Addressing mounting speculation as to the extent and the origin of the injury to Aaron Rodgers’ toe, the QB seemed to vent some frustration on the matter and provided some visual evidence. Following a mostly drama-free week for the team, Rodgers could not help but to spice things up a bit.
It all started with Rodgers jokingly saying he had “COVID toe” during a recent appearance on the Pat McAfee Show. As it turns out, this is an actual condition — although it does not seem like Rodgers was aware of this when he said it, but that’s understandable.

Rodgers, sounding like your uncle at Thanksgiving that may need to put the wine glass down, had this to say:
It’s actually called disinformation when you perpetuate false information about an individual. I have a fractured toe. So I expect a full apology from Molly Knight and whoever her editors was. I did get a kick out of reading that article. That was very, very interesting. But, no, I never heard of COVID toe before. Pat made a joke about it on the show, and I mentioned yesterday that it’s, you know, worse than a turf toe, and it must be a bone issue. I can’t believe I have to again come on the air and talk about my medical information. But, yeah, I have a fractured toe. I’ve never heard of COVID toe before. I have no lesions on my feet. That’s just a classic case of disinformation. It’s surprising coming from what used to be a reputable journalistic institution, but that’s the world we live in these days.
Aaron Rodgers was clearly waiting for the COVID-toe question because you can hear him say, “I don’t know if I have room to get my toe up there,” at the start of his press conference.

Rodgers mentioned Molly Knight specifically. Unfortunately, she was not the source of the….ahem…”disinformation” and is not employed by the Wall Street Journal. She responded with the following statement:

Just reporting the news here, folks. Rodgers is still a damn fine quarterback and obviously one of the more intelligent players to play the game in the modern era. I think maybe that last part is one of the main reasons his recent behavior seems so strange. It should also be noted that late-career Charlie Sheen was hardly anywhere near his peak, whereas Rodgers is arguably still quite close.
I’d expect this low level reporting from Tommi.
But then again….JP……Tommi…what’s the difference.
Did you know that tiger blood cures COVID?
Like i said…what’s the difference.
Comrade Jason! You must never question or criticize comrade tinker bell! Lest you face certain arrest by the Wisconsin KGB! Torture, and 10 years hard labor in the gulag! All praise be to Lennon, Stalin, and little Erin!
“I’m just here so I won’t get fined”——— Careful JP; if that moniker gets in the wrong atmosphere, you might get fined,,,,,,,LOL
On a lighter note, wishing all a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!
Happy Thanksgiving to all….
Yes, even you Princess.
I view your personality disorders as an illness, not a choice.
Mental chemical imbalance is real and treatable. Godspeed.
Dan Campbell is to NFL clock management…..
What Tommi is to factual integrity.
Campbell is 0-10-1
While Tommi is…..a waste of oxygen.
So this clown wants an apology from the Wall Street Journal? I’m still waiting for an apology for that shitty performance in the 4th quarter of NFCC game! I wouldn’t hold my breath Erin. I’m just glad he’s got a fractured toe and not a pulled groin. Although I’m sure PF4L would just love it if Erin were to whip it out and show him. Only 6 more regular season games and a quick playoff exit left for the “Michael Jordan” of the regular season. The playoffs, when it matters, not so much.
You’re plagiarizing Andrew Brandt’s pulled groin joke there Killer.
Plus as always, you still sound like a broken record.
Wash, rinse, repeat . . .
Tommi, Killer, Lonely Boy, Ragnar, Princess, Gomer, Barney, Jason…
Take your pick
Including the part where I said PF4L would love to see Erin’s dick? I wasn’t aware of Andrew Brandt’s comments. Did he mention that Erin plans to show us his hemorrhoids at his next presser? I guess it’s a real thing. All that pegging from Shailene, Danica, and Olivia over the years. You ladies won’t want to miss that one. The only time you girls crawl out of Aaron Rodgers ass is to defend your sweetheart and talk about how he doesn’t have enough weapons. I don’t know what he’s gonna do next year. He isn’t unconditionally loved in America like he is here at this site. He’s in for a rude awakening. It happens when you get out of touch with reality. Call me whatever you like PF4L. The one thing you can’t call me is Aaron Rodgers butt boy. That honor is all yours. And you wear it with such pride.
So very angry…smh
“He’s in for a rude awakening.” – Ragnar
I agree….a rude awakening of a wedding, being a first ballot HOF’er, and retiring with a net worth of about 400 million.
What a loser.
Godspeed….i hope he can make it through that hell.
I’ll call you what the others in here call you Princess…
A P O S
Full of shit
Need more Sparky, or are you good with those truthful descriptions?
SOB!…he wins again!!
No Killer. Andrew Brandt didn’t mention hemorrhoids.
It’s funny. You were the only one to “guess” about them ?
