The 29-year-old Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone on Monday during Green Bay’s 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears.
Fortunately, Rodgers injured his non-throwing shoulder and some onlookers predict the 2011 AP NFL MVP will return on Thanksgiving when the Packers face the Lions in Detroit.
Directing the league’s third premier attack, the former Golden Bear has thrown 15 scores, against four interceptions, for 2,218 yards over eight contests.
Most impressively, the 6-foot-2, 225 pound Rodgers has completed 66.9% of his 251 attempts.
Athletic, smart and possessing an extremely powerful arm, Rodgers is arguably the preeminent passer in the sport today.
Regrettably, with Seneca Wallace under center, the Packers are nothing more than a middling contender.
However, sitting at 5-3 and battling the Lions and Bears for supremacy in the NFC North, Green Bay should be able to stay afloat over the next few weeks competing against inept squads like the Eagles, Giants and Vikings.
Exhibiting admirable character and great testicular fortitude, expect Aaron Rodgers to resurface on Turkey Day, feast on Detroit’s defense, and ultimately lead the Packers to their third consecutive division title.by
