Aaron Rodgers is expected to be activated from the COVID-19 list and will start for the Green Bay Packers against the Seattle Seahawks, according to NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19 on Nov. 3 and had to miss at least 10 days because he is unvaccinated against the virus. Rodgers must have a negative test to return to the team.

The 37-year-old said during an appearance on the Pat McAfee Show he sought alternative treatments instead of the NFL-endorsed COVID-19 vaccinations because of an allergy he has to ingredients in two of the FDA-approved shots.

The NFL fined Rodgers $14,650 for breaking the league's COVID-19 rules.

Jordan Love made the start for Green Bay against the Kansas City Chiefs with Rodgers throwing for 190 yards, a touchdown and an interception in a 13-7 loss.

Seattle will get starting quarterback Russell Wilson back after he missed three games following surgery on the middle finger of his throwing hand. Wilson was hurt in Seattle’s Week 5 loss to the Los Angeles Rams when his hand hit the arm of Rams defensive lineman Aaron Donald.
