Aaron Rodgers talks about injury on radio show, thought about playing through pain

The Green Bay Packers offense took a hit when quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down on Monday Night Football against the Bears. He was sacked by Chicago Bears defensive end Seth McClellin and landed on his left shoulder. Rodgers disclosed on ESPN Milwaukee that the injury was diagnosed as a fractured collarbone.

“I have a fractured collarbone, and we haven’t talked at all about timetable,” Rodgers said. “We have not talked about any long-term prognosis.”

Most have estimated that Rodgers will be out for three weeks. Rodgers admits that it is a difficult injury to rehab from, but is optimistic he will be back sooner than predicted.

“It’s a difficult injury because there’s not a specific type of rehab,” Rodgers said.  “Feel like I’ve been a quick healer in the past. Hopefully this will be on the short end.

Rodgers almost played through the pain and re-entered the game.

“First thought was to play through whatever I have,” Rodgers said. “I put the pads back on to try to see what I could do. took some snaps from Greg Van Roten and threw the ball with Randall (Cobb). Was too painful.”
