Dillon, who has 97 yards on 23 carries this season, played 10 snaps on offense and seven on special teams in Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings. As of Monday afternoon, the Vikings haven’t reported any positive tests among their players and staff. Yet.

Dillon’s positive test is the first positive test for a Packers player. Since August even though Green Bay has the highest 14-day average of cases per 100,000 people among all NFL cities, according to NFL Players Association data.

Since the Packers are playing on Thursday, NFL protocols require that Dillon miss the game. With Dillon out of the game, the Packers will likely be without two of their top three running backs if Aaron Jones doesn’t return from the injury that has forced him to miss the team’s last two games.
