Aaron Rodgers doesn’t think he got COVID-19 at Halloween party

He just doesn’t want to acknowledge he might have been wrong

Aaron Rodgers is not interested in discussing his decision to attend a team Halloween party days before he tested positive for COVID-19.

Rodgers tested positive for the virus on Nov. 3, four days after he was at a party with a bunch of his teammates. His (admittedly very cool) John Wick costume did not include a face covering.

During his Wednesday press conference (which was conducted over Zoom because Rodgers doesn’t want to wear a mask at the podium), Green Bay Press-Gazette beat writer Ryan Wood asked Rodgers if he regretted going to the party.

“As you’re out and you’re reflecting, I’m curious if you had any regret for going to the Halloween party unmasked, given your vaccination status, and if you thought that might be where you contracted COVID,” Wood said.

Fourth grade quarterback shows off impressive skills in viral video

An entire industry has launched around developing the skills of young quarterbacks, with individual trainers, academies, and year-round seven-on-seven leagues popping up. As a result, young quarterbacks seem more refined than they were years ago.

Obviously there’s a long time to go before Circo is getting real looks from colleges, but he continues to impress. The video shared by SportsCenter was posted to Instagram by a quarterback development company in Illinois called Next Level Athletix two days ago.

A local coach indicates that it is actually older footage of Circo and shared highlights from

Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield took a big shot that forced him to leave Sunday’s game versus the Patriots.

After the game, Mayfield was asked if he thinks he’ll be a go for next week’s matchup against the Detroit Lions.

The 26-year-old QB didn’t mince words when asked about his status for Week 11.

“I’ve got to find a way to get as healthy as possible. Pretty beat up right now. We’ll see. Awkward landing.”

The quote comes via the excellent Mary Kay Cabot.

One thing that can’t be questioned about the Browns’ fourth year QB is his toughness. Mayfield has battled through a left shoulder separation, torn labrum, tuberosity fracture, and now a knee issue.

The injury bug couldn’t come at a worse time for Baker, who’s been durable throughout his career.

Mayfield’s missed time could give Cleveland pause when it comes
