Aaron Rodgers’s ‘COVID toe’ comment causes more confusion

Aaron Rodgers was not fully healthy upon his return from COVID-19. The Packers quarterback is dealing with a toe issue and provided some insight during this week’s appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. However, other comments he made caused more confusion regarding the situation.

Last week, Rodgers denied an explanation of how he suffered a toe injury, especially given the fact that it seemed to occur while he was away from football. 

On Tuesday, during his weekly show appearance, McAfee asked about Rodgers’s recovery from the COVID-19. Rodgers said, “I felt good in just a few days without any lingering effects other than the COVID toe,” with a clear smirk.

“COVID toe” is a layman’s term for a condition known as pernio or chilblains, which some individuals who catch the virus develop. It involves swelling and discoloration of the toes and in some instances, “blisters, itch, or pain,” per the American Academy of Dermatology Association.
