Rodgers was asked directly about his vaccination position back in August, to which he told reporters he had been “immunized.” The comment gave off the impression that Rodgers had been vaccinated but the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that his statement “does not equal vaccinated.”

The Packers were shorthanded last week against the Arizona Cardinals after star wide receiver Davante Adams tested positive for COVID. Wideout Allen Lazard was also placed on the COVID save list after being deemed a close contact.

According to ESPN, the team was also without defensive coordinator Joe Barry on Monday because of COVID protocols. 

Rodgers said in August that he believes the decision to get vaccinated is a “personal” one and that he wouldn’t estimate those who decided not to get it.

“There’s a lot of conversation around it, around the league, and a lot of guys who have made statements and not made statements, owners who have made statements. There’s guys on the team that haven’t been vaccinated. I think it’s a personal decision. I’m not going to estimate those guys,” he said at the time.
