Aaron Rodgers confirms he has broken collarbone

Tough news for the Green Bay Packers.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirmed Tuesday he sustained a broken collarbone in Monday night's loss to Chicago, and doctors have not given him a timetable for his return.

"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 us," Rodgers said on his regular Tuesday radio show on 540 AM in Wisconsin.

Rodgers said he tried to play after suffering the injury, "but at that point, the amount of pain I was in, it was rough."

So the burden shifts to backup quarterback Seneca Wallace, who completed 11 of 19 passes and had one pass intercepted in the 27-20 loss to the Bears.

At least Green Bay's running game is working. The Packers have won four of their last five games, and rookie Eddie Lacy has rushed for 545 yards, the most in the NFL during that span.

Lacy, who has run for 596 yards in seven games, is on pace to break the Packers' rookie rushing mark of 1,105 yards, set by John Brockington in 1971.
