The announcement comes just a day after four Packers were added to the reserve/COVID-19 list.
There are now 10 Packers on the list, and two on the practice squad/COVID-19 list.
Green Bay was not the only squad impacted by the virus Tuesday. Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians and Colts quarterback Carson Wentz both tested positive, their teams announced. Wentz is unvaccinated.
The Packers are back at Lambeau Field Sunday to take on the Vikings. With the division clinched, the team will now set their sights on clinching the No. 1 seed in the NFC.
Kickoff is scheduled for 7:20 p.m.
