The Green Bay Packers lost quarterback Aaron Rodgers on Monday Night Football to a shoulder injury. Initial tests showed a small fracture in Rodgers’ collarbone, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

That leaves the Packers in a bit of a scramble to resolve their quarterback situation, behind Seneca Wallace they don’t have anyone available to play quarterback. They could promote someone from the practice squad or sign a quarterback.

Quarterback Matt Flynn is available, and familiar with Packers organization, he spent four seasons there. Since leaving the organization he has bounced around playing for three different teams.

In his final game for the Packers, Flynn impressed by completing 70 percent of his passes for 480 yards, six touchdowns and one interception. Many speculated that the Packers could try to acquire Flynn, but there are reports that is unlikely. The Packers reportedly have concerns that Flynn has some arm issues, specifically his elbow.

Since leaving the Packers he has played with the Seattle Seahawks, he was expected to start but lost the job to rookie Russell Wilson. He then joined the Raiders and was named the back up in favor of Terrelle Pryor.
