GREEN BAY, Wis. (WSAW) -The Packers have placed backup quarterback Jordan Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list. Love said last month he was vaccinated, meaning that he tested positive, as he would not have to be placed on the list if he was a close contact because of his vaccinated status.

Love can return to the team as soon as he returns negative tests on consecutive days. In the meantime, if Aaron Rodgers doesn’t practice this week with his fractured left pinky toe, Kurt Benkert would likely receive all of the first-team reps at quarterback this week.
