Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID-19, and it’s being reported he will not be eligible to play versus Kansas City this weekend.
There was some confusion in the early reporting of the story on whether or not Rodgers was vaccinated, which would make a big deal in the possibility of playing Sunday or not. In his own words, Rodgers said he was “immunized” when asked about it before the season. That, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, is not the equivalent of vaccinated in the eyes of the league.
Kurt Benkert was added to the COVID-19/reserve list earlier this week, meaning Jordan Love will get the start as of right now against the Chiefs and is the only available quarterback on the roster.
