Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers reveals he suffering from a unique toe injury!

Packers quarterback and current NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers didn't take the final snap of the first half of Sunday's division game against the Minnesota Vikings, departing early. Television cameras caught Rodgers in the tunnel on the way to the locker room prior to the expiration of the game's opening 30 minutes. 

Following the game, he'd reveal that he'd been dealing with a toe injury after having it accidentally stepped on by an opponent. And how, he's revealing that he's dealing with a more serious injury than previously thought.

During his weekly appearance on The Pat McAfee Show, Rodgers revealed that he's dealing with a painful toe condition despite being in otherwise good physical shape. 

"I felt good in just a few days. I didn't have any lingering effects other than Covid toe," he said. 

When pressed for additional details, Rodgers politely declined, saying that he's going to be avoiding doing more of that in the wake of the controversy of his comments a few weeks back regarding his COVID-19 vaccination stance.

“Look Pat, I’ve already talked enough on this show about my medical status,” he said. “I’ve given you enough information at this point. I have an injury that's not going away and I’m going to be dealing with it for at least the next few weeks."

For those who may be wondering what "Covid toe" is, take a look at what the American Academy of Dermatology Association had to say about it:

The condition may develop on your toes, fingers, or both. From what we know, it seems that most people develop this only on their toes, which explains the name “COVID toes.”

"The swelling and discoloration can begin on one or several toes or fingers, according to Amy Paller, MD, FAAD, who is a board-certified pediatric dermatologist and Chair of Dermatology at Northwestern Feinberg School of Medicine. At first, you might see a bright red color that gradually turns to purple. COVID toes can also begin with a purplish color."
