Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirmed he suffered a fractured left collarbone last night, and that he’s going to miss some time.
How much time, he doesn’t know yet.
Rodgers spoke to ESPNWisconsin’s Jason Wilde during his normal Tuesday radio show on 540 AM, and said doctors “haven’t talked at all about a timetable.”
I feel like I’ve been a quick healer in the past, and I’m hopeful this will be on the short end of whatever prognosis comes up,” Rodgers said.
Rodgers said there’s not a specific treatment he can undergo to speed the healing, and that he simply has to wait for the bone to heal.
He admitted he tried to play through it last night, taking snaps and throwing a few passes, “but at that point, the amount of pain I was in, it was rough.”
The real pain will be for the Packers, who now have to prepare for an extended period without one of the league’s top quarterbacks.
