Anticipation had been high to see Rodgers face off against the Kansas City Chiefs‘ quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, on Sunday (November 7). Instead, Jordan Love takes Rodgers‘ place on the field.
Rodgers previously told journalists that he had been “immunized”, though stopped short of saying he had received a vaccine. Ian Rapoport recently reported that Rodgers was in fact unvaccinated and that he had been adhering to protocols for non-vaccinated players.
#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is unvaccinated, per me and @MikeGarafolo. That’s why he’s out for Sunday vs. the #Chiefs.

If unvaccinated, NFL rules require Rodgers to stay away from his teammates for a minimum of ten days. Vaccinated players may return after becoming asymptomatic and providing two negative tests 24 hours apart.
