The National Football League is currently investigating Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers to figure out if he has been breaking protocols since he is an unvaccinated player.
Despite him telling everybody that he was immunized before the season, once he tested positive, we quickly found out how untrue that was. He will now miss Sunday’s game against the Chiefs.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport is now reporting that the Packers quarterback will not be suspended as part of the league’s ongoing investigation.
From the report:
“The NFL has begun conducting interviews with Packers personnel and is expected to obtain video and other evidence as it reviews the team’s compliance with COVID protocols, in light of the public revelation that reigning MVP Aaron Rodgers is unvaccinated. And Rodgers and the club could face fines — but not a suspension — if violations are found.
The league and team know the vaccination status of all players, including Rodgers, who will miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs after testing positive Wednesday for COVID-19. But Rodgers’ positive test brought his status into the public eye and led to the NFL launching its review Thursday.”
In response to the recent controversy, a Wisconsin-based health care organization has cut ties with Rodgers. In their statement, Prevea Health noted that it remains “deeply committed” to getting eligible people vaccinated.
Rodgers, who tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday, appeared on McAfee’s show Friday to explain why he wasn’t vaccinated. He made things worse by referencing the “woke mob” and “cancel culture” before sharing his thoughts.
