Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers spoke more about his toe injury Tuesday on the "Pat McAfee Show," saying the injury is "some sort of bone issue" without going into specifics or indicating how the injury happened, JR Radcliffe of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

"This is something that's not going to go away," Rodgers said before enumerating the options on the table that included surgery and rest but, "one option not on the table is sitting out. I'm going to push through this."

Rodgers added: "I believe that I mentioned it was more painful than turf toe. That joint in the big toe (with turf toe), it is very painful. So naturally I'm leading people to understand if it's worse than turf toe, there must be some sort of bone issue."

Rodgers confirmed with prodding from McAfee that the pinkie toe was the one affected, but he declined to answer more information about how the injury happened.

"I've already talked enough on this show about my medical status," Rodgers joked. "I have given you enough information at this point. I have a toe injury that's not going away, and I'm going to be dealing with it for at least the next few weeks."

Rodgers has practiced only sparingly since returning from the health and safety protocols and a positive test for COVID-19. Even still, his game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday was his best of the season by quarterback rating (148.4), when he passed for a season-best 385 yards and matched a season best with four touchdowns. He left late in the first half to receive treatment on the foot (a fact he confirmed during the McAfee interview), with Jordan Love kneeling out the final possession of the second quarter.
