GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – Well, the newest member of the Green and Gold will not play in the upcoming divisional playoff matchup with the Los Angeles Rams. According to reports from ESPN’s Field Yates, the Packers have placed offensive tackle Jared Veldheer on the Covid-19 reserve list as result of a positive COVID test.

So far, according to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, they have cleared all contact tracing and do not have to put anyone else on the list at this time.

Tests between now and Saturday could be a big factor in who will be available to play Saturday against the Rams.
