QB Aaron Rodgers has fractured clavicle; Packers in ‘week-to-week mindset’

Posted by Duke Bobber on November 5, 2013 – 5:04 pm


The Packers are in a “week-to-week mindset” with QB Aaron Rodgers’ injury, according to Head Coach Mike McCarthy in a Tuesday afternoon press conference. Rodgers suffered a fracture to the clavicle in the first series of the game when his left shoulder was driven into the ground on a sack by Bears DE Shea McClellin.

McCarthy said the doctors felt much better about the situation on Tuesday, after gathering more information on the injury.

In Rodgers’ potential absence, Seneca Wallace figures to be the starter heading into Sunday’s Week 10 contest with the Philadelphia Eagles at Lambeau Field.

“We’re preparing Seneca Wallace and getting him ready to be the starter,” McCarthy said. “I have all the confidence in the world in Seneca.”

“This is a great opportunity for our football team to show its mettle.”

The Packers head back to the practice field Wednesday afternoon.

    Being “week-to-week” right now is very good news. Sometimes team officials and doctors can say if a player is out for a long period of time right away. This is good news.

    People let go of Matt Flynn and Brett Farve. Have you not noticed how bad Matt Flynn has been and shipped from team to team in a span of months??!! Why in the world would you want him back or Brett for that matter. Let Seneca do his job! The game was still a tough win for the Bears it wasn’t a walkover so be a fan and have a little faith!

    I saw the Bears beat us by just 1 score last night. With one or two more 3rd down conversion, we win that game. And what’s more, the Bears lined up with 7, 8, or 9 in the box and we still ran right over them. Packers power running is here. Even though we lost, I can’t help but feel we will run the table as soon as Aaron is back. 11-5 should be good enough to get in the playoffs, so here’s hoping Rodgers is back within two weeks, which sounds probable.

    What happened to thinking positive, guys? Our big boys came through on D, and Seneca had a doggone good showing for never having been in a Packers game before. When the team practices this week, plays will improve, and they’ll work on not missing tackles. This is OUR Pack – support the team.

    I am from TEXAS and have been a packer fan since Bart Starr has coached the packers. I was so disappointed when Aaron Rogers got hurt and there was not a good back up quarterback to take over and a high school team could of beaten the Chicago Bears. The packers would with a decent back up quarterback. I don’t understand why you don’t get back Matt Flynn back. Again I was disappointed. I waited about 25ys for the packers to win a Superbowl. It finally happened under Brent Farve and then Aaron Rodgers. When I saw the packers play Monday night it brought back memories of the days when the packers where always last in their division. I do not want those days and I believe Matt Flynn would have helped with the team win games.

    Good news for Aaron, the Pack and us fans. He has a fracture vs. a clear break. He is young and in shape. He will heal quickly.

    Wallace will be much improved this week and next.

    Those who predict that we are in trouble, forget what happened last night. Any player, on any given play, can be injured. That fact, changes a teams winning chances.
    This could happen to any of our division opponents or conference opponents.
    Stay calm, trust the coaches who get paid big money to keep the team on course. Trust our defense to step up, as we get our leaders back.

    I’m going to the game Sunday. We need to be LOUD! We need to show them the fans mettle, and give them some energy to feed off of. We’re not Bears, Vikings, or Lions fans, or even worse Eagles fans. We’re the best fans in all of sports, there may never be a better time to prove it.

    The next three games are winnable. Injured players are returning. The Lions play the Bears this week. We’re tied for first in our division.

    Bring Vince Young back…he showed a glimmer of hope at least. He was with the team for a lot less time than Wallace has been and he looked way better. And he is an overall better athlete. And about Flynn, he did not do well outside the Packer offense, but in the Packer offense he will thrive, think. Wallace is not the answer.

  22. By Patrick on Nov 5, 2013 | Reply

    Coach McCarthy has faith in Seneca Wallace but I don’t see the Green Bay offense generating points with him at QB. Aaron Rodgers elevated the players around him. Fourth and fifth string WRs produced with Aaron throwing to them. Aaron kept the offense going despite the injuries. Seneca Wallace doesn’t have the talent to carry an offense/team. Defenses will put 8 in the box to shut down the run game and dare Wallace to beat them with his arm. Green Bay is going to struggle big time with Seneca Wallace at QB so much so that I don’t see them winning any games while he is the starting QB. Aaron is needed back ASAP if Green Bay has any hope at making the playoffs.

  23. By Jean on Nov 5, 2013 | Reply

    I say that there is hope! I think with a chance to practice with the team this week, Wallace will be much improved. Come on people….let’s show our faith in our team and our coaches. Yes, I was saddened by our loss last night, but we will overcome!!!!! The defense definitely needs to step up! Come on, let’s do this for Aaron!! After all he has given us, we need to show him our support of him and the team!

  24. By Matt on Nov 5, 2013 | Reply

    We will just have to deal with Wallace even though it might be a tough fight to the end i think we can pull it off. Our running game will have to step it up even more than it did this season. Week to Week is great news so hopefully that is true and Rodgers will be back for the next two divisional games which are critical for us right now. Lets put that loss behind us and win it for #12. Lets Go Pack!!!

    I really like how Rodgers said it was one of the greatest moments of his career when he walked out of the tunnel after being injured, getting a large, welcoming ovation from the crowd. Touching. I’m glad he realizes how important he is to the packers fan base. Lord knows I died a little on the inside when he went down.

    Toward the end of the first half, Bears start at their one, kick a field goal as time expires. Just under ten minutes to go in the game, Bears start deep in their own territory, use nine minutes or so, kick another field goal. Defense gets off the field a little more expeditiously, might have a different result. Defense doesn’t get off the field, doesn’t matter who is taking the snaps.

    I agree with posts above, the team showed their mettle last night and it was a disappointment. This defense, even with Matthews, is not up to the task and certainly not one to win a championship with.

    I’m less concerned about Wallace/Rodgers/the offense than I am about this horrible defense. Absolutely cannot get a stop when it has to.

    I am keeping my hopes up. Seneca isn’t Aaron, but he threw a couple of good shots downfield last night. All he has to do is not turn it over, and let the rest of the team have an opportunity to make a win or two while Aaron heals. If he does, he’s a mid-season hero! And the Pack can certainly still make the playoffs, it’s not over by a long shot. GO PACKERS!!!!!!!!!!

    A week of preparation for Seneca Wallace will help but it won’t keep defensive lineman from swatting the ball back into his face. The one injury NFL teams can’t overcome over the long term is at the QB position. I would rather put my faith in a quick healing Aaron Rodgers than relying on Seneca Wallace at QB.

    I think the Packers can win some of these games without Rodgers because we have an easy 3 game stretch coming up.

    I don’t know why some people are so convinced that Young would be that much better. I remember Flynn did not look very good in his 1st game vs Detroit when he came in after Rodgers concussion. Then after a week to prepare he was very good vs New England. Not saying that will happen with Wallace, but I will give him a chance with a week of preparation.

    I posted this on NFL.com, so I will gladly put it through here with a little more elaboration. A-Rod is going to collect his gigantic pay check no matter if he is riding the bench or playing – and his competiveness can’t help the Packers if statistically they can not make the playoff’s. There is a solid chance that by the team Rodgers is ready, the Packers season will done and they are just playing out the season and looking to the next year.

    I reckon Mike McCarthy has to say that about Wallace but the situation just doesn’t make sense. There are so many talented QB’s that have come out of college the last 3 years yet the whole back-up QB fiasco this year has been mind boggling. Minnesota with Freeman, Fitzpatrick with Tennessee, Flynn in Oakland and Henne at Jacksonville all struggled and lost every game meanwhile how many more Thaddeus Lewis’s are there sitting around on practice squads or out of football altogether. High time the NFL had a minor league with franchises in places like Hartford, Shreveport, Toronto, Montreal, Akron, Columbus, Brooklyn, Bronx, Queens, Anahiem, LA, Evansville, Lexington, Milwaukee, Providence, Rochester, Syracuse, Toledo, Newark, Staten Island, San Antonio, Erie, Muncie,Portland, Las Vegas, Sacramento, Fresno, Mesa, Tuscon, Omaha, Tulsa, Wichita etc. to give the kids a place to play until needed. Done right and TV money would pay the whole shot. Play from September to the trading deadline and then break until after the super bowl finishing up from mid February to the end of April.

    I really don’t like the gloom and doomers here. I believe Seneca has the skills to be a competent NFL quarterback. I believe this because Ted Thompson signed him to our team and Mike McCarthy is his Head Coach. Seneca has a team around him who believes in their Coach and the system he has instilled. The players around Seneca are outstanding players and believe, why can’t we? I believe we have gone over the saturation point of high level players not playing due to injury, yet we were in that game last night until the very end.

    I still believe we are a top level playoff contender. I believe we the best combined 53 in the league. We may not have the best 11 right now, but we have the best 53 and it takes 53 to be elite in this league.

    If it were not for holding non-calls on the Bear wide receivers, especially Marshall, the last drive never happens by the Bears. Also, McCarthy’s decision to not challenge the 3rd and 11 catch by the tight end could have changed the outlook of the game completely. He had 3 TOs in his pocket and was unwilling to take the risk on something that could have easily been reversed. Confidence starts at the top and he showed a lack of confidence on Wallace by his play calling and should have tested the refs on that call.

    The running game is looking dominant and needs to stay that way for years so we can keep 12 healthy.

    I hope Aaron recovers quickly without any underlying problems. He’s really a good Man in all aspects and it’s an honor to have him on “our” team. What this boils down to now is the “Team”. The Green Bay Packers Team is unquestionably the best in the league. Seneca is just part of it as is Aaron, and all the rest. I’m positive with a little duct tape, bailing wire, and some intuitive applications Mike can have this grid iron green and gold monster devouring it’s adversaries in a week. The fans know this in their hearts, and I believe the players do too. It’s no time here to doubt the ability of the team as a whole. It’s time to support the team as loyal fans, and help them excel in their game. Go Packers!

    Get out of town! Do you REFUSE to pay attention to what the people who KNOW what is going on have been saying?
    Wallace came in cold Monday night – into an offense that was prepped to operate around Aaron Rodgers – NOT Seneca Wallace. So can you judge him based on that? Not unless you’re a moron. This week will be ALL about preparing the team to function 100% around Seneca Wallace. Plays designed to maximize his strong points. Plays that he will get plenty of reps with during practice all week. the Seneca Wallace you see this coming Sunday will be NOTHING like the Seneca Wallace you saw Monday night.
    So if you’re just throwing up your arms and wailing that the season is over … you can’t honestly claim to be a Packers fan.
    Would McCarthy keep Wallace on the roster if he didn’t believe he had the skills to get the job done when he has to? No. And to think otherwise is ridiculous!

    A few posters remarked that Green Bay has 3 easy games coming up. That may have been the case with Rodgers at QB but not with Seneca Wallace. The Eagles are a better team on the road than at home (Eagles haven’t won a game at home since Sept. of last year). The betting line went from Packers -9 to -2.5 after the Rodgers injury. The Giants have owned Green Bay the past two years and Met Life Stadium is a tough place for visiting teams. Minnesota is a Division game which is always tough. I hope i’m wrong but I believe the Packers offense suffers big time w/o Rodgers and they will be hard pressed to be a .500 team in his absence.

Didn’t look too promising on Monday night, but if Matthews comes back and Perry can stay healthy for more than a week, maybe. My confidence meter re: Wallace is pegged at low.

    As for winning the games, well, he has as good of a shot if not better than the alternatives and frankly it does not matter; the season is impaired now. Win’s would be a bonus.

    Do the right thing Green Bay. Bring back Favre and reconcile what all NFL fans would like to see; #4 hanging in Lambeau.”

    Andres, any clavicle (collarbone fracture) is going to require a minimum of 4 weeks, even if it is a simple union fracture. Any other it will likely be 6 weeks. No getting around it.

    Best wishes to Aaron Rodgers for a Quick and full recovery. As a Chicago Bear fan and as a football fan, I respect Mr. Rodgers as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time. One should never wish injury on any player. Let’s remember sportsmanship. Let’s remember that after all…..”It’s just a Game.”

    I’m curious if Rodgers is going to use hyperbaric oxygen therapy like Colston from the Saints.

    O-line has been solid and it was good coverage by the bears. Aaron should have thrown with ball through the in-zone and not tried to buy time. His abilities to escape pressure have literally caught up to him. Throw the ball away and kick the FG. Next five series would have been 31 points, enough for win and no injury. Get well soon Packers…

    I’m a German from Germany and I’ve been one of the few Packers fans here in Germany. I visited Lambeau in 99 and often proudly wear my green-yellow hats and shirts.

    Of course I also was shocked seeing our #12 leaving the field last Mon night (Tue very early morning for me) due to the injury. That Seneca could not replace Aaron 1:1 was not surprising. But I’m an optimist and believe that they will prepare him for the next match as good as possible. With a good rushing (rookie E. Lacy!), the underestimated WR Jordy N. and a strong defense we will beat the Eagles next Sun at Lambeau!

    Just wanted to show my support to the Packers fans from this side of the big pond. GO PACK!

    Packers are still the packers ….Support wallace until Rodgers return ….

    Yes, the constant injuries are a problem. Mathews is a key part of our defense. Now it seems that he misses more games than he plays in each year. Hawk is a stud, he rarely misses games. We need more like him!

    Yes the running game is coming around, but it still requires a quarterback who can recognize defenses, call an audible and has an accurate arm on those 3rd and long situations. As for day to day or week to week I don’t see Rodgers back in less than 4 weeks, a fracture takes time to mend. I agree the defense needs to step up big time, but the O line also needs to protect the QB which this line has not done very well so far this season
