Aaron Rodgers suffers shoulder injury, does not return vs. Bears : worldleaks
The unthinkable happened on Monday night for the Packers, as quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a shoulder wound and went out from the game to be examined in the locker room. Initially he was listed as questionable but the Packers later ruled him out for the game.
Rodgers appeared to suffer a shoulder wound on his non-throwing arm when he was sacked by Shea McClellin on a third down near the Bears goal line.
After Mason Crosby pulled down a field goal, Rodgers was spotted running quickly with a trainer to the training room. The Packers announced that Rodgers return was questionable at first.
Seneca Wallace warmed up on the sideline and finished the game for the Packers, which is arguably the most terrifying thing that could possibly happen to Green Bay’s football team. Unless, of course, Rodgers is out for a while.
“They don’t have an accurate diagnosis,” Mike McCarthy said when asked about Rodgers’ status after the game.
There’s a report out there that Rodgers suffered a cracked collarbone on the play. Naturally, McCarthy was asked point blank about that specific injury.
“Accurate diagnosis hasn’t been given.”
Alright. One more follow-up question elicited a slightly more angry response.
“No timeline. No exact diagnosis.”
Rodgers isn’t talking either. He told ESPN Wisconsin’s Jason Wilde that he was “getting some tests tomorrow.”
Rodgers added to Wilde — who does a Tuesday show with Rodgers — that he wasn’t sure whether or not he could do his scheduled media appearance.
“Just depends upon my treatment schedule,” Rodgers wrote.
Speculating at this point would be irresponsible. But it’s pretty obvious that no one around the Packers — or near Rodgers — is particularly thrilled about what happened on Monday night. It’s hard to imagine Green Bay bracing for anything other than the worst-case scenario.
