One of the biggest NFL news stories to emerge on Wednesday was the confirmation from Aaron Rodgers that he has been playing through a broken thumb for over half the season.
Though Rodgers has been listed on the injury report over his thumb, the news about him having a broken thumb was not public until Wednesday. The reason why the news leaked out on Wednesday is a story in itself.
A Packers fan who goes by “Big B” on Twitter said that he asked Rodgers about the injured thumb during his “Make-A-Wish.” Rodgers told the fan that his thumb was broken.
Since this is a big talking point today let's break some news. I asked Rodgers during my Make-A-Wish how his finger is and he replied that his thumb is actually broken. His thumb was still really bruised and swollen last Saturday.

“Since this is a big talking point today let’s break some news. I asked Rodgers during my Make-A-Wish how his finger is and he replied that his thumb is actually broken. His thumb was still really bruised and swollen last Saturday,” Big B wrote on Twitter.
Rodgers talked about his thumb injury on Tuesday with Pat McAfee, which led to more questions on Wednesday where Rodgers confirmed the news.
Pat McAfee: "Is your thumb a problem?"
Aaron Rodgers: "My thumb is what it is. It has been an issue since the #Giants but I'm not going to need an excuse."

If not for the Make-A-Wish leak, the news probably would not have become public.
The two-time defending MVP is having a down season with 2,542 yards, 19 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. Green Bay is 4-7 this season.
