Aaron Rodgers’ ankle injury has reached a new height of eccentricity.
Rumors that Rodgers ‘mysterious toe injury was a symptom of his COVID diagnosis floated on the internet, setting the Packers’ quarterback record straight – literally pulling his bare foot for everyone to see in the press.
“I have a fractured toe,” Rodgers clarified, holding his foot for everyone to see – regardless of whether they wanted to.
The 37-year-old made it clear that the “COVID toe” comment she made on Tuesday’s “The Pat McAfee Show” was really funny. Every athletic. He then snatched up a Wall Street Journal article that said the injury was a medical condition brought on by his diagnosis.
Rodgers – who made his usual Tuesday appearance at the McAfee show – indicated his “very painful” toe injury as a result of his match with COVID-19 earlier this month.
“I’m thankful that in a few days I’ll be fine and have no long-term consequences [of COVID-19], Except COVID toe, ”Rodgers said.
COVID toe, however, is a real condition, per Wall Street Journal. Symptoms include the color of the toes and wounds (red, white, purple, brown). It can be especially painful and sometimes difficult to walk.
“The way I think about it is that it’s basically a side effect of how your own immune system is fighting the virus,” Esther Freeman, a physician and chief investigator at the COVID-19 Dermatology Registry, told the Journal. “It’s part of our body’s response to the virus. It’s almost too good. ”
Instead, Rodgers’ injury was a simple broken toe. The Internet can now enjoy the fact that pictures of their feet are forever.
