Rodgers injures collarbone in Packers' Monday night loss

GREEN BAY - The Packers have survived plenty of injury scares and continued to win games. Monday night, an injury nightmare became a reality.

Aaron Rodgers injured his collarbone on the Packers first drive, and did not return, as the Bears beat the Packers 27-20. It's Chicago's first win at Lambeau Field since 2007.

Rodgers left the field shortly after getting injured, and the Packers ruled out his return a short time later. Rodgers did come back onto the field with 6:54 remaining in the third quarter, giving a thumbs up to the Packers crowd, but did not go back into the game.

A few reports before the end of Monday night's game, including one report from a Bears sideline reporter, say that Rodgers has a fractured collarbone. There will likely be no word from the Packers until Mike McCarthy speaks to reporters at 4:45 Tuesday afternoon.

Eddie Lacy ran for 150 yards in Rodgers' absence, cementing his status as the most important player in Green Bay's offense until the ninth-year quarterback returns.
