Aaron Rodgers: I will have to deal with toe injury next few weeks

Aaron Rodgers entered Sunday’s game with a toe injury. It was made worse when he had his foot stepped on in the first half.

The Packers quarterback revealed after the loss to the Vikings that his injury is “a little worse than turf toe” and “very, very painful.” He elaborated on that Tuesday when he had his regular appearance on The Pat McAfee Show.

Rodgers has a bone issue in his pinkie toe.

“I believe that I mentioned that it was more painful than turf toe, and I had turf toe two years ago,” Rodgers said on the podcast. “The problem with turf toe is it’s that joint in your big toe, and it is very painful. So naturally, I’m leading people to understand that if it’s worse than turf toe, there must be some sort of bone issue. Again, it’s better the fifth toe than the first toe or even the second or the third or probably the fourth toe.

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

Rodgers, though, plans to keep playing through the injury, no matter how painful.

“One option that’s not on the table is sitting out. I’m going to push through this,” Rodgers said.

  1. Excuses….
    —–
    Didn’t realize 400 yards, 4 TD’s and 150 rating required excuses. People man….

  2. Man throws for 400 yards and 4 touchdowns and the only thing anyone can say is “excuses.”

  3. Rodgers is a proven liar to benefit himself. Who knows if his toe is really injured or not? He is probably just telling another lie

  4. R-E-L-A-X people. Aaron is just going to eat some clay that his girlfriend prepares for him. Aaron’s toe will be better quicker than you can say “Joe Rogan.”

  5. Somebody now step on his other foot now please … say all the other front runner NFC teams !!

  6. Man throws for 400 yards and 4 touchdowns and the only thing anyone can say is “excuses.”
    ___________

    Did he win?

  7. Once you get caught in a big lie like Rodgers did, it’s hard to know when to believe him. I also find it odd that he won’t say how this happened.

  8. He probably hurt it kicking the wall when he saw that they picked Pete Davidson to play him on SNL.

    Well, when the Packers fans immediately start making excuses minutes after the game, and the head coach is still making excuses on Wednesday, and a Packer coach tells a Vikings reporter that he shouldn’t be talking highly of the Vikings…….:..you get my drift.

  10. “Soak the affected area in gasoline for thirty minutes, let your neighbors cat lick it for awhile, then and wrap it in crushed M&M’s overnite. Good as new.”
    -Joe Rogan

  11. Rodgers is turning into a whiney baby. Suck it up, Rodgers and stop coming up with excuses for losing.

  12. Ivermectin is “horse dewormer” in the same way that water is a “horse hydrator”.

    And whatever treatment Rogan and Rodgers took WORKED. But you never hear that part of it, and most of you sadly refuse to accept it.

    Howdy. It’s Tuesday. No drift required. Enjoy the holiday (responsibly).

  14. Love how a lot of you people call him a liar and will never believe a word he says for now on, like any of you have never ever been caught in a lie, hypocrites

  15. Too bad really, at least we know his natural immunity is helping gain herd immunity unlike those vaxxers! Those crazed vaxxers are delaying the inevitable and ruining it for everyone else with all their boosters! It’s just science!

  16. I kicked the bench to celebrate when Cosby missed his kick, after coach decided to go with him instead of having me go for it on 4th down, but it backfired.

  17. Did he win?
    —–
    Does he play defense? Did he do anything other than toss a TD the last time he had the ball?
    Last I checked it was 11 guys on the other side of the ball that allowed a mediocre team to drive down the field and kick the walk off fg, but sure, Rodgers lost. It was a piss-poor effort by a known liar. Better?

  18. Like him or hate him, Rodgers provides plenty of entertainment value due to the fact that he always has to get his two cents in. The media should be especially thankful for that. I, however, am ready for him to stop talking and just play football.

    It worked? He got Covid, you DS. Those among us who know better refuse to accept it because it was not approved by the FDA, you know, the SCIENCE FOLKS! You are refusing to accept it, not us! You are refusing to accept scientists and virologists that have studied this phenomenon their entire careers. Wake up or shut up.

    Classic anger issues with possible Napoleon complex overtones

  21. You are refusing to accept scientists and virologists that have studied this phenomenon their entire careers. Wake up or shut up.

    This “phenomenon” started about 2 years ago – if they been studying it for their whole careers how come the entire world was so unprepared?

    Many people who are vaccinated are still getting and transmitting covid. That’s a fact.

    People speak like all of the many types of vaccines used throughout the world are interchangeable. Is that logical?

    If you blindly trust the FDA, have you ever identified an instance where a government agency had a conflict of interest?

    I’m awake… or did you mean “shut up and agree with me”. That seems more your style.

    Sure, go ahead and claim anti-vaxer position is a benefit to society.

    Ok to do so when your are just firewood

  23. A lot of anger from peeps on an NFL blog about covid.

    It’s almost like someone intended to pin us against one another and separate us…

  24. Rodgers took Ivermection (not approved for COVID) to prevent COVID. He got it anyway. Then, he was given monoclonal antibodies (science) to treat the COVID, and it worked. IT’s a very expensive treatment that most people wither don’t have access to or can’t afford.

  25. Rodgers never gets tired of taking about himself. He’s going to hane w lot bigger problems than Turf toe after Aaron Donald is done wieh him

  26. I think he can inject bleach directly into the little toe and be cured overnight..O forgor he doesn’t do vaccinations.

    Umm, because Trump slashed funding to thr e CDC and NIH, amongst other bodies, which limited boots on the ground from a medicine and science postition.

    That’s why.

    Try paying attention to what Congess does for once as opposed to running your mouth without facts.

    Trump’s leadership did this.

    That makes his decision to lie about it not only purposely uninformed and selfish, but even worse; deceptively privileged. Screw him.

  29. Its amusing listening to Patriots fans take shots at Rodgers, as if they could recognize ethical behavior or sportsmanship if it hit them right between the eyes.

  30. He’s going to hane w lot bigger problems than Turf toe after Aaron Donald is done wieh him

    Rodgers didn’t start taking Ivermectin until he had Covid.

    Anyone with insurance (including Medicaid) can afford monoclonal antibodies.

    Not really that awake. It is true vaccinated people can still contract and spread covid, but at lower numbers. Compare the numbers based on population of vaxed vs. unvaxed.

    Vermont is a good case study because they regularly release breakthrough cases (transparency). Vermont has 71% vaxed and 29% unvaxed. And yet 64% of the covid cases are unvaccinated, so 29% of the population accounts for 64% of the cases and 71% of the population only accounts for 36% of the cases. Clearly vaxed are contracting and spreading at a lower ratio than unvaxed. It’s simple math.

    Let’s bring this back to football. We have the (factitious) Burlington Vaxers vs. the Charleston Unvaxers. The Vaxers achieve 71% time of possession and the Unvaxers had the ball only 29% of the time. And yet, the final score was Unvaxers 64 vs Vaxers 36. It is not even close.

  33. Hats off to Pat McAfee for allowing the world to see what a self absorbed , lying uneducated dolt Rodgers truly is . Another ridiculous element to the Rodgers debacle is the same Packers fans that were calling him a self absorbed jerk during his off season whine fest are disagreeing with those that have now rightfully arrived at the same conclusion .
