  • Aaron Rodgers asked the NFL if an alternative treatment could count as him being vaccinated against COVID-19 over the summer, sources told ESPN.

  • His request was denied, the sources said.

  • It is unclear exactly what he meant by alternative treatment.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers petitioned the NFL over the summer to have an alternate treatment count as him being vaccinated against COVID-19, sources told ESPN.

It’s not clear what alternative treatment Rodgers was supporting.

The NFL ultimately ruled that having the alternate treatment would not allow Rodgers to be considered as someone who was vaccinated against COVID-19.

Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, and will miss the team’s upcoming game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

It’s unclear if Rodgers is vaccinated, as he had dodged a question in August asking if he had gotten the jab by saying he was “immunized.”
