AceShowbiz - Aaron Rodgers has given his fans and followers an update on his toe injury. In a new interview, the Green Bay Packers quarterback revealed that his fractured toe is improving after "bye weeks."
On Tuesday, December 7, the 38-year-old athlete told "The Pat McAfee Show" that he took a trip to Los Angeles last week to get another look at his injured toe. He said, "I did get some great information about my foot. There was nothing really revolutionary."
"There was no mindset change or anything. The biggest key is rest," Aaron added. "I wish that there was another one of these bye weeks, so I could get 14 to 21 great days without doing anything. But the toe is improving and we'll see how it feels later in the week."
Aaron determined to avoid surgery to fix his toe. "That's not option No. 1 or 2," Shailene Woodley's fiance said of going under the knife. "If things were to progress or get much worse, that would be something to avoid further damage," adding that if he underwent surgery, it would be to "put a pin in to prevent any further displacement of the fracture."
Prior to this, Aaron, who contracted COVID-19 in November, jokingly called his foot injury "COVID toe." On November 23, he told "The Pat McAfee Show" that he "didn't have any lingering effects, other than COVID toe."
One day later, Aaron set the record straight that the coronavirus has no side effects on his foot. The athlete, who reportedly fractured his toe after his 10-day quarantine, said during an online press conference, "I'm glad you asked just so I could show you the lesions on my foot here, so if I have enough room on this camera, let me see if I can." He then showed off his barefoot to the camera.
"Oh, oh there's no lesions whatsoever. Oh, what a surprise. No, that's actually called disinformation when you perpetuate false information about an individual," Aaron further stressed. "That was very, very interesting, but no I had never heard of COVID toe before. Pat made a joke about it on the show, and I mentioned yesterday that it's worse than a turf toe and it must be a bone issue."
