Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Lied About Having COVID Toe

Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was sh*t on over his misleading COVID-19 brouhaha, has made a U-turn and now claims he was joking when he said he had COVID toe.

Aaron Rodgers is dealing with a fracture rather and had to show his barefoot to the cameras during Tuesday’s interview with SiriusXM’s Pat McAfee.

Via The Daily Mail:

Once again, Aaron Rodgers appears to have misled the public about a COVID-related health issue.

This time the Green Bay Packers quarterback claims he wasn’t being serious during Tuesday’s interview with SiriusXM’s Pat McAfee when he said he was suffering from ‘COVID toe,’ which is something that has actually plagued people who have contracted the virus, such as Rodgers.

‘No lingering effects other than the Covid toe,’ Rodgers told McAfee on Tuesday when asked about his recent bout with COVID-19. Although he did chuckle, Rodgers did not explain that he was joking at the time.

During a video press conference with reporters on Wednesday, however, the embattled NFL MVP explained that he actually has a fractured toe, and not any lesions that are associated with COVID toe, or pernio, as it is also known.

To prove his point, Rodgers showed his bare foot to the camera while blaming the media for reporting his comments on Tuesday.

‘I mentioned yesterday that it’s worse than turf toe and it must be a bone issue,’ he said, as quoted by Pro Football Talk. ‘I can’t believe I have to come on here and talk about my medical information — but yeah, I have a fractured toe.

‘I’ve never heard of COVID toe before,’ he continued. ‘I have no lesions on my feet. It’s just a classic case of disinformation. It’s surprising coming from what used to be a reputable journalistic institution. But that’s the world we live in these days.’

You know Rex Ryan is LOVING THIS.
