NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Rodgers suffered a small break in his collarbone in Monday night's 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Rodgers addressed the injury on his weekly radio program on ESPNMilwaukee.com, saying, "We do know that the collarbone is fractured. We still have not talked or discussed the long-term prognosis."
"It was considerably more pain than I've felt in a long time," Rodgers went on to say. "I wasn't able to throw like I wanted to."
It's a devastating loss for a Packers team that fell into a three-way tie for first place Monday night with the Bears and Detroit Lions. The much-improved ground game will be leaned on, but there's no way to mask the absence of the NFL's finest passer. Rodgers exited the game with 15 touchdowns and just four picks on the season.
If only Brett Favre were five years younger.
