Aaron Rodgers injury: Packers report QB broke collarbone, might miss season

Monday, 16 Oct, 2017

That's right. Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone in 2013 which forced him out of a game against the Steelers.

Now, all of a sudden, the Vikings' quarterback problems don't seem as dire as they were a few weeks ago. Packers CB Quinten Rollins left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury.

Minnesota did what it had to do when facing the Packers at nowhere near full strength: It dominated defensively, showed it has figured out the best way to approach its committee of running backs, and grabbed a critical NFC North win.

In his fourth start of the season, Case Keenum completed 24 of his 38 pass attempts for 239 yards while depending on an offense without injured wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Hundley threw two more interceptions, along with a touchdown, and finished 18-of-33 passing for 157 yards in his first meaningful regular-season action since the Packers picked him in the fifth round of the 2015 draft. Nor did he use his feet much in turning upfield, something that made him unsafe in college. "I love having him in the back end because I always know he is going to give me more time to rush". He writhed on the turf as Packers coach Mike McCarthy argued for a roughing the passer penalty. Hundley also threw three picks to Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and a one-handed interception by Harrison Smith. He registered a huge block early on and had a jaw-dropping one-handed catch in the third quarter that was arguably the best reception of the day. Flynn started for the once in 2010 when Rodgers sat out with a concussion and again in 2011 when he rested after the Packers clinched the top seed in the NFC playoffs. This time he is expected to be out longer because it's his throwing shoulder.

Romo is from Wisconsin and the veteran may come out of retirement to play for a good Packers team.

"I'm sure he didn't, yeah", Hundley said.

The Vikings did that Sunday and now, for this week at least, appear to be in the catbird's seat in the division.
