Aaron Rodgers trolls Rex Ryan while talking about toe injury



Aaron Rodgers appeared to enjoy trolling Rex Ryan during his weekly appearance on “The Pat McAfee Show.”

While discussing his lingering toe injury on Tuesday, the Packers quarterback seemingly referenced a prior incident, in which the former Jets coach was accused of having a foot fetish.

When asked by McAfee why he decided to expose his bare foot in a press conference last week, Rodgers replied, “I think Rex Ryan probably enjoyed it.”

Rodgers laughed along with McAfee and co-host A.J. Hawk after he cracked the joke, which Ryan, as of Tuesday afternoon, has yet to address.

The incident at the center of Rodgers’ jab took place in Dec. 2010, when Ryan’s wife Michelle reportedly posted foot-fetish videos online. At the time, Deadspin claimed the couple was believed to have participated in videos on a foot fetish website.

Ryan, who was then the coach of the Jets, called the situation a “personal matter,” and said he would not discuss it. He received support from team brass, including owner Woody Johnson and Mike Tannenbaum, the now-former general manager.

In addition to knocking Ryan, the Packers quarterback said Tuesday on McAfee’s show that he’s feeling good despite playing with a fractured pinky toe.

With Green Bay on a bye this week, Rodgers said the injury will be assessed later this week or early next week to determine a course of treatment. And though he didn’t rule out having “minor” surgery to repair the injury, the reigning NFL MVP said he’s “hoping to avoid” that option.

The injury itself, however, hasn’t slowed Rodgers down.

In Sunday’s 36-28 win over the Rams, he completed 28 of his 45 pass attempts for 307 yards and two touchdowns.

The Packers (9-3) will next host the Bears (4-7) on Sunday, Dec. 12.
