As Aaron Rodgers’ shocking interview on The Pat McAfee Show was wrapping up, the Green Bay Packers were starting their Friday coach and player press conference. Naturally, there were going to be some questions about the former during the latter. And just as naturally, head coach Matt LaFleur didn’t want to answer any of them.
Matt LaFleur to an Aaron Rodgers immunization question at the end of his press conference: “Ask something about the Kansas City Chiefs or our football team. I’m not gonna answer anything else.”

“Ask something about the Kansas City Chiefs or our football team,” said LaFleur up top. “I’m not gonna answer anything else.”
#Packers HC Matt LaFleur had no interest in talking about the Aaron Rodgers interview:
On Rodgers taking Ivermectin: “I don’t even know what that word or term is.”
Will he listen to the Rodgers' interview: "Most likely, no." (wait for the eyeroll)pic.twitter.com/QwMO5RtVmH

That didn’t stop reporters from trying to at least get some kind of reaction from the coach. One reporter started to ask a question about ivermectin, which Rodgers implied he has taken, to which LaFleur cut him off saying, “I don’t even know what that term or word is.” When the reporter pressed how the team felt about players using alternative medicines, LaFleur said, “I have no thought on that right now. I told you guys earlier, my thought lies with our team and finding a way to beat the Kansas City Chiefs.”
Matt LaFleur asked if he’s going to listen to Aaron Rodgers’ interview on the @PatMcAfeeShow: “Most likely no.”

Another reporter asked if LaFleur if he was going to watch the Rodgers interview at some point, to which he replied, “Most likely, no.”
LaFleur will do his best to keep the Pakcers on track this week and for most of next week while they await the return of Rodgers from the 10-day quarantine he’s in due to NFL protocols for unvaccinated players.
Jordan Love said he is vaccinated.
Is wearing a mask because he's still in the protocol as a close contact with Aaron Rodgers and Kurt Benkert. #Packers

For what it’s worth, the guy playing quarterback for the Packers this weekend, Jordan Love, showed up wearing a mask. Love said it was because he’s still in protocol due to his close proximity to Aaron Rodgers and Kurt Benkert. He also noted that he has been vaccinated.
