The experienced defender had to be replaced by teenage midfielder Pedro Chirivella in just the 28th minute of the eventual 1-1 Europa League result in France and despite the injury not being too serious, Rodgers was pleased with how his side coped after Toure's exit.
"[It was a clash] with Simon [Mignolet]. He got a dead leg," he told reporters.
"He obviously tried to play on and had to come off.
"I felt in that period – you take your most experienced player off – the team showed great character. We had to readjust and put players in different positions, but they stood strong and coped very well with it.
"It was a dead leg that Kolo had."
