When Aaron Rodgers went down on Sunday Night Football, the Green Bay Packers flashed before their eyes. The good news is that Rodgers’ injury is to his non-throwing shoulder, but you never want to see a starting quarterback go down with a significant shoulder injury.
There has been some worry about a potentially fractured collarbone and Jason Wilde of ESPN Milwaukee asked Rodgers if that was the case.
Rodgers’ response wasn’t firm one way or another, which leads you to believe that is still a possibility.
From ESPN’s Adam Schefter:
ESPNMilwaukee’s Jason Wilde, who hosts Rodgers’ radio show, asked via text if collarbone broke. Rodgers’ reply: “Getting some tests (today)”

The Packers don’t currently have a capable quarterback, so they will need to have someone seriously step up if they want to stay in the playoff picture if Rodgers misses significant time.
Funny enough, Matt Flynn was recently released and would not need to learn a new offense.
Could he be the answer?
