Packers QB A Full Participant In Practice

The Green Bay Packers have struggled so far in 2022, and with a big loss to the New York Jets in Week 6, the team has fallen back to 3-3, and with the injuries they currently have, it's going to be tough for them to dig their way out of this hole. Sammy Watkins, Randall Cobb and Christian Watson are just three of the biggest injuries suffered by this offence, but the biggest one of all is Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a thumb injury in Week 5, which was only aggravated when being sacked several times in the Week 6 loss to the Jets.

He missed practice on Wednesday for a second straight week, but today, Rodgers was back at practice as a full participant, which is desperately needed for a team that couldn't possibly win games with Jordan Love directing around such an injury riddled offensive group. Rodgers didn't play too well in Week 6, but there wasn't much he could do, as the Jets defence was just absolutely dominant, but if he can get healthy and confident in his throwing thumb, this is still the back-to-back MVP and one of the greatest to ever play the position. 

The NFC North is a lot tougher than many expected, and if the Packers are to yet again win the division crown, they'll need to turn their season around correctly, and if Rodgers can get this thumb issue under control, it could be very hard, maybe even close to impossible to catch Minnesota.
