Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers can return to the team on Saturday after completing a 10-day quarantine period and head coach Matt LaFleur said Rodgers will “absolutely” start if he’s available to play.

During an appearance on The Pat McAfee Show on Tuesday, Rodgers said that he’s feeling well after experiencing some symptoms of COVID-19 after his positive test last week. He said he’s excited to get back to work with the team, but acknowledged that there’s a “small possibility” that he won’t be in the lineup against the Seahawks.

Rodgers said he has to go through some testing upon his return to the team to ensure that his heart responds well to a return to “physical exertion.” He said he will be doing workouts on his own this week in advance of the Saturday return to the Packers’ facility.

The Packers will have to activate Rodgers from the COVID-19 reserve list on Saturday afternoon for him to play on Sunday, so we’ll know how all the testing went well ahead of kickoff.

  1. “Rodgers said he has to go through some testing upon his return to the team to ensure that his heart responds well to a return to “physical exertion.”” I would imagine if he would’ve “done his research” on the effects of contracting Covid (even in relatively mild cases), that he would’ve seen that there are potentially far more serious after effects, including cardiopulmonary and neurological problems than from taking a simple vaccine. After effects that an “elite” athlete like him might want to avoid, I would imagine.

  2. I’ve had my full serving of Rodgers for the year. Please send the rest back to the kitchen thank you.

  3. Rodgers needs to be SUSPENDED. NFL reintegrating mask indoor requirement means Rodgers VIOLATED that requirement. Sit him for the rest of the year. Odd had Kap has no job for taking a stance that hurt no one. While Rodgers endangered others. In a world full of Rodgers, be a Kap.

  4. Guess we will hold off on the suspension thing if the dude tests positive again n the green n gold suddenly fold n don’t make the playoffs .. other then that carry on week to weak cause the league office is proving to be so weak in punishing of one the favoured stars.

  5. When is he going to be suspended for ignoring all rules put into place for player safety? NFL I’m waiting on you to do the right thing.

  6. ” but acknowledged that there’s a “small possibility” that he won’t be in the lineup against the Seahawks.”

    ………………….
    Gamblers beware!

  7. It’s in Rodgers best interest to not play. That way, Love will stink up the field again and Rodgers can revel in the fact that the Packers wasted a first round pick on Love.

  8. I had covid-19 a month and a half ago and my symptoms didn’t get bad until 7 days after diagnosis. At that point I became more sick than I have ever been in my life. Ended up with double lung covid pneumonia and still have that today. So, if Rodgers is lucky he will have seen the worse of his case of covid-19 already. Anyway, just a little note to let people know if they catch covid-19, it.might seem okay at first, but I may hit you hard later.
