Packers QB Aaron Rodgers acknowledges 'significant injury'

November 06, 2013 - 4:07 am

When the Bears' Shea McClellin sacked Aaron Rodgers in the first quarter of Chicago's 27-20 win at Lambeau Field, Rodgers jogged to the sideline, seemingly unfazed by the hit. However, the hit resulted in a fracture of his left, and non-throwing, collarbone, and now Green Bay must persevere without its leader. Rodgers revealed on his weekly radio spot with ESPN Milwaukee that there's no timetable for his return at the moment. "I do have a fractured collarbone. That's a significant injury," Rodgers said Tuesday. "We'll know more about the severity and the timetable later this week." The injury occurred on the Packers' first series of the game, with Green Bay driving. The drive stalled when McClellin sacked Rodgers to force a fourth down. McClellin wrapped up Rodgers and tossed him to the ground, landing on top of him and crushing the left side of Rodgers' body. In his six years as Green Bay's starting quarterback, Rodgers has never missed consecutive weeks with an injury. The 2011 Super Bowl winner has churned out another productive season thus far, tossing for 2,218 yards, with a 66.9 completion percentage, and 15 touchdowns along with four interceptions.
