions. READ MORE: Report: Antonio Brown Accused Of Obtaining Fake COVID-19 Vaccination CardWhat gives? It’s complicated, but in some ways it’s also pretty simple why the Packers quarterback was fined $14,650, a sum negotiated between the league and the players’ union while developing the COVID-19 protocols. And why Brown, teammate Mike Edwards and former Buccaneers player John Franklin III took a much bigger hit for falsifying vaccination documents. Rodgers was fined for not wearing a mask in some instances, at a Halloween party and during press conferences. A joint investigation by the NFL and union revealed that he was wearing a mask at other points and complied with the protocols.

    Aaron Rodgers was spotted outside a Los Angeles doctor’s office walking with a renowned orthopedics and sports medicine physician Friday with the Green Bay Packers on a bye this week. Rodgers was seen walking with Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache in the parking lot outside the offices of Kerlan-Jobe orthopedics. ElAttrache is a specialist in sports medicine as well as shoulder, elbow and knee injuries. He’s the chairman of the Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Foundation and the head team physician for the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Rams, according to his personal website.

(4CRNS, WCP / BACKGRID) It’s unclear exactly what Rodgers was seeing the doctor about, but he has been dealing with a toe injury he suffered last month when he was isolating after testing positive for COVID-19. He said he fractured his toe and later dispelled rumors he was dealing with so-called "COVID toe." "The injury I suffered when I was in quarantine doing my own workouts...
    The Denver Police Department has fired one of its officers after he failed to give medical assistance to a dying 18-year-old in what was termed a 'callous lack of humanity'. Dewayne Rodgers, a 16-year veteran of the force, arrived at a shooting scene at the 10000 block of East Harvard Avenue, near Cherry Creek County Club, on September 7, 2020. He found shooting victim JaLonte Jones, 18, lying in the road, having been shot in the leg. Rodgers called an ambulance but did not render any medical assistance, despite all Denver police officers being equipped with tourniquets and trained on how to use them since 2014. Jones begged the officer to help him, but Rodgers instead spent the 13 minutes until the ambulance arrived asking Jones his name, where he lived, and who shot him, body camera footage shows. Jones can be heard telling Rodgers 'I'm dying' before later being pronounced dead at a hospital. Rodgers was fired on November 22. Mary Dulacki, chief deputy executive director of Denver's department of public safety, signed the documents detailing Rodgers's firing. 'The...
    DENVER (CBS4) — A Denver Police officer has been fired after an investigation ruled he made no attempts to “render aid” to a gunshot victim, who ultimately died from his injuries. “The part that bothers me the most is that when the officers showed up, they were supposed to be there to help my child, and he essentially stood there and watched him die, like, what kind of person are you?” said Dedranette Jones. Dedranette is the mother of 18-year-old JeLonte Jones, who was shot and killed last fall, during what she believes began as argument over a girl. She only learned in the recent trial for the shooter that the responding officer, Dewayne Rodgers, could have taken steps to try to keep him alive, but did nothing. “The roughest part was the fact that I had sat for a little over a year, thinking that my son had died at the hospital, and to see this body cam and to know the last thing he said was, ‘I’m dying’, and essentially, he was dead in that parking lot before...
    Getty Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers looks to the scoreboard during the second half of a game against the Arizona Cardinals at State Farm Stadium on October 28, 2021 in Glendale, Arizona. The Green Bay Packers have the NFL’s Most Valuable Player captaining their huddle last season. Nearly a year has gone by, but nothing has changed, except perception. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has proven week in and week out that he is the best player in the league again this season, but it appears the reigning MVP could get railroaded out of the honor due to forces existing outside the lines of play. FanDuel’s MVP odds have the Green Bay QB listed as +650 to win the award, which is good enough for only third place. Rodgers is slotted behind Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills at +420, and Tom Brady of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +300. The only problem? Rodgers has been better than both of them. Rodgers has posted a record of 9-2, missing one game due to virus protocols, which the...

    The NFL suspended Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown three games for misrepresenting his vaccination status, but according to ESPN’S Stephen A. Smith, it should’ve been more. Brown was accused by his former personal chef of obtaining a fake vaccine card to avoid NFL protocols this season. The wide receiver denied the claim at first, but has since waived his right to appeal the suspension handed down by the NFL. “There’s not even a rule in the NFL prohibiting you as a player from playing if you’re not vaccinated,” Smith noted Friday morning on First Take. “What it says is that you have to go through additional safety protocols that could be a bit more arduous…but you don’t HAVE to get vaccinated in order to play.” “And still, STILL you lied,” Smith ranted. “He might be vaccinated now, but the fact of the matter is you wouldn’t be suspended if you were vaccinated at the time that the NFL was investigating the matter.” According to reports, after using the fake vaccine card, Brown ultimately decided to get the jab...
    Let’s do a quick comparison to test your sports prejudices: Quarterback A has thrown 23 TD passes and 4 interceptions. He’s averaging 261.6 passing yards per game and his passer rating is 105.5. Quarterback B has thrown 23 TD passes and 3 interceptions. He’s averaging 273.9 passing yards per game and his passer rating is 105.3.

Quarterback A, the guy with the generally inferior statistics, is Aaron Rodgers. And he’s among the leading candidates for the NFL MVP award because he tilts the field in favor of his team, which combined with an effective defense, has turned...
    DENVER (CBS4) – A Denver police officer is on administrative leave after a departmental review found he did not help a man found shot in the leg. That man ultimately died. Officer Dewayne Rodgers and his partner were first on scene of a shots fired call on the 10100 East Harvard Avenue the morning of Sept. 7, 2020. When they arrived, a man flagged down the officers and led them to the shooting victim. Rodgers called for an ambulance while his partner placed crime scene tape around the area.

    Antonio Brown #81 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers runs with the ball against Rodney McLeod #23 of the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on October 14, 2021 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.Mitchell Leff | Getty Images The NFL said Thursday that it had suspended Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown and two other players for three games without pay for lying about their Covid-19 vaccination status. Brown, Buccaneers safety Mike Edwards and free agent John Franklin III all accepted their discipline and waived their right of appeal after a probe in which they were represented by the players' union, the NFL said in a statement.  "That review supported those allegations and found that the three players violated the protocols," the NFL said. The NFL did not provide additional details on the probe. Brown's vaccination status was first questioned last month when the Tampa Bay Times alleged he had paid for fake coronavirus vaccine cards before training camp. "The health and safety of players and personnel is our top priority," the NFL and NFL Players Association said in a joint statement...
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown has been suspended for three games for misrepresenting his vaccine status, yet Aaron Rodgers has not. On Thursday afternoon, the outcome of the NFL investigation into the allegation that Antonio Brown used a fake vaccine card became public. It was determined that Brown and two others “misrepresented (their) vaccination status under the NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 Protocols,” resulting in a three-game suspension for Brown. #Bucs WR Antonio Brown was determined to have misrepresented his vaccination status under the NFL-NFLPA COVID-19 Protocols. The review supported those allegations and found that Brown — and two others — violated protocols. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) December 2, 2021 The NFL has been clear about the protocol for when players break specific aspects of the agreement, such as “failing or refusing to fully cooperate with an investigation” by the NFL or “refusal to submit to required virus testing under the Screening and Testing Protocol.” There’s no addendum specifying what the league would do if a player did not wear a mask at press conferences, putting journalists at risk for...
    Getty Vikings play-by-play announcer Paul Allen roasted a Packers coach following the Vikings' 34-31- victory over the Packers on Sunday, Nov. 21, 2021. After a stellar 9-3 start to the season, the Green Bay Packers appear to have one of the most desirable coaching staffs in the NFL. But it isn’t just the usual suspects at offensive and defensive coordinator who are getting looks for potential head coaching positions expected to open up later this year or in the offseason. According to a report from Peter Schrager, of Fox Sports, at least one Packers position coach has potentially set himself up for a big promotion with his performance in 2021. “[The Packers] offenisve line coach, Adam Stenavich, is now getting head coaching buzz … because when you lose [David] Bakhtiari and you lose [Elgton] Jenkins and you lose Josh Myers — and oh yeah, Cory Linsley signed for the highest contract ever given to a center in the offseason — and you get better? That’s awesome,” Schrager said. The NFL analyst offered up the news that front offices...
    Authorities have charged a Philadelphia man for fleeing the scene of a deadly crash on Thanksgiving Day in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Michael R. Rodgers Jr., 29, has been charged with knowingly leaving the scene of a fatal accident and obstruction, the Cherry Hill Police Department announced Thursday. He has not been arrested yet. Tabreia Ewing, 29, of Camden, was crossing the westbound lanes of Route 70 near the Garden State Park shopping center on Nov. 25 at 7:10 p.m. when police say she was struck by a dark-colored vehicle near the median of the highway, according to authorities and 6abc. Investigators say Rodgers didn’t stop and continued traveling west. Ewing's body wasn't found until the next morning, the news outlet says. No obituary has been written for her as of Dec. 2.

Funeral services for Ewing have been scheduled for Dec. 11 at Faith Tab Church of the Loving God in Camden. Anyone with...
    Getty Aaron Rodgers #12 of the Green Bay Packers leaves the field following a game against the Los Angeles Rams at Lambeau Field on November 28, 2021 in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers defeated the Rams 36-28. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is once again having to set the record straight when it comes to the injured pinky toe — but at least this time he didn’t have to flash his foot on camera. Contrary to a previous report from NFL Network, Rodgers admitted that he and the Packers are still weighing the possibility of having surgery on his injured toe between now and the team’s next game against the Chicago Bears on December 12. He also reaffirmed that he is “not going to miss any time” even if he does decide to undergo a procedure that he says would “immobilize the toe.” “We’re hoping to avoid surgery obviously, but the surgery would be such a minor one (that) it wouldn’t be one that I’d have to miss time with,” Rodgers said during his weekly appearance on...
    Since lying to the media about his vaccination status, Aaron Rodgers has been an open book of medical information, but the quarterback is alleging Green Bay Packers coaches might still be the source of leaks to the press. Joining Pat McAfee for his weekly interview on SiriusXM Radio, Rodgers discussed spiraling reports that his injured and scrutinized toe might need surgery. “With these reports – I don’t know where they’re coming from,” Rodgers said on the Pat McAfee Show. “I don’t know who’s talking. It seems like there are certain coaches that may have friends in the media that they don’t realize are actually just trying to report things.” “There were guys for a while who had their people who they would leak stuff to,” Rodgers added of Packers personnel. Since testing positive for Covid in early November, Rodgers himself has publicly discussed his decision to remain unvaccinated, fueled rumors about having Covid toe and told reporters he may require surgery. Is it possible Rodgers is the leak? Last week, Rodgers caused a frenzy by...
    TALLAHASSEE (CBSMiami/NSF) – A federal judge, pointing to a new state law, is reconsidering Florida’s request for an injunction against the Biden administration’s health care shots mandate. But lawyers in Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody’s office and the Biden administration indicated they would rather fight it out at a federal appeals court. READ MORE: Holiday Celebrations In Broward This Week, Here's The Forecast For Spreading Holiday CheerThe legal wrangling came as the vaccination requirement for health-care workers is poised to take effect Dec. 6 – and after U.S. District Judge M. Casey Rodgers on Nov. 20 denied a motion by the state for a preliminary injunction or temporary restraining order against the requirement. The state last week took the case to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and requested that Rodgers issue an emergency injunction against the vaccination requirement while the Atlanta-based appellate court considers the issues. Rodgers on Saturday refused to issue the emergency injunction but said she would reconsider the state’s original request for a preliminary injunction. The reason: Florida lawmakers on Nov. 17 passed a bill...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers won’t be having surgery on his injured toe right now, but it looks like there’s a chance that could change moving forward.  Will Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers need surgery to fix his injured toe? Possibly. Are Rodgers and the Packers hopeful that he can put off that surgery for as long as possible? Probably. In a tweet, Ian Rapoport shared that the Packers are hoping Rodgers will be able to rest and recover as Green Bay goes through its bye week. It seems like the goal is to try and avoid surgery for the moment, if at all possible. We’ll see if that’s possible. According to Rapoport’s tweet, Rodgers is opting out of having surgery done now, but that doesn’t mean he won’t need surgery in the somewhat near future. #Packers QB Aaron Rodgers does not plan to have surgery on his toe at this time, per me and @TomPelissero. At this time is key. The hope is during the bye it will heal and improve. — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) November 29,...
    When Joe Buck calls a Green Bay Packers game, it’s hard to overlook the love he has for legendary quarterback Aaron Rodgers. But Sunday afternoon, instead of throwing praise at Rodgers, the Fox play-by-play voice tossed some epic shade. Early in the first quarter during Green Bay’s matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, Fox sideline reporter Erin Andrews discussed Rodgers’ highly scrutinized toe injury, stating the quarterback took a “painkilling injection.” Buck followed Andrews’ report with a ruthless jab of the quarterback. “So Aaron is telling us that he’s had that toe immunized against the pain,” Buck said. While Rodgers is taking injections for his injured pinky toe, the quarterback has refused vaccine injections to combat Covid-19. Earlier this month, fans and media were shocked to learn Rodgers was unvaccinated, despite the quarterback infamously telling reporters in August he was “immunized” against Covid. Rodgers was only revealed to be unvaccinated after he tested positive for Covid three weeks ago. After missing one game while dealing with the virus, Rodgers returned to the football field with a mysterious toe injury. During...
    Sunday, November 28, 2021. 7:55 p.m. Aaron Rodgers used two touchdown passes to reduce the toe pain in the Green Bay Packers’ 36-28 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. The Rams beat the Packers 11-0 in the fourth quarter, but their comeback was not enough. Rodgers completed 28 of his 45 passes for an over 307 yards over Green Bay, who lost 34-31 to the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday. The ruling NFL MVP awarded seven and five-yard touchdown passes to Randall Cobb and AJ Dillon. Green Bay (9-3) have not appeared in two games in a row since Matt Loughlor took over the helm at the start of the 2019 season. Rodgers had not been in training for a week and said he had a broken little toe. The same injury limited him to a training session before facing the Vikings last week. The Rams (7-4) suffered their third consecutive defeat for their part. They multiplied errors and led the Packers to several chances, 16 points in turnover made by their competitors. An encouraging success...
    Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald is under fire for a replay that appears to show him choking a Packers lineman. The Packers defeated the Rams on Sunday afternoon in a test of two of the best teams in the NFC. Green Bay has separated itself from the competition in that regard, beating the Rams this past week, and the Cardinals WITH Kyler Murray. However, in the midst of their victory, Green Bay nearly suffered a catastrophic loss along the offensive line. Lucas Patrick, and offensive lineman for the Packers, got into a bit of verbal warfare with Donald throughout the game. Eventually, the Defensive Player of the Year candidate had enough, and took matters into his own hands. ☹ pic.twitter.com/Uc0DxI9vbV — alex (@highlghtheaven) November 29, 2021 The NFL might give Donald a phone call at the very least should this replay hold up in their eyes.

    GREEN BAY, WI (CBSLA) – The Rams have lost three straight games and remain in second place in the NFC West standings following their loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon, 36-28.

The Packers would capitalize via the turnover on downs on the Rams next drive, as placekicker Mason Crosby nailed a 45 yard field goal. However, the Rams would answer promptly, earning their first points on the day with a 79-yard touchdown pass to Van Jefferson, who’s attempted Lambeau Leap...

    The Green Bay Packers cruised past the Los Angeles Rams today in the latest demonstration that they are the top team in the NFC. They may not be the No. 1 seed in the NFC but there isn’t a team in the conference that is better than the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers and company took care of business in the game of the weekend, cruising to a 36-28 victory over the Los Angeles Rams to dispatch another threat with ease. The Rams managed to slow down the Packers’ prolific rushing attack despite the return of Aaron Jones from injury but Rodgers was more than up to the challenge against Los Angeles’ strong secondary. Rodgers completed 28-of-45 passes for 307 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions, an excellent performance since he has been battling a broken toe for the past several weeks. Green Bay’s defense also stepped up in a big way by forcing three key turnovers, with the backbreaker being a pick-six from Rasul Douglas that pushed the Packers’ lead to 36-17. The final score wasn’t truly...
    Joe Buck took the opportunity to troll Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for his toe situation and his COVID-19 vaccine situation simultaneously. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been the center of controversy, the topic of headlines, and the target of jokes in recent weeks. His controversial COVID-19 vaccine saga and the odd toe injury he’s attempting to work through have managed to grab everyone’s attention this season. So, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that both of those elements would be brought up at some point or another in Green Bay’s game against the Los Angeles Chargers. Prior to the start of the contest with the Chargers, Rodgers apparently received some sort of “painkilling injection” that is preventing him from feeling pain (or anything) in that troublesome toe. This information was relayed to viewers during the game between the Chargers and Packers. And of course, Buck was ready with some snark to address the situation at hand. “So Aaron is telling us that he’s had that toe immunized against the pain,” Buck remarked. Credit to Joe Buck for having...

The toe injury caused Rodgers to practice one day last week, though the reigning MVP still threw for 385 yards and four touchdowns in a 34-31 loss at Minnesota. During the week leading up to the Vikings game, Rodgers only practiced on Friday. Rodgers didn’t practice this Friday, though he has no designation on the injury report that the Packers released later in the day. “He didn’t participate in practice, but he was out there and relaying the calls to Jordan (Love, the backup quarterback), just getting that practice of saying the play calls,” LaFleur said. The Packers (8-3) announced Friday that assistant offensive line coach Luke Butkus won’t attend...
    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is calling for a “full apology” from the Wall Street Journal for its portrayal of his foot injury as “COVID toe.” On Tuesday, the paper reported on a quip Rodgers made about his toe injury. In an interview with Pat McAfee, Rodgers joked that he was doing well “other than the COVID toe.” The Journal jumped on the phrase and told readers that “COVID toe” is an actual ailment for those infected with the coronavirus who can suffer from swollen or discolored toes. Rodgers, though, was unhappy with the Journal’s characterization of his injury, according to The Wrap. “That’s actually called disinformation when you perpetuate false information about an individual. I have a fractured toe, so I expect a full apology,” Rodger said on Wednesday during a press conference. Rodgers added that he had never heard of any actual ailment called “COVID toe” and noted that he had no such symptoms described by the Journal. While the Wall Street Journal did not offer any apologies, the paper did update its story to include Rodgers’...
    Aaron Rodgers missing another practice has a number of Packers fans worried about the quarterback’s overall health and availability vs. LA.  Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers missed a Thursday practice for the second straight week as he continues to deal with a toe injury. Rodgers did not practice Wednesday either; however, he did spend time with the media after practice to show the world his fractured pinkie toe (or as Rodgers called it, “COVID Toe”). Many fans are starting to worry about Rodgers’ availability in the Packers’ upcoming game against the Los Angeles Rams. Rodgers was active in Week 11, an eventual loss to their rivals from Minnesota, despite missing both Wednesday and Thursday’s practice last week as well. The Rams are a much better opponent than the Vikings, though. The Packers are already missing several key players due to injury. Jaire Alexander is already on injured reserve, joined by Za’Darius Smith and Elgton Jenkins. The Packers will also likely be without David Bakhtiari and Aaron Jones for Week 12.Aaron Rodgers toe injury: How worried should Packers fans be?Aaron Rodgers...
    Todd Olszewski/Getty Images Quarterbacks Ben Roethlisberger #7 and Mason Rudolph #2of the Pittsburgh Steelers before a game against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on November 1, 2020. The Pittsburgh Steelers are 4-1-1 in their last six games amidst something of a resurgence on the part of longtime quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. After four games this year, the Steelers were 1-3 and Roethlisberger had completed 109 of 170 passes for 1,033 yards (4 TDs, 4 INTs) and a passer rating of 78.9. “It’s not gonna get better,” said Chris Simms of Pro Football Talk, before wondering aloud whether it was “fair” to the rest of the team to continue playing Big Ben. But eight weeks later, things have gotten better. In his last five starts, Roethlisberger is 115 of 173 for 1,226 yards (9 TDs, 0 INTs), good enough to raise his passer rating to 91.7, not far from his career average of 93.9. Now some NFL observers are wondering whether Roethlisberger, 39, might get another contract and play beyond this season. The latest Steelers news straight to...

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said his toe injury is a fracture and added that he doesn’t expect the situation to cause him to miss any games. Rodgers has been playing with the toe injury the last two games after missing a 13-7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs because of a positive COVID-19 test.

    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Wednesday sought to set the record straight about his recent toe injury, dismissing claims that he had a condition known as "COVID toe" after referencing it the day before. Rodgers told reporters Wednesday that he had a fractured toe and demanded an apology from The Wall Street Journal, which published a story referring to his toe injury as a medical condition brought on by his recent COVID-19 diagnosis.

He Has COVID Toe," cited remarks Rodgers made in an appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" on Tuesday in which he joked with the host and remarked that he "didn’t have any lingering effects other than COVID toe."

    BOSTON (CBS) – For the past two nights we’ve gorged ourselves on the local and national turkeys. But there are always leftovers. At the risk of lapsing into a tryptophan coma, here is one more serving of some massive turkeys who popped up in pop culture and other realms during 2021. * The Ever Given freighter Can a 260,000 ton container ship be considered a turkey? It can if it’s the Ever Given, a Japanese-owned giant that blocked the Suez Canal, one of the world’s most important shipping lanes, for six days last March. Estimated cost to the US economy alone – more than $50 billion, a costly warning of how fragile the global supply chain can be. * The Oscars This year’s Motion Picture Academy awards show had plenty of worthy winners and interesting moments. But what it didn’t have is what Hollywood prizes most – an audience. It was the lowest-rated Oscars ever, down more than 50 percent from last year. Blame the pandemic or whatever else you want, but when you can’t even get people to watch...
