Aaron Rodgers Could Miss The Remainder Of The Season With A Broken Collarbone
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left Sunday’s game against the Vikings due to a broken collarbone. Early reports suggest Rodgers may miss the rest of the season, depending on the severity of the injury and type of break.
On a second-quarter Packers drive, Rodgers released a pass while rolling out to his right. Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr, who was sprinting towards the quarterback, finished his tackle on with vigor. The effort resulted in Rodgers landing hard on his right (throwing) shoulder.

After a brief visit to the medical tent, the perennial Pro-Bowler was carted off the field. Rodgers was declared questionable to return after he left for the locker room. The 33 year-old had some choice words for Barr before he left the field. There was no penalty called on the play.
Rodgers was 2 of 4 for 18 yards before he left with the injury. Brett Hundley replaced Rodgers after his departure. Hundley was a 5th-round pick by the Packers in 2015. The former UCLA Bruin was 3 of 11 for 17 yards with 1 interception and no touchdown in his NFL career entering the game.
