Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has decided to clear the rumors that his injured toe was a complication caused by COVID-19.

The reigning MVP said he injured his foot during workouts at home while preparing to return to the Packers for their November 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.”

The 37-year-old expected an apology from the Wall Street Journal for their false allegation of him suffering from a “COVID toe,” saying that “That was very, very interesting, but no I had never heard of COVID toe before. (Pat McAfee) 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.”

Rodgers did not participate in Wednesday’s practice session, and Packers coach Matt LaFleur has not confirmed if Rodgers will play against the Rams this Sunday.

“Certainly we’ll handle it day by day, but a lot of it’s just going to be on how he’s feeling,” LaFleur said.
