Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could miss at least three weeks after sustaining a small fracture in his collarbone, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Rodgers sustained the injury during Green Bay’s 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears this past Monday after landing on his left shoulder when he was sacked by defensive end Shea McClellin in the first quarter.
More definitive scans today but initial tests showed small fracture in Aaron Rodgers' collarbone that could sideline him about three weeks.

But Packers do not want to make any determination until Aaron Rodgers undergoes more testing today. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 5, 2013
However, ESPN reporter Ed Werder said there is a possibility Rodgers could miss the rest of this season.
Packers source on Aaron Rodgers: "It doesn't look good." MRI today. Swelling inhibited diagnosis. Could he miss reg. season? "Possibly."

Packers backup Seneca Wallace filled in for Rodgers and completed 11-of-19 passes for 114 yards, an interception and no touchdowns. He is the only other quarterback on Green Bay’s roster.
Green Bay leaned on rookie running back Eddie Lacy, who had 22 carries for 150 yards and one touchdown against Chicago. He has rushed for 596 yards and four touchdowns this season.
