Rodgers' Broken Collarbone Could Be Worse Than 2013

 Tests will be performed to determine if Aaron Rodgers will need surgery on his broken right collarbone from Sunday's 23-10 Green Bay loss at Minnesota.

The Packers' Q-B did not have an operation in 2013 when he broke his left collarbone and missed seven games -- but reports say this one could be worse because it involved his throwing shoulder. The Packers say Rodgers may be out for the season after he was hit hard early by Vikings' linebacker Anthony Barr, who went out later with a concussion -- and it happened right after Rodgers made a rollout pass to Martellus Bennett who dropped the throw. Afterward, coach Mike McCarthy said third year backup Brett Hundley would start with practice squad Q-B Joe Callahan as the backup -- and there was lots of speculation about Green Bay hitting the market to avoid a lost season. The Pack's starting tackles both played together for the first time this season, but both left with injuries -- Bryan Bulaga with a concussion and David Bahktiari aggravating his bad hamstring as guard Lane Taylor left with ankle and knee issues, and corner Quintin Rollins went out with an injured ankle.
