Rodgers Injured, Packers Place Finley On IR

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, Wis. (AP) -- Packers tight end Jermichael Finley is done for the season after the team placed him on injured reserve.

General manager Ted Thompson announced the move Tuesday. Finley had to be carried off on a stretcher after suffering a spinal cord contusion while being tackled Oct. 20 against the Browns.

Finley has said he plans to return to football. He was having a good year with 25 catches for 300 yards and three touchdowns.

Green Bay also placed linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) on injured reserve, and activated tackle Derek Sherrod from the reserve/physically unable to perform list.

Sherrod, a first-round draft pick in 2001, hasn't played since breaking his leg at Kansas City on Dec. 18, 2011.
