As soon as the Green Bay Packers watched quarterback Aaron Rodgers go down with an injury to his left collarbone, there was immediately concern about what the Packers would do if Rodgers was forced to miss significant time.

One of the ridiculous rumors was that the Packers would reach out to future Hall of Famer Brett Favre, but don’t get your hopes up for any kind of reunion.

According to Gabe Neitzel of ESPN Milwaukee, who reached out to Favre’s agent Bus Cook, the veteran quarterback is retired.

This should surprise no one.

The good news for Green Bay is that Rodgers isn’t supposed to miss significant time. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Rodgers will miss around three weeks after a small fracture in his collarbone was detected, so he will return for the final stretch of the season.

If the Packers want to add a quarterback to run the show while Rodgers is on the sidelines, former back up Matt Flynn, Vince Young, who was in camp with the team, and Tim Tebow, who has long been rumored as a potential Packers back up, are the most likely options.
