The reigning MVP has ended speculation that he is dealing with a “COVID toe”. Rodgers said – and show – reporters on Wednesday that he broke his toe while working from home during the quarantine.
On Tuesday, while appeared on the Pat McAfee ShowRodgers said he hasn’t had any lasting effects from his recent game with COVID-19, except for “COVID toes.” Both Rodgers and McAfee laughed at the description amid jokes about the quartet’s COVID quarantine, so it’s unclear if Rodgers was actually describing his condition. But “COVID toe” is a real medical condition, as The Wall Street Journal report, and it would theoretically be painful to get through.
Andrew Beaton wrote this week: “Covid Toe is a common name for something called pernio or chilblains, which is a condition that causes symptoms such as discoloration and lesions. “It can be extremely painful and turn the toes purple.”
Rodgers, for what it’s worth, doesn’t appear too worried about his condition for this Sunday’s game against Rams. He previously indicated that his leg injury was aggravated in Green Bay’s loss to Minnesota, not by COVID but by an opposing player.
Rodgers told reporters afterward: “I went into the first half, and that kind of triggered all the symptoms that I was having. “It’s going to be another painful week and next week, and then hopefully (I’m) going to start to feel a little better at goodbye.”
Rodgers missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday ahead of the Packers’ game against the Vikings but returned as a limited participant on Friday. Green Bay will say goodbye to Week 13, following this Sunday’s game against Los Angeles.
