Rodgers emotional on his return after COVID.

Aaron Rodgers felt emotional and exhausted after 10 days absensce due to COVID.

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers said he felt emotional and exhausted after Packers’ 17-0 win over the Seattle Seahawks.

Rodgers return from  10-day absence because of COVID-19.

It won’t go down on any list of Rodgers’ greatest games, but he still walked off Lambeau Field on Sunday sounding satisfied and grateful, if not a little tired.

“A lot of emotions for sure,” Rodgers said. “Good to be back with the guys, good to be back at home, good to be on the field, really.

“The most emotions from the whole night was probably walking off the field after the game.

“It definitely got me a little misty. It was good to feel those types of emotions and good to be back with the guys.”

When asked why he got “misty” after the game, Rodgers said: “I just don’t take these things for granted, walking off the field as a winner. It’s fun beating that squad.

“We’ve had some battles over the years. Just walking out with [teammate] Preston [Smith], who I have so much love and appreciation for, and then hearing that type of response from the crowd, it was a little extra special today.”

Rodgers received both criticism and support for his comments on vaccinations and acknowledged last week that he might have misled the public about his vaccination status when he said on Aug. 26 that he had been “immunized.”

“Everybody has an opinion and I understand that it’s a very polarizing issue for some individuals but I’m just focusing on the support that I got and it was deep and wide, and greatly appreciated,” Rodgers said.

“There’s always going to be criticism in this world. I don’t define myself by the criticism but I understand it’s a part of this because this issue is definitely polarizing. But again, I’m just so deeply grateful for all the people that reached out.”
