After rumors floated around the internet that Aaron Rodgers’ mysterious toe injury was a symptom of his COVID diagnosis, the Packers quarterback set the record straight — by literally pulling his bare foot out for everyone to see on a press conference.
Rodgers — during his usual Tuesday appearance on McAfee’s show — seemed to imply his “very painful” toe injury is a result of his bout with COVID-19 earlier this month.
COVID toe, however, is a real condition, per the Wall Street Journal. The symptoms include discoloration (red, white, purple, brown) of the toes and lesions. It can be especially painful, and sometimes cause difficulty walking.
Instead, Rodgers’ injury was a simple broken toe. The internet can now revel in the fact that his feet pics will be out there forever.
