Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID-19 after previously stating he had been immunised against the virus.
The 37-year old Super Bowl winner and reigning MVP has been considered unvaccinated by the NFL since the start of the season.
The NFL policy for players that test positive and are unvaccinated states that players must remain in quarantine for a minimum of 10 days. Rodgers can return on November 13 at the earliest, provided he remains asymptomatic.
In August prior to the season, Rodgers stated he had an alternate treatment against COVID-19 which he petitioned the NFL to allow.
The NFL said they were aware of the situation as it is developing and are working closely with the Packers to come to a solution.
“The primary responsibility for enforcement of the COVID protocols within club facilities rests with each club” said NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy in an official statement.
