Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will miss Sunday’s game vs. the Kansas City Chiefs after contracting COVID-19.

Rodgers is reportedly unvaccinated, despite telling reporters that he is “immunized” back in August.

“Yeah, I’ve been immunized,” Rodgers said during a news conference with Packers media on Aug. 26. “There’s guys on the team that haven’t been vaccinated. I think it’s a personal decision, I’m not gonna judge those guys.”

The Packers and Chiefs play on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. Jordan Love will make his first career regular season start.
