Video: Joe Buck trolls Aaron Rodgers over ‘immunized’ comment
Aaron Rodgers is still taking a lot of heat for his handling of Covid-19 and some of the comments he made about it.
Rodgers is dealing with a fractured toe, and FOX’s Erin Andrews reported during Sunday’s broadcast that he had taken a painkilling injection to help play through it. Andrews reported that Rodgers essentially felt like he was playing with nine toes, having numbed the fractured one.
Joe Buck then took over with a pretty savage comment.

“So Erin is telling us that he’s had that toe immunized against the pain,” Buck said dryly.
Buck is referencing Rodgers’ now-infamous comment about being “immunized” when asked if he had been vaccinated against Covid-19. It turned out that he was referring to a homeopathic treatment he underwent, and the quarterback later apologized for the misleading nature of his remark.
Buck has been on a roll with the snarky commentary lately. Rodgers probably won’t like it, but plenty of viewers likely did.
