GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay Packers are reportedly bringing back quarterback Blake Bortles.

ESPN is reporting that Bortles is on his way to Green Bay right now with the expectation to sign to the Packers practice squad and be eligible for the team’s 53-man roster on Sunday as the Packers face the Chiefs.

With reports coming out that Aaron Rodgers has tested positive for COVID-19 and will be out for Sunday’s game, this ensures depth for Green Bay.

Bortles signed with Green Bay on May 24 of this year and was later released in July.

Packers Head Coach Matt LaFleur confirmed that second year quarterback Jordan Love will be the starter for Sunday’s game in Kansas City.
