Aaron Rodgers has broken collarbone, could miss season

How Aaron Rodgers' broken collarbone impacts the Eagles

Brett Hundley, a third-year pro, was pressed into duty in the first quarter againts Minnesota after Packers starter Aaron Rodgers was lost for the game, and possibly for the season, with a broken collarbone.

But in the span of one play, the Packers and their fans went from hopes of playing for another title to hopes that Rodgers will just return to the field in 2017.

Rodgers was injured in the first quarter after landing on his throwing shoulder after being driven down to the turf by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.

"It's fun because I get to play all over", Smith said. "Obviously we didn't get the job done today, but we'll be back and we'll be better".

Coach Mike McCarthy plans to do that with Hundley. While Romo laughed his statement off, there is now a chance for Romo to do what many predicted he could - but for a very interesting team. "And that's where we are as a football club". The veteran quarterback has again been superb this season, coming into Sunday with 1,367 passing yards, 13 touchdowns and three interceptions.

Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien and Seneca Wallace were forced to fill in while Rodgers missed seven games in 2013 because of a broken collarbone. This time he is expected to be out longer because it's his throwing shoulder.

Packers: With three starting DBs already out with injuries (Morgan Burnett, Davon House and Kevin King), backup CB Quinten Rollins (ankle) was also lost during the game.

During that season, the Packers were 2-4-1 in his absence.

Without Rodgers, the Packers have nearly no chance of making a Super Bowl run unless they make an upgrade at quarterback going forward. "Rodgers is the best, but we still have to go out there and contain and play sound football". "And we need to be better with the 11 people on the field that we have, regardless of the phase that we're in, and ultimately that's my responsibility".

This means when the Steelers square off with the Packers in Week 12 it won't be Rodgers under center but Brett Hundley.
