Packers QB Aaron Rodgers Positive for COVID-19, Likely Out 2 Weeks

The Green Bay Packers will be without the star quarterback Aaron Rodgers for this Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs after Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19. There's also some believe he will need to be away from the team for next week's contest as well.

Rodgers is reportedly unvaccinated and according to Mike Garafolo of NFL network does need to be away from the team for at least 10 days. This is quite the development as Rodgers suggested back in August he was vaccinated and had this to say:

I've been immunized. There's guys on the team that haven't been vaccinated. I think it's a personal decision, I'm not gonna judge those guys.

The veteran quarterback is having a fine season in 2021, completing 67.1% of his passes and holds a 17/3 TD to INT ratio. The team has won seven games in a row and now turns the helm over to Jordan Love, the Packer's first rounder from the 2020 draft.
