Default Aaron Rodgers Has Broken Collarbone, Could Miss Several Weeks for Packers

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a broken collarbone, according to Chicago’s WBBM Newsradio 780 sideline reporter Zach Zaidman. That injury usually requires several weeks of recovery time.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Tuesday morning that Rodgers’ collarbone has a small fracture “that could sideline him about three weeks.”

I knew he was hiding something when he showed up back on the field - I'm sure his non-throwing shoulder should be healed by the time for our game - just our luck

After spending all off-season insulting Ben Roethlisberger's intelligence for getting injured on a sack while trying to extend the play, I wonder if we'll do the same to Aaron Rodgers now that he's gotten himself injured doing the exact same thing.

Tough break for Green Bay. Rodgers is really the leader of the team. Not to have him out on the field is a big loss. I would think the Pack will rely heavily on the running game with Lacey and Starks. They use that to open the pass up for Seneca Wallace. That has to be their gameplan, because I can't see Seneca Wallace coming out throwing trying to beat teams. He's just not that great of a QB without support. So if I am the opponent, I try and stack against the run and make Wallace beat me.

The Pack may be in some trouble because their defense is not strong. It's not like they have been completely dominant. The Bears moved the ball well against them. So I think the Pack have to play with a sense of urgency each and every play. They've got a lot of work to do to hold down the fort until Rodgers returns.

no way, Aaron Rodgers is an obvious Hall of Fame player who has led a team to a SB victory. That would be wrong to question him.

I think he is out for the season. He isn't coming back next game but it isn't because he is in pain it's because if he gets hit the injury will be a lot worse. One hit away from a bad injury.

Is this your gut feeling?... or, have you actually heard speculation about this?

(I'm not trying to be argumentative; I truly want to know what's going on.)

Just a gut feeling. I've had my collarbone broken twice when I was young and just thinking about it says he has to sit or he will get injured even worse.

In my opinion if he plays then he is making a stupid decision.
