Packers QB Jordan Love placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

The Green Bay Packers have more COVID-19 issues at the QB position.

The team announced Monday that it placed backup quarterback Jordan Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list after testing positive for COVID.

Love is fully vaccinated and must now isolate, but is eligible to rejoin the team if he remains symptom free and has two negative tests at least 24 hours apart.

The backup quarterback started the Packers' Week 9 loss to Kansas City, which Aaron Rodgers missed after testing positive for COVID-19.

Rodgers' status for Sunday will not be impacted by Love's positive test, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero noted. Under NFL-NFL Players Association protocols, any individual who tests positive, as Rodgers did, is exempt from the normal testing cadence for 90 days, but must still undergo daily symptom screenings.

The Packers are coming off a bye week, so close contacts could be mitigated. Green Bay is preparing to take on rival Chicago in Week 14 on Sunday Night Football.
