SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Green Bay Packers announced that former Utah State quarterback and NFL rookie Jordan Love was placed on the team’s Reserve/COVID-19 list.

Love was added to the list on Friday, November 6.

“The Green Bay Packers have placed LB Krys Barnes and QB Jordan Love on the reserve/COVID-19 list. The transaction was announced Friday by General Manager Brian Gutekunst,” the team said is a statement. “Per agreed-upon NFL-NFLPA policy, clubs are not permitted to comment on a player’s medical status other than referring to roster status. Being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list is for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been in close contact with an infected person or persons.”

Love has yet to step onto the gridiron for the NFC North leading Packers. He’s been inactive entering each of Green Bay’s eight contests this season. Starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers has led the Packers to a 6-2 start this season.

In early September, Green Bay listed the rookie quarterback as the No. 3 quarterback on the team’s depth chart.

Green Bay selected Love with the 26th overall pick during the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

Prior to his time in the NFL, Love was a member of Utah State’s program from 2016-19.

The Packers’ next game is against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday, November 15 at 11 a.m. (MDT). The game will broadcast on FOX.
