Rodgers down and out, Packers lose 23-10

This is of particular interest to the Pittsburgh Steelers on a couple of levels.

Green Bay can either promote second-year player Joe Callahan from the practice squad or sign a street free agent to back up Hundley.

Rodgers was 2 of 4 for 18 yards when the injury happened. Rodgers has missed substantial regular season time only once since becoming Green Bay's starter in 2008. As Rodgers was walking off the field, he let Barr know the hit wasn't a clean one.

The Vikings and Packers are tied atop the NFC North Division at 4-2, a game in front of Detroit and two up on Chicago.

However, with the Packers down by 10 points in the fourth quarter, Hundley got picked off again when it appeared he didn't see safety Harrison Smith underneath on a throw for Nelson.

Back-up QB Brett Hundley threw his first career touchdown pass in relief, connecting with Davante Adams in the second quarter, but was also intercepted three times, and sacked on four occasions, in the contest. Flynn was the third option after Seneca Wallace got hurt and Scott Tolzien got benched.


Hundley is not almost as accurate as Rodgers, but McCarthy and Packers quarterbacks coach Alex Van Pelt must do all they can to put Hundley in a position to make plays while remaining offensively aggressive.

The Vikings play the Ravens at home next Sunday, you can hear that game right here on AM1240 WJON. He'll be asked to keep the Packers alive while Rodgers returns from another broken collarbone.

"Losing Aaron Rodgers speaks for itself".

It's not like they have an unstoppable running game for Hundley to rely on, either.

National Football League players, commentators, and fans took to social media and reacted to Rodgers' injury.

The Packers have relied heavily on Rodgers all season.
