Aaron Rodgers Gives Disappointing Toe Injury Update
Aaron Rodgers provided an update on his toe injury.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback revealed on Wednesday that he has a fractured toe and that surgery is an option.
Rodgers propped his foot up to show reporters on the virtual call his injury during his press conference.
“I mentioned yesterday that it’s worse than turf toe and that it has to be a bone problem,” he says.
I can’t believe I have to go on the air yet again to discuss my medical situation.
However, I do have a fractured toe,” Rodgers said, according to NFLcom.
“This is the first time I’ve heard of COVID toe.
My feet are free of lesions.
It’s just a case of misinformation, plain and simple.
It’s surprising coming from a once-respected news organization.
That is the world in which we now live.”

As he tested positive for COVID-19, Rodgers revealed that he first injured his toe while working out during his quarantine.
Rodgers will be evaluated on a day-to-day basis as the Packers prepare to face the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday, according to Packers head coach Matt LaFleur.
With the Packers on bye next week, Rodgers will be able to rest up before hosting the Chicago Bears in Week 14.
Rodgers continued, “I didn’t think it was what it was until I got to the facility on Saturday before the game and got X-rayed when I got cleared.”
“It’s all about pain control.”
There are also surgical options that don’t require any downtime.
During the bye week, I’ll definitely look into all options.” Rodgers played through the pain in Sunday’s game against the Minnesota Vikings. The Packers lost, but Rodgers had one of his best games of the season, throwing for 385 yards and four touchdowns, good for a 148.4 quarterback rating.
When asked about the loss, Rodgers said, “At times the last couple years, we’ve been so good in the first 15 to 20 plays that we script, and scoring on opening drives, touchdowns.”
“This year, that hasn’t been the case.”
We’ve been a lot slower to get going, so that’s something we’ll have to look into.”
