ICYMI: Green Bay Packers quarterback uses the funniest way to give an injury update at a press conference

During Wednesday’s pre-match press conference, the Packers quarterback pulled off the funniest trick in the history of press conferences. As proof for not having ‘COVID toe’ and reveal his true injury, he put his foot up in front of the camera to show that he has a broken pinky toe.

“I’m glad you asked just so I could show you the lesions of my foot here, so if I have enough room on this camera, let me see if I can,” Rodgers said as he lifted his left foot. “Oh, there’s no lesions whatsoever. Oh, what a surprise. No, that’s actually called disinformation when you perpetuate false information about an individual. I have a fractured toe.” HILARIOUS!
