UPDATE: Rodgers calls his fractured collarbone "significant" injury

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he has a fractured left collarbone and he doesn't know how long he'll be out.

Rodgers offered details of the injury on his weekly radio show on 540-AM ESPN on Tuesday. The 2011 NFL MVP got hurt after getting sacked by Shea McClellin on a third-down play during the Packers' first series while he was scrambling outside the pocket. He hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder.

Rodgers called his injury "significant" and said he was in "some pain."

Rodgers hasn't missed a game due to injury since Dec. 19, 2010. Seneca Wallace finished 11 for 19 for 114 yards and an interception in the 27-20 loss.

The Packers host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers could be out three weeks after tests show a small fracture in his collarbone. That's according to league sources who talked with ESPN early Tuesday morning.

Rodgers will undergo further testing Tuesday. The Packers won't make a determination on his status until after that.

Rodgers was injured during the opening series of Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears. He was sacked by defensive end Shea McClellin and landed on his left shoulder.

The Packers went on to lose the game, 27-20.
