The NFL will reportedly investigate the circumstances surrounding Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers having tested positive for COVID-19 and if the Packers have broken any health guidelines.

“The primary responsibility for the enforcement of COVID protocols within club facilities rests with each club,” the league said in a statement. “Failure to properly enforce the protocols has resulted in discipline being assessed against individual clubs in the past. The league is aware of the current situation in Green Bay and will be reviewing the matter with the Packers.”

Along with Rodgers, several other Packers players also fell victim to the virus. Davante Adams and Allen Lazard tested positive ahead of the Arizona Cardinals game last Sunday.

When asked by reporters in August if he was vaccinated, Rodgers responded: “Yeah, I’ve been immunized.”

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday about whether Rodgers’ comment was misleading, Green Bay coach Matt LaFleur refused to answer.

“That’s a great question for Aaron,” LaFleur said. “I’m not going to comment on it.”

Under NFL protocols, players who are unvaccinated and test positive for COVID-19 must quarantine for at least 10 days.
