Head coach Mike McCarthy, according to the team, recently said there are also "a number of guys that are sick" who have not tested positive.

Late last year, the NFL and the NFL Players Association agreed to modify their COVID-19 protocols to cut the standard isolation period in half from 10 to 5 days regardless of vaccination status, in accordance with the latest guidance from the CDC.

Under the new guidance, players must clear at least 24 hours since their last fever without the aid of fever-reducing medication and must have improved or no new symptoms; must be cleared by the team doctor; must satisfy any local regulations and requirements; and must wear a mask for five days after being cleared, except when participating in practice or a game.
