Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who as been suffering from a broken pinky toe following his return from COVID-19 quarantine. has revealed the reason he has been avoiding surgery.

Speaking during his regular weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, the reigning MVP insisted that he did not want to have surgery on his toe, but also said that it remained a possibility.

“So, you know, I’ll just keep getting treatment,” the 37-year-old said. “We were hoping to avoid surgery, obviously, but the surgery would be such a minor one that it wouldn’t be something that (would cause me) to miss time. That’s a prerequisite of any surgery that I have at this point, that I’m not going to miss any time. We’ll kind of reassess early next week and make a decision.”

Rodgers went on to explain that the surgery would prevent further damage to his toe, but would also create a new problem by immobilizing it, resulting in him playing in discomfort for the rest of the season.

“The surgery would immobilize the toe and that would be an issue I would be dealing with the entire season,” Rodgers said. “I would avoid any further displacement, but it would immobilize the toe. We’re hoping that, with a couple of weeks, we can get enough healing, and maybe we can avoid doing that. We’ll reassess, like I said, probably later this week or early next week.”
