ONE NextGen III fight card, start time, how to watch
The circus around Aaron Rodgers continued to produce A+ memes as the Green Bay Packers quarterback showed his foot to the world.
If you had foot pics on the Aaron Rodgers bingo card for 2021, you’re in luck.
The Packers quarterback gave the internet a golden opportunity for meme-making when he pulled out his bare foot to show reporters the state of his toes.
It was a bid to show that he doesn’t have “COVID toe” but suffered a fractured toe during his coronavirus quarantine. The memes in response were endless and hilarious.
Aaron Rodgers COVID toe: Foot pic sets off internet memes
Rodgers went along with the joke and changed his profile picture.
Rodgers told Pat McAfee that he had “COVID toe” earlier this week, prompting people to believe he had a COVID-related ailment on his toe. It turned out he was joking about the COVID part. He hurt his pinky toe during a workout while he was quarantined.
He plans to play through the pain and it shouldn’t keep him out for any length of time.
It’s hard to guess where the Aaron Rodgers storylines could go from here. We’ve already had a prolonged offseason dispute, a vaccination controversy, a COVID absence and now the COVID toe misunderstanding ending with a foot pic.
Rodgers and his foot, injured as it is, will look to bounce back from a loss to the Vikings this weekend with a home matchup against the Rams.
