Aaron Rodgers, QB (GB)

Begins week as limited

Rodgers (thumb) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports.

As has been the norm for much of the campaign, the Packers are holding back Rodgers in the first practice of the week and potentially will do the same Thursday as he continues to tend to what he confirmed Wednesday has been a broken right thumb, per Schneidman. Even though Rodgers picked up the injury in the Packers' Week 5 loss to the Giants in London, he's proceeded to suit up in each of the last six games, and his availability rarely has been in question. Heading into this Sunday's game in Philadelphia, a number of key skill-position players are banged up, as running back Aaron Jones (shin/glute) and wide receivers Allen Lazard (shoulder) and Randall Cobb (illness) were limited participants Wednesday, while rookie wideout Romeo Doubs has yet to practice since suffering a high-ankle sprain back in Week 9.
