GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) - Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID-19 and is out for Sunday’s game against the Chiefs, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero is reporting.

Rodgers is also reportedly unvaccinated, and will miss a minimum of 10 days as a result of his positive test. The earliest he can return to the team is November 13

Rodgers was asked about his vaccination status in August, to which he answered “Yeah, I’ve been immunized.” However, by the letter of the NFL law, that does not mean he had actually received the vaccine.

Pelissero is also reporting that Rodgers told his teammates Wednesday morning, and the Packers are planning on having back-up quarterback Jordan Love under center on Sunday.

Rodgers’ positive test comes a week after the Packers had two players on the COVID-19/Reserve List, Davante Adams and Allen Lazard, and had defensive coordinator Joe Berry out of Thursday’s game as well. Lazard has since returned, and the Packers are hopeful Adams and Berry will return Thursday.
