Pandemic limiting what NFL players can do on their off weeks

By STEVE MEGARGEE AP Sports Writer

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Aaron Rodgers and his Green Bay Packers teammates won't get a chance to celebrate their fast start by leaving town during their week off.

The Packers (4-0) and Detroit Lions (1-3) don't play this week and therefore are the first NFL teams to get a taste of how different off weeks will be amid a pandemic.

Players and coaches aren't allowed to leave the city where the team is located during the off week because they must provide daily specimens for COVID-19 testing.
