They’re the words no Packer fan wants to hear: Aaron Rodgers is down.
Once on the sideline, Rodgers was escorted to the blue medical tent and was later carted to the locker room. He is questionable to return.
Brett Hundley is in the game for the Packers. Clearly, the outlook of the entire season changes if Rodgers is out for any extended period of time. Luckily the Packers have their bye week coming up after next week’s home game against the New Orleans Saints. If there is a fracture of some sort, it will still more than likely take more than a couple weeks to heal.
Rodgers missed seven games in 2013 with a broken collarbone, but hasn’t missed a start since. This would be an absolutely devastating injury if he’s out for any length of time.
Should Anthony Barr have been flagged for his hit on Aaron Rodgers?

Reactions are starting to flow in from around the league to Rodgers' injury:
Damn I hope @AaronRodgers12 is ok! The league is better when he’s healthy. Praying for you.— Richard Sherman (@RSherman_25) October 15, 2017
UPDATE: FOX's Jay Glazer has reported that the Packers fear that Rodgers did indeed break his collarbone. However, a former NFL team doctor does not believe that Rodgers would have a broken clavicle based on the video. The team has not yet confirmed the injury, however, so stay tuned for further updates.
