Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (left) will play today against the Seattle Seahawks 11 days after he tested positive for Covid-19.

Rodgers, who is unvaccinated, was activated to play on Sunday. Meanwhile, NBA superstar Kyrie Irving, who is also unvaccinated, is forced to sit out the season.

Last week, Rodgers complained about cancel culture attempting to end his career for saying he was "immunized." He further angered the left by consulting with Joe Rogan on Covid-19 treatment.

Rodgers was not sick and spent most of his 10-day quarantine working out and staying in great shape.

The Packers were fined $300,000 and Rodgers was fined $14,000 for violating the NFL's COVID protocol.

Rodgers will face Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson who is also coming off the injured reserve list with a fractured finger on his throwing hand.

Russell's wife Ciara Wilson shared this Instagram photo of Russell flexing his muscles following surgery on his right hand just four weeks ago.

Russell had a pin inserted in his right middle finger. His swift recovery surprised his surgeon and the Seahawks.

Ironically, the news is not so good for Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, aka Big Ben.

Roethlisberger, who is fully vaccinated, will not play on Sunday after he tested positive for Covid-19.

Roethlisberger fell ill and reported his Covid-19 symptoms to the Steelers prior to testing positive.

Twitter had a field day comparing the two Covid-infected quarterbacks.

One Twitter user wrote: "Wait What But the vaccine Either it WORKS or it DOESN"T Apparently not! Seems to be happening quite frequently with those who have gotten the shots."

A second user wrote: "There's people actually upset that Rodgers didn't die of Covid."

And a third person tweeted, "A fully vaccinated Ben Roethlisberger missing today's game due to Covid completes the idiocracy loop."

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers quoted civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. to explain why he chose not to get the mRNA vaccine.

Rodgers sparked outrage when media outlets reported he is unvaccinated after he tested positive for Covid-19.

The star quarterback will miss one game before returning next week. He is not expected to be fined or suspended for being unvaccinated.

On Friday, Rodgers ranted against "cancel culture", the "woke mob," and whoever leaked his vaccination status to the news media.

The 2020 league MVP previously said he was "immunized" against the virus, leading many to believe he was vaccinated.

"I realize I'm in the crosshairs of the woke mob right now, so before the final nail gets put in my cancel culture casket, I'd like to set the record straight on some of the blatant lies that are out there about me now," Rodgers said during an appearance on pro wrestler Pat McAfee's YouTube show.

"At the time, my plan was to say that I've been immunized," Rodgers said.

"It wasn't some sort of ruse or lie, it was the truth. Had there been a follow up to my statement that I've been immunized, I would have responded with this. I would've said, 'Look, I'm not some sort of anti-vax flat-earther, I am somebody who is a critical thinker, you guys know me, I march to the beat of my own drum, I believe strongly in bodily autonomy.'"

Rodgers continued:

"I would add this to the mix, as an aside. But the great MLK said that you have a moral obligation to object to unjust rules and rules that make no sense."

 

 
Rodgers, who will earn $33.3 million this year, said he has an allergy to an ingredient in two of the COVID vaccines and he chose another treatment that raised his antibody levels.

He declined to name the specific treatment, saying, "I'm just going to keep it between my doctors and myself, but it was a way to stimulate my immune system to create a defense against COVID."

Twitter users argued that his treatment didn't work since he got Covid-19.

However, fully vaccinated White House press secretary Jen Psaki and Los Angeles mayor Eric Garcetti both tested positive for Covid-19 last week.

Colin Kaepernick, who started the NFL kneeling protests in 2016, filed a grievance against NFL owners for colluding with President Trump to keep him out of a job.

The 29-year-old former San Francisco 49ers quarterback filed a grievance under the league's collective bargaining agreement.
