Aaron Rodgers is furious after learning that his status as unvaccinated against COVID-19 was publicly disclosed. Rodgers had been misleading about his status, all the while blatantly violating league and public health measures. The Green Bay Packers quarterback was outed by several sources earlier this week.

The news broke via Twitter and quickly spread as Rodgers prior comments about his vaccination status became a hot topic. NFL Network reporter Mike Garafolo initially reported the news along with Ian Rappaport.

#Packers QB Aaron Rodgers is unvaccinated, per me and @MikeGarafolo. That’s why he’s out for Sunday vs. the #Chiefs.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk then leaked that Rodgers was “furious” about what he believes is private health information. He will be addressing the issue the next time he speaks publicly. He will not be a happy camper.

“When Aaron Rodgers speaks again, we’ll be listening to what he has to say about how his private vaccination status became public. Because he’s not happy that it did, we’re told.”

Rodgers recently tested positive for COVID-19. He will have to sit out the Packers’ Sunday tilt with the Kansas City Chiefs. His unvaccinated status means that he’s unable to clear protocol even if he is symptom free at gametime.

Should Aaron Rodgers have to sit out until he’s vaccinated? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
