NFL star Aaron Rodgers is currently the quarterback for the Green Bay Packers and is one of the team’s best players. However, he still doesn’t have a good relationship with the team’s organization, which has led to speculation that he might be traded to another team eventually. It seems Aaron Rodgers might be in trouble for his recent actions.
As reported earlier, Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday. Due to this, he was removed from Sunday’s game with the Kansas City Chiefs. It was said that he was unvaccinated.
It was also said that Aaron Rodgers misled everyone including the NFL regarding his vaccination status. Aaron Rodgers appeared in preseason photos standing on the sideline in street clothes without a mask.
According to NBC Sports, Rodgers has been conducting in-person press conferences in the Green Bay facility without wearing a mask. As he was unvaccinated, he has violated the protocols.
The rules come straight from the regular-season COVID protocol, to which the NFL and NFL Players Association agreed. While speaking to NBC Sports, NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy made it clear that the Packers should take action for what Rodgers did.
“The primary responsibility is on the club, which can discipline a player or personnel.”
If the Packers didn’t fine Rodgers for not wearing a mask during press conferences in the facility, Green Bay will get punished by the NFL. We will keep you updated on this ongoing case.
