Packers' Rodgers tests positive for COVID-19, is out for Sunday's game against Chiefs

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP/CBS 58) -- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID-19 and is out for Sunday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs. 

Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed Wednesday that Rodgers was in the protocol but would not say if Rodgers had tested positive.

The reigning NFL MVP is the latest Packers player to deal with the coronavirus. Wide receivers Davante Adams, a 2020 All-Pro, and Allen Lazard missed last week’s victory at Arizona because of COVID-19 protocols.

Green Bay’s backup quarterback is 2020 first-round draft pick Jordan Love, who has thrown seven passes in his short career.
