The Seattle Seahawks won’t play again until Week 10, when they are scheduled to face off against the 7-1 Green Bay Packers in a showdown that could see future Hall of Fame quarterback Russell Wilson return to the field for the first time since breaking his finger.
Now, in an interesting twist of fate, it has become possible that future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers could also be returning to the field for the first time in Week 10 following some unpleasant test results the Packers received Wednesday morning.
Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19, as @TomPelissero reported. He’s out Sunday vs. Chiefs.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 3, 2021
Now, the fact that he’s already ruled out for the Week 9 game against the Kansas City Chiefs is certainly interesting, as it means just one thing, and you know exactly what that is.
So, Rodgers will not play against the Chiefs in Week 9, but will be eligible to return in ten days assuming he’s no longer testing positive. As for depth at the quarterback position, the Packers could need to add a quarterback to the roster this week, as their third string quarterback is already on the COVID list.

This is a situation that bears monitoring for Seattle fans, with the Hawks slated to travel to Lambeau in a week and a half.
