Report: Aaron Rodgers tests positive for COVID-19, out vs. Chiefs

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss Sunday’s road game against the Kansas City Chiefs, according to multiple reports.

NFL Network reported Rodgers will sit out the game against the Chiefs because he is unvaccinated, which means he’s sidelined 10 days as a result of the positive test.

Jordan Love, 23, jumps to the head of the line to make his first career NFL start in place of Rodgers.

Green Bay is scheduled to host the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10 (Nov. 14). According to reports, Rodgers would first be able to return to the team Nov. 13.

The Packers played without wide receiver Davante Adams and fellow wide receiver Allen Lazard last Thursday due to COVID-19. Adams has yet to be cleared to return.

Rodgers overcame the absences to throw two touchdown passes in Green Bay’s 24-21 victory over the previously undefeated Arizona Cardinals. The Packers (7-1) have won seven in a row since a season-opening 38-3 shellacking by the New Orleans Saints on Sept. 12.

Rodgers, 37, has thrown for 1,894 yards with 17 touchdowns and three interceptions this season.

Rodgers’ entire 17-year career has been with the Packers. He has passed for 53,139 yards and 429 touchdowns, and he won a Super Bowl ring with the franchise at the end of the 2010 season.

Love has completed 5 of 7 passes for 68 yards in limited work this season. That has been his lone regular-season action since the Packers selected him with the 26th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft.
