Packers bracing for QB Rodgers absence

Packers bracing for QB Rodgers absence

Since Brett Favre took over for the injured Don Majkowski in the third game of the 1992 season, the Packers have had Favre and Rodgers for all but nine games.

Self-defined as a student of the game, Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman knows just how much better the National Football League is when Rodgers is healthy and performing at a high level.

Tony Romo seems to be enjoying himself in the broadcast booth with Jim Nantz at CBS, but an injury to Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers may have opened up a chance for a storybook comeback.

Brady was informed of the news during his postgame press conference and went from joyous over the win to quickly sullen.

With Rodgers potentially done for the season, the Packers will seemingly turn to Brett Hundley as their starting quarterback moving forward.

Rodgers rode a cart to the locker room for further tests and remained there throughout the first half. "I wouldn't imagine he's a dirty player". "Obviously we didn't get the job done today, but we'll be back and we'll be better".

"He's the best in the game so I hate to see that for him", Vikings safety Harrison Smith said.

As Rodgers walked gingerly to the sideline, he turned to jaw at Barr before entering a tent on the sideline for examination. Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who has had some of his biggest games against the Packers, is the most notable free-agent QB, but he might not be a good fit in Green Bay.

Since becoming the full-time starter in 2008, Rodgers has been remarkably durable.

Four years ago, Rodgers cracked his left collarbone and missed seven starts.

Matt Flynn, Scott Tolzien and Seneca Wallace were forced to fill in while Rodgers was out in 2013 and the Packers went 2-4-1 in that stretch. After a rough start - he threw an interception his first pass of the game - he settled in and got a few things accomplished, albeit with significant field-position help thanks to a couple of takeaways (Clay Matthews' 67-yard fumble return and Damarious Randall's 14-yard interception return).

Favre never sat at all. Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted.
