Packers’ Aaron Rodgers out for game

Seneca Wallace AP

An injury suffered by Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will knock him out for at least the rest of Monday night’s game. Now Green Bay will have to hope Seneca Wallace can lead the way — and that Rodgers won’t miss much more time after tonight.

Rodgers suffered the injury on the Packers’ first drive, when Bears linebacker Shea McClellan planted him into the turf. He immediately grimaced in pain and was slow to get up, although he was able to run to the locker room. The Packers described it as a shoulder injury. ESPN initially reported it was a collarbone injury but later said the exact nature of the injury was unknown.

Wallace is the only other quarterback on the Packers’ roster, so if he were to go down tonight the Packers would be in major trouble. They may be in major trouble anyway if this turns out to be an injury that causes Rodgers to miss multiple games.

It’s been a back-and-forth battle between the two NFC North rivals so far, with Bears quarterback Josh McCown leading two touchdown drives, and Packers running back James Starks running through an enormous hole for a 32-yard touchdown. The Bears lead 14-10 midway through the second quarter.

    I wonder if Ted Thompson still has Brett Favre’s number?

  2. graymalkin26 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:44 PM

    Looks good on those self righteous title town knob gobblers…har har!

  3. spd4r8trs says: Nov 4, 2013 9:44 PM

    Soon tone a three way tie in the NFC North…

  4. gbearc says: Nov 4, 2013 9:45 PM

    Matt Flynn has been available for, what, 4 hours?

  5. moerawn says: Nov 4, 2013 9:45 PM

    Is it me or are injuries really up over the last couple of seasons?

  6. spd4r8trs says: Nov 4, 2013 9:45 PM

  7. coltzfan166 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:45 PM

    Bring back Flynn

  8. nfl4days says: Nov 4, 2013 9:45 PM

    Better call Favre.

  9. cbwv1974 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:45 PM

    Matt Flynn will be getting a call tonight. Will be getting a paycheck from his fourth team this year.

  10. contra74 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:45 PM

    And that packer stock just took a nose dive into the negative column

  11. maxkingpin says: Nov 4, 2013 9:46 PM

    Bills just released Matt Flynn.

  12. wearewhowethoughtwewere says: Nov 4, 2013 9:48 PM

    And Matt Flynn was just cut in the nick of time…

  13. klumpofbrownsadness says: Nov 4, 2013 9:49 PM

    My condolences Green Bay. He didn’t cut it as a backup in Cleveland, so I feel your pain.

  14. taintedsaints2009 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:49 PM

    If Wallace also went down, the packers would still have a better qb situation than the Vikings.

  15. taintedsaints2009 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:50 PM

    Is it just me or does Julius peppers look real bad ass in that pic?

  16. herlies says: Nov 4, 2013 9:50 PM

    Maybe next week GB will lose Nelson and Raji.

    Then they can hold tryouts for the locals.

  17. thepftpoet says: Nov 4, 2013 9:50 PM

    The Green Bay Packers are about as good as a CFL team without Rodgers in the lineup

    Karma for Packer fans being obnoxious every single day

  18. ghjjf says: Nov 4, 2013 9:50 PM

    All you people complaining that you wont see a ton of passing because of two backup QBs should switch over to watching arena football, stop trying to twist the NFL into a no defense no running arena football clone. All these pass happy anti defense rule changes are to appease all the fantasy football losers.

  19. jcutlerstoothygrin says: Nov 4, 2013 9:51 PM

    Where’s the packers legendary depth and talent accumulation have them now? In the same place as every other team when their starting qb goes down. In Jacksonville land.

  20. bathroombenlovemachine says: Nov 4, 2013 9:51 PM

    Too bad that classless wife beater Aaron Rodgers will not play next week against the next Super Bowl champs the EAGLES

  21. thejuddstir says: Nov 4, 2013 9:51 PM

    In the past whenever there was a packer injury, packer fans would say “next man up”, haven’t heard or seen that post yet with Rodger’s injury. If Rodgers injury is serious, Packer fans will find out real fast that it’s not as simple as next man up when you don’t have a QB like Rodgers, Manning, Brees or Brady

  22. thepftpoet says: Nov 4, 2013 9:51 PM

    Aaron Rodgers is reportedly suffered a labia injury during the game too

  23. marlin6262 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:51 PM

    Tebow is still around

  24. bobnelsonjr says: Nov 4, 2013 9:53 PM

    That is bad news for the entire league.

    Speedy recovery Aaron.

  25. sportsguy3434 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:54 PM

    Good thing they didn’t waste cap space on a backup qb…doh!

    Pickings r slim now Packers. Vince Young is still available.

  26. iced107 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:54 PM

    As a Ram fan, I feel for ya packer fans.. Nothin sucks like losing your quarterback, especially when the back up really hinders the offense. (Clemens is pretty similar to wallace).

    Hope its a quick recovery.

    Btw gotta love that slick fantasy move tonight – needed a RB and threw in Starks..lovin it!

  27. krenshaws says: Nov 4, 2013 9:55 PM

    First thought was, why wasn’t this a throwing arm injury? Now all I hope is it is a broken collarbone.

  28. gtodriver says: Nov 4, 2013 9:55 PM

    In Ted we (used to) trust…

  29. toocool9090 says: Nov 4, 2013 9:55 PM

    Tebow time!

  30. ihaterogergoodell says: Nov 4, 2013 9:55 PM

    Wait… Where are all the lame Quitler jokes?!?!?

  31. pewitttyler says: Nov 4, 2013 9:56 PM

    Eagles 5-5 baby!!!!

  32. conormacleod says: Nov 4, 2013 9:56 PM

    Cue the Packer rubes trying to somehow think their team is still relevant. The good new is, your “stock” is still worth the same.

  33. nevernudetobias says: Nov 4, 2013 9:56 PM

    Any team that losses it’s franchise quarterback in the first series is going to struggle. It’s bordering on silly season when Gruden lauds a Bears defense playing an offense missing not only Rodgers but also Finley, Cobb and a severely limited James Jones. I’m all for next man up but the reality is this offense is without a massive amount of talent.

  34. conormacleod says: Nov 4, 2013 10:00 PM

    Weird. Rodgers goes down, and the Packers defense sucks. Oh wait, it always has.

  35. isphet71 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:01 PM

    Packers are still plenty good to get some wins without Rodgers for a few weeks.

    -A Lions fan.

  36. jeffesky says: Nov 4, 2013 10:03 PM

    As a hawk fan i liked flynn and he was solid in preseason last year. not fare to judge him getting released by da raiders or bills. if hes not claimed off waivers by another team and aaron is out next week flynn will be on the team tuesday.

  37. detectivejimmymcnulty says: Nov 4, 2013 10:04 PM

    Too bad that classless wife beater Aaron Rodgers will not play next week against the next Super Bowl champs the EAGLES

    You have to be married to have a wife to beat, no?

    And any team that loses a QB the caliber of Rodgers won’t be the same. Especially in the game the QB gets hurt.

  38. edenprairieballer says: Nov 4, 2013 10:04 PM

    You cant sprain a collar bone. Next man up!

  39. edavidberg says: Nov 4, 2013 10:05 PM

    Broken collarbone would be bad news for the Packers. I think a separated non-throwing shoulder would be much better.

  40. leatherface2012 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:05 PM

    hey rodgers. favre would have played thru that. also bj raji, wagging your finger doesnt equate to making tackles. put on some more weight why dontcha

  41. cobaltdriver says: Nov 4, 2013 10:06 PM

    Why are Viking fans wasting their breath on Packer -Bear articles?

  42. 91devinhester23 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:07 PM

    the trolls deserve whatever happens next

  43. byzr says: Nov 4, 2013 10:07 PM

    this is just laughable losing:
    Cobb
    Mathews
    Nick Perry
    Rodgers
    Bryan Bulaga
    Casey Heyward

    not all guys are on IR but still it’s just insane/football

  44. nyjetsfan08 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:08 PM

    Hey, kid, let me show you this is done.

    Signed,

    Brett Favre, 297 consecutive starts over 19 seasons.

  45. packerfantastic says: Nov 4, 2013 10:08 PM

    The real issue is the continual lack of effort out of RT Don Barclay. His giving up on a block is what freed McClellin to make the sack. Hopefully, the Packers will activate Sherrod this week and give him a chance to take the job away from Barclay.

  46. serkeljerks says: Nov 4, 2013 10:09 PM

    Sweet….somebody just won their fantasy football game! I mean, dang, that sucks for the Pack. Sorry.

  47. leatherface2012 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:10 PM

    packer dbs are all like woodson, grabbing jerseys and always trying to catch up

  48. abninf says: Nov 4, 2013 10:11 PM

    Tony Romo would still be in the game. He plays with broken ribs and punctured lungs, and wins with those injuries.

  49. mrsmell says: Nov 4, 2013 10:11 PM

    It should be 3-4 weeks with the injury. The good news is the schedule is very weak. The bad news is the schedule is very weak for a Aaron Rodgers.

  50. ohnoflorio says: Nov 4, 2013 10:11 PM

    Another break for the NYG, what a shocker, god I’ve never seen such a lucky team in my life

  51. sportingbeat says: Nov 4, 2013 10:11 PM

    So this is what being a Patriots fan in 2008 or Colts fan in 2011 feels like.

  52. jack3dsd says: Nov 4, 2013 10:13 PM

    Next man up!! Lets get it Wallace!!!!

  53. oxycode30 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:13 PM

    Shea finally earns a game ball!
    Pack just ordinary without Mr. Rodgers and we now are well positioned to take the division!
    “Next man up” Green Bay? We’ll have to see how that works out for ya. Meanwhile Cutler returns Sunday and all is right with the world.
    Go Bears!

  54. stevenwilliams2013 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:13 PM

    I blame this all on Richie Incognito!!!

  55. marlin6262 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:14 PM

    Favre never would have quit on his team like this.

  56. contra74 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:14 PM

    Where are all the packer trolls? What happened?

  57. thatswhatimsayin says: Nov 4, 2013 10:14 PM

    Oh, my heavens that’s terrible. (sarcasm voice)

  58. blackhawks2010 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:14 PM

    Hope Rodgers is not hurt too badly. Looks like collarbone is done.

  59. ohnoflorio says: Nov 4, 2013 10:16 PM

    I love that poop eating grin after getting injured. – A. Rogers

  60. rickrock6661982 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:19 PM

    Richie Incognito would have prevented that sack.

  61. apkyletexas says: Nov 4, 2013 10:21 PM

    One word – Vince Young baby!!

  62. darkneptune73 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:22 PM

    Nice to see the fudge packers not thinking about the QB backup

    *cuts Vince Young*

  63. beastmode5150 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:23 PM

    Broken collarbone.

  64. jonbeck316 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:23 PM

    Rodgers could have been a great qb. He was just too injury prone.

    This stinks. Every year I keep hoping for a Brady/Rodgers sequel to the Favre/Bledsoe bash.
    Get better quick, dude.

  66. marlin6262 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:24 PM

    Matt Flynn makes so much money for doing nothing you would think he’s on welfare.

  67. Ferdinand says: Nov 4, 2013 10:26 PM

    I was trying to remember who the Packers had that was a QB in college (high school?) who who possibly step in in a dire emergency – unfortunately, I think it was Randall Cobb.

    Am I right or was it someone else?

  68. shayeezy says: Nov 4, 2013 10:28 PM

    quarterbacks have become a little too confident in their ability to extend plays. look at the way drew brees was banged around this week, or the beating russell wilson has take the last two weeks. it can be done, but against good defenses it comes at a cost, and a good internal clock is critical.

  69. wolfmanpatriot says: Nov 4, 2013 10:28 PM

    Let me guess. Apkyletexas is an accountant. :D

  70. rooneyruleblues says: Nov 4, 2013 10:29 PM

    So, If your cowboys make the playoffs, maybe you should break his ribs and puncture a lung. Missing ingredient to his playoff performance, eh?

  72. kam187 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:40 PM

    Awesome!! Most likely I won’t have to face Rodgers in my fantasy football matchup next week! I know queue the ” this is why I hate fantasy football rants “

  73. ponder7vikings says: Nov 4, 2013 10:48 PM

    of course rodgers has to get hurt when the vikings are 1-7

  74. rickrock6661982 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:49 PM

    Out for the game and soon to be out for the season in the next day or so.

    Unless Ryan Braun hooks him up with the magical healing spirits.

  75. Jikky Jax says: Nov 4, 2013 10:49 PM

    Contra – they’re at the game.

  76. shayeezy says: Nov 4, 2013 10:54 PM

    out for the season with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder? nah dog.

  77. leatherface2012 says: Nov 4, 2013 10:58 PM

    gb losing to a team with a backup qb. shows how pathetic they are

  78. leatherface2012 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:01 PM

    nice throw wallace nice catch jordy goofwad

  79. duece5 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:01 PM

    Where are all the pack faithful?
    Almost like they are resigned to the lost season……hey TT…..MAJOR error in judgement in not having a prepared qb……Bears are not good, but the piles are plain ,average to bad without your girl Rein. Blame filthymcnasty on all how telling about calling Ponder noodle arm……….it will SUCK to be apacker fan for the next 4-6,weeks….broken collarbone.

  80. cougar69rt03 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:06 PM

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of fans . Hmmm wow nice job on the backup quarterback situation Ted. Karma seems to be catching up to the packer trolls lol .

  81. leatherface2012 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:07 PM

    if rodgers isnt faking that injury i dont know what///// maybe he has to do more ads

  82. shayeezy says: Nov 4, 2013 11:08 PM

    ..they’re playing with a backup QB, too.

  83. packerpride03 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:09 PM

    Funny last time Rodgers missed a game they won the Super Bowl that year

  84. jingham2 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:12 PM

    Matt Flynn is one lucky bastard…

  85. seahawksteven777 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:15 PM

    Better luck next year, Packers.

  86. dabubble says: Nov 4, 2013 11:15 PM

    I find it interesting that so many people are gleeful Rodgers is out..can’t help your crappy team passed on him..

  87. trapshoot says: Nov 4, 2013 11:17 PM

    They’ll sign Matt Flynn tomorrow.

  88. coltzfan166 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:22 PM

    The only way you can injure your collarbone is by breaking it. He’s out for a month, minimum.

    Matt Flynn, Vince Young, Graham Harrell………Tebow, Favre??? Be interesting to see who they sign (although Harrell would be the least interesting of this bunch).

  89. wallskol86 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:29 PM

    This helped me win in fantasy this week!

  90. cobaltdriver says: Nov 4, 2013 11:29 PM

    Cue the Packer rubes trying to somehow think their team is still relevant. The good new is, your “stock” is still worth the same.

    40 34
    How about cue the pathetic Viking fans who have been non existent the last six weeks until now..must suck not to have your own team to get excited for

  91. cobaltdriver says: Nov 4, 2013 11:36 PM

    of course rodgers has to get hurt when the vikings are 1-7

    9 1
    Still would nt matter..

  92. johngaltwho says: Nov 4, 2013 11:46 PM

    Great effort by the Packers. Bears should be embarrassed winning by one score against a backup who had no practice on a squad decimated by injuries. Eddie Lacey is a beast. Go Pack Go.

  93. muskyhunter2542 says: Nov 4, 2013 11:59 PM

    I know a win is a win. But as a bear fan I would think that it’s hard to find satisfaction barley beating a team with a quarterback that’s only been with the team since the start of the season and didn’t take one snap in all of training camp. Seneca Wallace is a scrub. Bring back Matt Flynn, even if Rogers isn’t going to miss any other time.

  94. onbucky96 says: Nov 5, 2013 12:18 AM

    If Aaron is done for the year, time for the prodigal son to come home. Brett, we need you for 12 games max. What better way to heal wounds than this. It’s go time…

  95. cobaltdriver says: Nov 5, 2013 12:34 AM

    So this is what being a Patriots fan in 2008 or Colts fan in 2011 feels like.

    Or a Viking fan all the time..LOL

  96. davemishsr says: Nov 5, 2013 1:06 AM

    I could not believe that it was Ray Lewis who summed it up best during the post game show when asked how Rodger’s injury affects the Packers. To paraphrase he said that Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers are irreplaceable to their teams. If Rodgers is out for any amount of time the Packers are toast. He should also have said that the NFC has too many good teams for them to overcome his being out of the lineup for an extended period. The Seahawks, 49ers, Lions, Bears, Packers, Saints and Panthers competing for their respective division titles and the two wildcard playoff berths. So seven teams are in the hunt for the 2 wilcard spots but three of those teams will enter the playoffs as a division-winner. So that means that 4 teams are currently vying for 2 playoff spots. Those are not good odds for the Packers if Rodgers is out for any time at all. As for Rodgers I watched the replays and it appeared that two Bears defenders drove his shoulder into the turf. The angle looked bad as Rodgers looked as if his left shoulder was perfectly perpendicular to the field surface when he got hurt. I suspect that he has sustained a tear of his labrum. A good sign was his arm wasn’t immobilized but if he tore the labrum in that shoulder it would not matter. The means that it must be repaired surgically if serious in nature. Even if he can put off surgery that shoulder is ripe for further injury should he attempt to play with a tear. Packers fans can be pretty obnoxious but I wouldn’t wish that on anyone.

  97. calebo94 says: Nov 5, 2013 1:10 AM

    Anthony Dilweg is available..no!!

  98. quidnuncq says: Nov 5, 2013 1:19 AM

    Rodgers jogged off the field with both elbows bent at 90 degrees. Very hard to do with a fractured collarbone/clavicle. It’s likely a shoulder separation of some degree. Now we can just hope it’s a Type I….

  99. genoinabottlenyj says: Nov 5, 2013 2:27 AM

    For the 2014 Football Season you can no longer touch the Quarterback, you can only throw a velcro nerf ball at the QB between the chest and upper thighs

  100. theageofquarrel says: Nov 5, 2013 5:22 AM

    He should have upgraded to grill class!!!!
