Tough break for the 5-3 Green Bay Packers. The team took a hit Monday night (Nov. 4), when quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down, suffering a broken collarbone.
League sources tell ESPN.com that the 29-year-old NFL star will likely miss three weeks, as he heals.
Rodgers suffered the injury in Monday night’s 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears, when he landed on his left shoulder after being sacked by defensive end Shea McClellin on the game’s opening series. Word is, it’s a small fracture, so he will not need surgery.
Rodgers is just the latest in a string of injuries the Packers have endured so far this season. The team was already without Pro Bowl linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb), wide receiver Randall Cobb (fibula) and tight end Jermichael Finley (neck) for Monday night’s game.
