Aaron Rodgers Injury: Bum Shoulder Could Sideline For Rematch With Vikings

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

In case you've been asleep, living under a rock, or in outer space since last night, the big story in the NFL today involves Green Bay Packers' quarterback Aaron Rodgers having to leave his team's 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears after taking a sack in the first quarter. Today, tests revealed that he has a fracture in his shoulder that could cause him to miss "about three weeks." The folks at Acme Packing Company have all the news that is news about the situation right here.

If it turns out that Rodgers does, in fact, miss three weeks, the third of those three games would be the rematch between the Packers and the Minnesota Vikings at Lambeau Field on November 24th. (Actually, it stands to reason that he could miss four games, as the Packers play the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving Day, just four days after that rematch with Minnesota.)

As we heard a lot leading up to the first meeting between these two teams, Rodgers is an absolute Viking killer. In 12 career starts against Minnesota, he's compiled an 8-4 record (including a 5-1 mark at Lambeau Field) and has a touchdown-to-interception ratio of 26-to-4 in those games while completing nearly 72% of his passes.

That said, it always sucks when a player of Rodgers' caliber gets injured. We felt it a couple of years ago when Adrian Peterson went down. It certainly isn't anything to celebrate or take joy in, particularly when our team is the only one that isn't a part of a three-way tie for the NFC North lead at present.

It wouldn't be anything to celebrate or take joy in if the Vikings were in contention, either. Just saying is all.

And, in typical modern, internet fashion, it took roughly an hour or so after the Bears/Packers game was finished for the name of Brett Favre to surface. Spoiler. . .they'll be having snowball fights in the Sahara before that happens.
