Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers Is Activated Off Reserve/COVID-19 List

After a 10-day absence from his Green Bay Packers, Aaron Rodgers returns on Sunday.

Rodgers is set to be activated from the Reserve/COVID-19 roster and is poised to return to the pack against the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday’s Week 10 matchup at Lambeau Field, reports NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero , according to one source.

During the week leading up to Saturday, the first day Rodgers could be activated, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur announced that if everything went according to plan, Rodgers would be in the starting line-up on Sunday. In order for Rodgers to play on Sunday, the Packers had until 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to activate him.

Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19, and because he was not vaccinated, he was immediately banned from the Packers’ Week 9 game against the Chiefs, which Green Bay lost when Jordan Love took over in the first round in his first NFL start.

Following Rodgers’ positive test, the Packers’ leadership explained their decision not to get vaccinated during a performance on… The Pat McAfee Show. The news that Rodgers tested positive also brought a competition assessment into the implementation of Packers’ COVID-19 protocols. That review resulted in the franchise being fined $300,000 and Rodgers fined $14,650 for attending a Halloween party. As an unvaccinated player, Rodgers is prohibited from gathering outside the team facility.

Green Bay had won seven in a row before the Rodgers-less Packers were defeated by the Chiefs.

Now the NFC North leading Pack will try to get back on track with Rodgers at the helm. In eight games, Rodgers has thrown 1,894 yards, 17 touchdowns, three interceptions and a 105.7 QB rating.
