Rodgers is expected to be activated off the reserve / COVID-19 roster and is set to return for the Pack against the Seattle Seahawks in Sunday’s Week 10 game at Lambeau Field, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero reports, according to a source.
Throughout the week leading up to Saturday, which is the first day Rodgers can be activated, Packers head coach Matt LaFleur has made it known that if all goes according to plan, Rodgers will be in the starting lineup on Sunday. In order for Rodgers to play on Sunday, the Packers have until 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to officially activate, which is expected to happen.
Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 and, due to his non-vaccination, was immediately excluded from the Packers’ Week 9 game against the Chiefs, which Green Bay lost to former first-round pick Jordan Love taking over on his first start in the NFL.
After Rodgers tested positive, the all-time Packers greats explained his decision not to get the shot during an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show. News of Rodgers ‘positive test has also prompted a review of the league in implementing the Packers’ COVID-19 protocols. This review resulted in a fine of $ 300,000 for the franchise and a fine of $ 14,650 for Rodgers for attending a Halloween party. As an unvaccinated player, Rodgers is not allowed to assemble outside of the team’s premises.
Green Bay had won seven straight wins before the Packers without Rodgers were defeated by the Chiefs.
Now the leading NFC North pack will be looking to get back on track with Rodgers at the helm. In eight games, Rodgers threw for 1,894 yards, 17 touchdowns, three interceptions and a 105.7 QB rating.
