QB Rodgers says he has fractured toe

Aaron Rodgers has a fractured pinkie toe -- not "COVID toe" -- and the Green Bay Packers quarterback even put his bare foot in front of the camera on Wednesday in an effort to clear up the issue that has bothered him since he returned from his 10-day quarantine earlier this month, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.

After joking on Tuesday during his weekly appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show" about "COVID toe" -- a possible symptom of the virus he tested positive for on Nov. 3 -- and following a story in the Wall Street Journal that took those comments as fact, Rodgers revealed Wednesday that he has a fractured toe, one he suffered during workouts at home while preparing to return to the Packers for their Nov. 14 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

"I'm glad you asked just so I could show you the lesions of my foot here, so if I have enough room on this camera, let me see if I can," Rodgers said as he lifted his left foot in front of the camera during his Zoom news conference. "Oh, oh there's no lesions whatsoever. Oh, what a surprise. No, that's actually called disinformation when you perpetuate false information about an individual. I have a fractured toe."

Rodgers said he expected an apology from the newspaper but added that he did "get a kick out of reading that article. That was very, very interesting, but no I had never heard of COVID toe before. Pat made a joke about it on the show, and I mentioned yesterday that it's worse than a turf toe and it must be a bone issue."
