Popular show host Pat McAfee has made a curious revelation regarding New York Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers, who is heading into his second season with the Jets, will hope he can actually be out on the field in 2024 after being sidelined for the entirety of the 2023 campaign with a torn Achilles.

Fans were naturally worried when a video surfaced online showing the veteran quarterback sitting down while taking a shoe and sock off his right foot. But, according to Pat McAfee, who cited a source during ‘The Pat McAfee Show,’ Rodgers was simply trying to avoid blisters and is possibly dealing with the lingering effects of “COVID toe.”

Check it out in the video below:

Aaron Rodgers Has Some History With COVID Toe

Aaron Rodgers, who claimed to be “immunized” during the pandemic, tested positive for COVID-19 in 2021. He denied he had COVID toe while speaking to reporters about a toe fracture.

“I mentioned yesterday that it’s worse than turf toe and it must be a bone issue — I can’t believe I have to come on here and talk about my medical information — but yeah, I have a fractured toe,” he said back then.

“I’ve never had a Covid toe before. I have no lesions on my feet. It’s just a classic case of disinformation.”

Said disinformation started with him, however.

“I felt good in just a few days,” he told McAfee prior to his interview with reporters. “I didn’t have any lingering effects other than Covid toe.”

In case you’re wondering what COVID toe is, it’s a term used to describe the swelling, pain, and discoloration in the foot of a COVID-19 patient.

REPORT: Kansas City Chiefs Reveal Kicker Harrison Butker Could Be Demoted Next Season

The Kansas City Chiefs have revealed they’re considering benching Harrison Butker for kickoffs next season.

Butker has been performing kickoffs for the Chiefs since his rookie season in 2017 but could see the role handed to someone else in 2024.

Chiefs special teams coordinator Dave Toub spoke to reporters on Thursday and disclosed the team is mulling over keeping Butker benched for kickoffs.

While the kicker has been catching criticism from all over due to the controversial comments he made earlier in May, his potential benching has nothing to do with it. They’re considering it so he doesn’t take hits all season.

“I like to have somebody who is able to make a tackle, Butker is able to make a tackle, but I really don’t want him making tackles all year long,” Toub explained.

The NFL is set to introduce a new kickoff rule in 2024, and Toub has noticed that kickers in the UFL have been taking hard hits as they’re more involved in tackling.
