Packers fans lost it last night when Aaron Rodgers went down in the first quarter. No one knew how bad the injury was until now (kinda). According to Adam Schefter, initial tests showed a small fracture in his collarbone that could sideline him about three weeks. They are going to run more tests today. Details after the jump…
Rodgers suffered the injury in Monday night’s 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears after landing on his left shoulder when he was sacked by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin on the game’s opening series.
The Packers do not want to make any determination until Aaron Rodgers undergoes more testing Tuesday, a league sources said.
“It doesn’t look good,” A Packers source told ESPN’s Ed Werder. “This is the one we couldn’t afford to lose.”
Packers coach Mike McCarthy told the source there was no specific diagnosis on Rodgers’ left shoulder. Further tests are due Tuesday, including an MRI, but there was significant enough swelling to prevent doctors from determining the severity of the injury, sources said.
When I asked if Rodgers could miss the rest of the regular season, the source said, “Possibly, but they need to see more.”
