Aaron Rodgers, already positive for Covid in early November, has a fractured toe and not … a Covid toe, a curious symptom announced in the United States and which has generated a connection with the injury of the Packers quarterback.
Tested positive for coronavirus earlier this month, Aaron Rodgers joked Tuesday during a podcast about the possible existence of a Covid toe as a symptom (lesions on the toe). Except that the next day, the star quarterback of the Green Bay Packers announced a broken toe … He therefore forced himself to reveal it at a press conference: « I’ll show you the lesions on my foot, if we can. to see them on camera. Oh, there aren’t any, what a surprise! I said there must be a bone problem, it was worse than a grass toe … is really amazing that I have to talk about my medical info, but I do have a fractured toe, and I had never heard of Covid toe before … I have no injuries, it’s just a classic case of disinformation. «
« It’s surprising, coming from a journalistic institution »
Aaron Rodgers lashed out at the Wall Street Journal, which launched this subject concerning him: « It’s surprising, coming from a journalistic institution that was once famous. But this is the world we live in now. » The triple NFL MVP (2011, 2014, 2020), symbol of the Packers with whom he was champion in 2010, will celebrate his 38 years next week. He even put his toe in a Twitter profile picture.
Aaron Rodgers, who does not want to be vaccinated because he is allergic to one of the components, hopes for an apology from our American colleagues. His toe injury is indeed so serious that he had to leave before halftime in Minnesota, on the ground of the Vikings (34-31), in order to get back on his feet for the second period with adequate treatment. He is considering the operation if it does not make him miss another meeting. After eleven games, the Packers have the second best record in the league with eight wins and three losses.
