Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered an injury that caused him to leave early during the Packers-Bears game on Monday night. He would not return. Packers backup QB Seneca Wallace filled in for Rodgers. Wallace threw for 11/19, 114 yards, 0 TD and 1 INT. The Packers ended up losing the game, 27-20.
Reports indicate Rodgers suffered a collarbone injury. While the full extent is unclear at the time, it should be noted Rodgers did return to the Packers sideline although not in uniform. Per Acme Packing Company:
[Rodgers] did not appear to be in any serious discomfort and was not wearing a sling, which would have been indicative of a broken collarbone.
Rodgers is obviously a top quarterback in the league. Losing him to injury would be a big loss for Green Bay.
This will be an interesting situation to monitor moving forward. The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Green Bay to face the Packers this upcoming Sunday.
