NFL Investigating if Aaron Rodgers Broke Protocols by Lying About Getting Vaccine

Wednesday’s biggest storyline in the NFL was the news that Packers QB Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19. Rodgers will miss this Sunday’s marquee showdown against the Chiefs, but the bigger story is an NFL investigation. Rodgers is reportedly unvaccinated and was spotted attending a Halloween party last weekend. He’s also failed to follow health and safety protocols this season while not wearing a mask inside team facilities. The Green Bay signal caller could potentially return for next Sunday (Nov. 14), but he could face further suspension following the NFL’s investigation.
