Another week, another bizarre Aaron Rodgers storyline.

On Wednesday, the Green Bay Packers superstar quarterback addressed his "COVID toe" situation. Rodgers, who's been dealing with a toe injury, shot down the idea that his toe injury is related to his COVID-19 diagnosis.

Rodgers admitted that he's playing through a toe injury, but it's just a simple fracture, not anything COVID-related.

"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 told reporters on Wednesday. "Oh, 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."

Yes, Rodgers actually showed a photo of his toe to the media. That's not all that happened, though. Rodgers also incorrectly called out the author of a Wall Street Journal story that addressed his "COVID toe."

The reporter Rodgers wrongly called out, Molly Knight, released a statement on Twitter.

It's been that kind of year for Rodgers. Since his offseason trade demand rumors, there's been a bizarre new storyline every couple of weeks. It's been that kind of year for the NFL, too.

It's a big weekend for Green Bay, too.

Kickoff between the Packers and Rams is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. E.T.
