Aaron Rodgers faced the wrath of the COVID Cult by revealing he hadn’t received one of the experimental COVID-19 injections.
After testing positive for COVID-19, Rodgers sat out 10 days due to the NFL’s ridiculous COVID protocols that discriminate against unvaccinated players.
Rodgers appeared on “The Pat McAfee Show” and shared his side of the story.
The Super Bowl champion quarterback told viewers he followed Joe Rogan’s treatment protocol and felt great 48 hours after his diagnosis.
Rodgers added that the left is "really gonna hate the fact that I'm 48 hours in [testing positive], and I consulted with a now-good friend of mine Joe Rogan"https://t.co/To9iWnoiGX

If not for the NFL’s discriminatory policies, Rodgers likely could have started in last weekend’s contest against Kansas City.
The Packers fell 13-7 to the Chiefs.
But Rodgers is slated to return for action this week:

From NBC Sports:
Rodgers missed last Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs after testing positive for COVID-19, but he has cleared the protocols to return to action and the Packers formally restored him to the roster on Saturday afternoon. The Packers also added him to the injury report with a toe injury, but he does not have an injury designation so he is on track to start against the Seahawks,
While Rodgers gets to suit up again after his “controversial” treatment, another high-profile NFL quarterback is out today due to a positive COVID-19 test.
The Steeler quarterback says he’s vaccinated, so Big Ben’s positive test likely won’t create the mainstream media frenzy like Rodgers.
It appears Roethlisberger’s diagnosis is another one of those “rare” breakthrough cases.
Btw, Big Ben Roethlisberger is fully vax’d. He’ll miss at least as many games as Aaron Rodgers (one), but probably won’t create a 2-week news cycle.https://t.co/lpJORPi5XO

Ben Roethlisberger has covid, he's vaccinated, still isn't playing… nothings changed, so why is Aaron Roger's being demonized again?

When will the @NFL end their pointless protocols?

Steelers Now provided this update:
Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said he has been vaccinated against COVID-19 in an interview with The Dan Patrick Show on Nov. 5.
Roethlisberger was placed on the team’s COVID-19 Reserve List on Saturday, which means he will miss Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions.
His vaccination status will play a significant factor in how quickly he can return to the team. Unvaccinated players must miss 10 days, which would keep Roethlisberger out for two games. If he has been vaccinated, he must post two negative tests 24 hours apart. If he becomes symptomatic, he must be symptom-free for 48 hours before his first negative test can be registered.

As noted, vaccinated NFL players can return to action when they post two negative tests 24 hours apart with zero symptoms.
Unvaccinated players must sit out for 10 days.
If Big Ben only misses today’s contest, that confirms he’s on the NFL’s vaccinated list.
And his diagnosis is another one of those “rare” breakthrough cases.
