(NEW YORK) — No team in the NFL wants to see their starting quarterback go down, especially if he’s one of the best in the NFL. According to ESPN, Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could miss three weeks with a collarbone injury.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that initial tests have shown that Rodgers suffered a small fracture in his collarbone during Monday Night’s loss against the Chicago Bears.
Rodgers suffered the injury when he landed awkwardly when he was tackled to the ground by defensive end Shea McClellin.
Since becoming the team’s starting quarterback in 2008, Rodgers has missed just two games over that span.
This is just the latest injury for the Packers. They were already playing without tight end Jermichael Finley, wide receiver Randall Cobb, and linebacker Clay Matthews.
On the season, Rodgers has thrown for 2,218 yards with 15 touchdowns and just four interceptions.
Seneca Wallace is expected to start for the Packers next Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
