The Packers have been fined $300k following the NFL’s review of their COVID-19 protocols.
Packers QB Aaron Rodgers and WR Allen Lazard we’re fined $14,650 each for attending a maskless Halloween party.
Unvaccinated players are not allowed to gather in groups of four or more in various situations outside of team facilities, and social media posts showed the quarterback with multiple teammates.
First-time offenders are fined $14,650, while repeat violations lead to stricter punishments.
Rodgers is required to isolate for at least 10 days before he is eligible to play, leaving his status for next week’s game against Seattle in doubt.
