Rodgers will have surgery to repair a broken right clavicle, but the Packers won't make a decision on his availability for the rest of the season until after the procedure is completed, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. The Packers likely will place Rodgers on injured reserve, which would technically make him eligible to return Week 15 against the Panthers. The current tone suggests he's unlikely to actually be available at that juncture, but a return for the playoffs (if the Packers qualify) might be a bit more realistic. Rodgers came back from a broken clavicle after seven weeks in 2013, but that injury was on the left side of his body and didn't require surgery to heal. Brett Hundley will start Sunday's game against the Saints.
Rodgers broke his collarbone Sunday at Minnesota and may miss the rest of the season. Rodgers sustained the injury on a hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, landing awkwardly on his right arm in the process. With a diagnosis confirmed, Rodgers is a prime candidate to land on injured reserve in the coming days. While Brett Hundley will finish out the contest and likely be named the starting quarterback moving forward, the Packers will also do their due diligence in restocking the position, either via trade or free agency.
Rodgers (shoulder) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's game against the Vikings, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. The Packers initially labeled Rodgers as questionable to return after he exited in the first quarter with a right shoulder injury when he was driven hard into the ground, but upon evaluating the quarterback in the locker room, team trainers determined he wasn't fit to return. Following halftime, Packers head coach Mike McCarthy was unwilling to provide any further updates on Rodgers' status beyond ruling the two-time MVP out for the contest, but Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports the team fears that Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone. He previously sustained that injury during the 2013 season, missing seven games.
The Packers fear Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone during Sunday's game in Minnesota, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports. Rodgers is undergoing tests on his right arm to determine the extent of the damage, but the diagnosis isn't very encouraging for his ability to return in the short term. While the Packers figure out exactly what's hindering Rodgers, the offense will be helmed by third-year pro Brett Hundley.
Rodgers was removed from the first quarter of Sunday's game with a right shoulder injury and is questionable to return. Though Rodgers didn't look to be in overwhelming discomfort when he was carted to the locker room after taking a big hit from the Vikings' Anthony Barr, the severity of his injury won't be known until he undergoes further examination. Another update on Rodgers should be available before or shortly after halftime, but if the franchise quarterback is unable to return to the contest, backup Brett Hundley would direct the offense for the rest of the day.
