Aaron RodgersHe doesn’t take any time to clear up the latest gossip.

Although we didn’t expect it, the Green Bay Packers quarterback held his naked feet up at a press conference. Rodgers, 37, was attempting to dispel rumors that he was experiencing “COVID toe” after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month. 

Although the Centers for Disease Control does not list toe-related injuries as common symptoms of COVID-19, some dermatologists have suggested that some COVID-19 patients may have “discoloration and swelling on their feet,” according to the American Academy of Dermatology Association. The “COVID” toes may also lead to pain, itching or blisters. The website states that some people experience painful bumps, raised bumps, or rough patches.

Rodgers made his debut on The Pat McAfee Show on Nov. 23, sharing that he “didn’t have any lingering effects, other than COVID toe.” 

Many thought that Rodgers was either serious or joking about his claim. According to ESPN, Rodgers responded to the internet chatter at a conference held on Wednesday 24 November.
