Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has confirmed that he did indeed suffer a fractured collarbone in the team’s loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football, ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting:

Rodger’s went down in the first series on Monday against the rival Bears, and did not return to the game after undergoing an evaluation in the locker room. Rodgers did return to the sideline in street clothes, however, just adding to the speculation of the severity of the injury.
At this time, there has been no timetable for a return, nor how severe the fracture really is. ESPN’s Trey Wingo recently spoke on NFL Live that the fracture could be minor, which could have Rodgers back on the field this year in a best case scenario.
With Rodgers gone, Green Bay turned to Seneca Wallace, which didn’t work out all that well.
