According to a report from CBS Chicago reporter Adam Hoge, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken left collarbone in the first quarter of Monday Night Football against the Chicago Bears.
Here is an excerpt from that report:
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a fractured collarbone in Monday night’s game against the Bears, sources told WBBM Newsradio 780 sideline reporter Zach Zaidman, who reported the news during the third quarter. (CBS Chicago)
Rodgers sustained the injury on the first drive of the game after taking a hard hit and drive into the turf by Bears’ defensive end Shea McClellin. He left the game immediately and headed into the locker room after being evaluated by trainers, with what was first being reported as a shoulder injury.
Rodgers was deemed out for the game, and now this awful news – if the report holds true — would certainly be a huge blow to the Packers.
Seneca Wallace took over for Rodgers and ended up going 11-of-19 for 114 yards with an interception in the Packers 27-20 loss. Green Bay moves to 5-3 on the year, as does Chicago.
There is no official word from the Green Bay Packers organization on the injury or any timetable for a return for Rodgers — head coach Mike McCarthy mentioned in the post game press conference that they do not have an official diagnosis and confirmed there is no timeline for a return.
