Despite posting a 5-3 record, The Packers have already dealt with their fair share of injury issues this season, as Randall Cobb, Bryan Bulaga, Nick Perry and Clay Matthews all have missed extended time. While the Packers have held their own against opponents despite losing some of their biggest playmakers this year, Green Bay now faces the challenge of losing its All-Pro quarterback for the next few games, as league sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Aaron Rodgers has a small collarbone fracture and could be out for three weeks. Rodgers went down with the injury during Green Bay's 27-20 loss to the Bears on Monday night at Lambeau Field. Rodgers was 1-of-2 for 27 yards on the opening drive of the game before landing on his left shoulder while being sacked by Shea McClellin. After being examined by Packers team doctor Dr. Pat McKenzie on the bench for a few minutes, Rodgers was taken to the locker room for further testing. Rodgers reappeared in street clothes on the sidelines with 6:54 remaining in the third quarter. While the swelling in Rodgers' shoulder was severe enough that Green Bay could not immediately diagnose his injury, a source told ESPN's Ed Werder, "It doesn't look good. ... This is the one we couldn't afford to lose." Rodgers was replaced by Seneca Wallace. Wallace finished the contest 11-of-19 for 114 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
