I don't get what the issue is. Teams manipulate IR all the time as the season ends. The NFL had to approve Rodgers being sent to IR the second time anyway, and obviously they did.
Im not sure that is done “all the time”
maybe not all the time, but it's not like it's an uncommon practice. teams place players on IR at the end of the year to get roster spots open, even if they're not 100% injured. kind of like in baseball when teams make up an injury to get someone on the DL. And again, the NFL has to approve whether or not a player can be placed on IR, which they did both times for Rodgers.
