Aaron Rodgers Injury: Packers confirm QB has broken collarbone, could miss the rest of 2017

New, comments

It's official. Packers fans' worst fears are a reality.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

History is repeating itself this afternoon. Four years ago, Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone in a game against an NFC North opponent, putting him on the shelf for eight weeks.

On Sunday in Minnesota, Rodgers went down on his right shoulder on a hit from Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. He was immediately taken to the locker room for evaluation.

Just after halftime, the Packers confirmed the extent of Rodgers' injury: a broken collarbone.

Brett Hundley will replace Rodgers as the starter, and the team will presumably promote Joe Callahan to the active roster from the practice squad.

Stay tuned.
