(LifeSiteNews) — Aaron Rodgers has yet again skewered Dr. Anthony Fauci, the disgraced former director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

Rodgers, 39, is an NFL quarterback currently with the New York Jets. He had spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers, winning Super Bowl XLV in 2010, before signing with the Jets earlier this year. During the first game of the season on September 11 against the Buffalo Bills, Rodgers tore his Achilles’ tendon, putting him on injured reserve.

Rodgers was a guest Tuesday on ESPN’s Pat McAfee Show to discuss his atypically quick recovery. He has been walking and throwing a football without crutches less than two weeks after surgery.


“Look at his Achilles, right? This guy does stuff his own way. He actually defies science, this guy,” McAfee, a former NFL punter, said.

“If science is Dr. Fauci, you’re d*mn right I’m defying science,” Rodgers said to laughs.

Rodgers, who does not practice any religion, attributed his apparent healing to the “power of intention” and “the power of the mind,” as well as the “newer, innovative” surgery he had.

A small number of skeptics on social media have argued that Rodgers did not actually get injured, and that it is nothing more than a deceptive storyline for the league to get ratings.

Fauci has been on the receiving end of Rodgers’ ire on several other occasions.

Last week, Rodgers told McAfee that he would like to partner with “my man” Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to debate Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and Fauci “or some other pharmacrat” about the COVID shot. Kelce had previously partnered with Pfizer to promote their abortion-tainted jab.

Over the past several years, Rodgers has consistently spoken out against the COVID shot and the “witch hunt” carried out by the Biden regime against unvaxxed Americans. He has appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast and defended the use of ivermectin as a safe alternative as well while also calling out the “woke mob” for attacking him for his stance.

LifeSite has reported on the dangers of the COVID shot ever since the pandemic began, including its link to sudden death, myocarditis, pregnancy complications, and blood clots.
