Packers place Jordan Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list

GREEN BAY, Wis. — The Packers placed backup quarterback Jordan Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday afternoon. 

Because Love is vaccinated, he will have to produce two negative tests two days in a row to return to practice. And depending on how Aaron Rodgers’ toe is, it could mean a lot of first-team reps for practice-squad quarterback Kurt Benkert.

Matt LaFleur said Monday that he is “hopeful” Aaron Rodgers can practice this week, but it’s uncertain. The Packers host the Bears this Sunday at 7:20 p.m.
