El quarterback de Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers, tested positive for COVID-19 and will miss the visit to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, according to media reports.
NFL Network was the first outlet to report the positive diagnosis. Both the Green Bay team and Rodgers’ agent did not immediately confirm it.
Aaron Rodgers, reigning NFL MVP, is the latest Packers player to test positive.
Wide receivers Davante Adams, 2020 All-Pro, and Allen Lazard missed last week’s win in Arizona over COVID-19 protocols. Lazard has just been reactivated.
Green Bay’s backup quarterback is Jordan Love, taken in the first round of the 2020 draft. He has thrown just seven passes in his short career. The third quarterback, Kurt Benkert, serves on the practice squad, but was placed on the COVID-19 casualty list on Tuesday.
