The first part of the saga was when he tested positive for COVID-19 and had to sit out for 10 days when it was revealed he was unvaccinated.
That caused him to miss a showdown with the Kansas City Chiefs.
He made his return, only to start missing practice because of a mysterious toe injury.
Rodgers never revealed what was wrong with the toe and it led to rumors of him dealing with complications from COVID.
The quarterback decided to squash the rumors Wednesday by revealing he in fact has a fractured toe.

Rodgers held up his foot on Zoom for all to see.
He is likely tired of the rumors and finally decided to let the world know what is going on.
A Break Is Coming
Rodgers has mentioned this week how painful it has been playing with the injury.

Knowing the injury is a fracture explains why the Packers are letting him miss practice to solely focus on the games.
Green Bay faces an extremely tough test this week against the Los Angeles Rams.
But good news comes in Week 13 as the Packers have their bye week.
The late bye actually works out in their favor as Rodgers thus gets two weeks to rest his toe and recover for the final stretch of the regular season.
The fact Rodgers threw for 385 yards and four touchdowns this past Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings with a fractured toe is quite the feat.
He can clearly tolerate the pain during games, but such an injury does limit his mobility.
The bye week can allow him to get right and help the Packers chase the top overall spot in the NFC.
