It hasn’t been a good Sunday for the Detroit Lions... at all. But things may be a whole lot worse in Green Bay.
Aaron Rodgers suffered a serious-looking in the first quarter of the game against the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers’ shoulder was driven into the ground after throwing an incomplete pass:

Jay Glazer of FOX is the first to report that Green Bay fears Rodgers may have suffered a broken collarbone on the play:

Rodgers went into the medical tent originally, but after a few minutes, the injury was serious enough for him to be carted off into the locker room.
If the initial reports are true, Rodgers will be out for the foreseeable future, and potentially the entire season.
UPDATE: The Packers have confirmed Rodgers has suffered a broken collarbone:

Green Bay’s backup, Brett Hundley, has completed four of eight passes for 43 yards, one touchdown and an interception in a half of play against the Vikings. Green Bay currently trails Minnesota 14-10 at the half.
We’ll continue to update this story as more information comes along, but for now, this could be the biggest news to come out of the NFL today.
