GREEN BAY — Packers' running back AJ Dillon has been activated from the COVID-19 reserve list and shared a tweet saying the virus is "no joke."

Back on Nov. 2, Dillon tested positive for COVID-19 following the Packers' game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Now, more than a month later, Dillon has been removed from the COVID-19 reserve list and will likely be a part of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions.

General Manager Brian Gutekunst announced the transaction on Thursday, just after Dillon shared a post on Twitter where he said, "Happy to be back out there... remember Covid hits everyone differently! I’ll be the poster boy for it’s no joke! I appreciate all the support throughout the process."
