Packers' Rodgers has fractured collarbone
Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a fractured left collarbone, an injury he suffered during Monday's game against Chicago.
Various reports Tuesday morning hinted at the severity of the injury, which Rodgers confirmed during his weekly radio show on 540-AM in Milwaukee.
"I have a fractured collarbone, and we have not talked at all -- regardless of what's been reported -- we haven't talked at all about a timetable or anything," Rodgers told the radio station on Tuesday.
ESPN and NFL.com had indicated that the injury could sideline the 2011 NFL MVP for three weeks.
Rodgers hurt his non-throwing shoulder during the opening possession of Monday's game against the Bears when he was sacked by Chicago's Shea McClellin. He jogged to the locker room shortly afterward and did not return to the sideline until the third quarter.
The three-time Pro Bowl selection was in sweats and watched Seneca Wallace throw for just 114 yards with an interception on 11-of-19 passing in Green Bay's 27-20 loss.
"I think we'll know more as the week goes on, but I do have a fractured collarbone," Rodgers stated Tuesday on the radio program. "That's a significant injury. We'll know more about the severity and the timetable later this week."
Rodgers hasn't missed a game because of injury since Dec. 19, 2010 after suffering a concussion the previous week.
