Rodgers to undergo surgery on broken collarbone

Aaron Rodgers has a broken collarbone, and it may be significant enough to end his 2017 season. Even if it isn’t, it’s still an injury that will sideline the Green Bay Packers quarterback for a long time.

Rodgers injured the collarbone on his throwing shoulder in Sunday’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings when he was drilled into the turf by linebacker Anthony Barr.

If he doesn’t return this season, Rodgers will finish with 13 touchdowns, three interceptions, and a 103.2 passer rating. Although it won’t count in the record books due to the truncated year, it marks the ninth season of his career with a rating over 100.

The Packers (4-2) will turn their season over to third-year quarterback Brett Hundley, who will make his first career NFL start at home Sunday versus the New Orleans Saints. Green Bay signed backup quarterback Joe Callahan from the practice squad on Monday.
