GREEN BAY, Wisc. — Utah State's Jordan Love will get his first NFL start Sunday after Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers tested positive for COVID-19.

NFL Network reports Rodgers will be unable to face the Chiefs in Kansas City, giving Love the opportunity to lead the 7-1 Packers.

Love was selected with the 26th overall pick by Green Bay in the 2020 NFL Draft, but has yet to start a game due to playing behind Rodgers. Following a rookie season in which he failed to play a down, Love saw limited duty during Green Bay's opening week blowout loss to the Saints.

In three seasons with the Aggies, Love threw 60 touchdowns before declaring for the NFL Draft.
