Aaron Rodgers Tests Positive For COVID, Likely Out Against Chiefs

GREEN BAY, WI (OnFocus) – Aaron Rodgers has reportedly tested positive for COVID-19 and will likely be out for the team’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The Green Bay Packers’ star quarterback will cede his place to Jordan Love for the time being as he will step in for his first regular season start of his career.

Practice squad quarterback Kurt Benkert has also reportedly tested positive so Love remains the only available QB on the Packers’ roster.

The Packers have been dealing with a slew of COVID-19 issues over the past couple weeks as the team was without its top two wide receivers in Davante Adams and Allen Lazard for their game against the Arizona Cardinals due to COVID-19 issues. Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry also missed Thursday’s game against Arizona due to COVID-19.

Rodgers told reporters earlier in the season that he is vaccinated which means he will have to test negative twice with the tests being 24 hours apart before he is able to return to any in-person team activities. He must also exhibit no symptoms of the virus before he is able to return.

However, conflicting reports have now indicated that Rodgers may not be fully vaccinated and that is why he will be missing the game.

The team currently sits in the top spot in the NFC with a record of 7-1 and will be facing a Chiefs team that went to the Super Bowl last season but has not looked like the same team as they boast a 4-4 record.
