GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could be playing football again less than two weeks after testing positive for COVID-19 while unvaccinated.

Whether the off-field consequences of this situation on the reigning MVP's public persona have a similarly short shelf life remains uncertain.

Rodgers is one of the NFL's most visible players.

His appearances on State Farm commercials make him a ubiquitous presence even on game telecasts that don't involve the Packers. His comments regarding his vaccination status could put that marketability to the test.
