NFL: Packers’ Aaron Rodgers will need surgery

NFL: Packers’ Aaron Rodgers will need surgery

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy knew that this was one injury that his two-time NFL MVP could not shake off, and Monday confirmed the worst.

McCarthy said Rodgers will have surgery on his broken right collarbone, putting the rest of the quarterback’s season in jeopardy.

“He’ll be out a minimum, a significant amount of time — potentially the season could be over,” he said.

Backup Brett Hundley is now the starting quarterback. A fifth-round draft pick in 2015, Hundley went 18 of 33 for 157 yards with a touchdown and three interceptions in relief of Rodgers. The Packers promoted third-stringer Joe Callahan from the practice squad to back up Hundley.
