Could Aaron Rodgers' nagging toe injury be related to his recent bout with COVID-19?
It sounds crazy, but it might just be true. In his Tuesday appearance on "The Pat McAfee Show," Rodgers mentioned that he has "COVID toe."
The Wall Street Journal then published a story on Wednesday detailing "COVID toe" and how Rodgers almost certainly is dealing with it. COVID toe is a painful skin condition that stems from the body's immune response to COVID-19. Rodgers said his issue is with his bone.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback spoke with reporters on Wednesday, and clarified saying that he has a fractured toe and expects an apology from the Wall Street Journal. He then proceeded to show his bare toe to reporters on the video call.
Green Bay hosts the Los Angeles Rams this Sunday before its bye week, and Rodgers is expected to be on the field -- bad toe and all.
