Aaron Rodgers Timetable to Return

The best quarterback went down on the field on Monday night and was holding his shoulder in pain. Aaron Rodgers left the game and likely will be out for the next 4-6 weeks with a broken collarbone according to reports.

With Rodgers on the sideline the team will have to rely on their running game. Eddie Lacy might be getting the ball more often now to help take the pressure off of the quarterback. When Rodgers went down with an injury on Monday, Seneca Wallace stepped in to take the snaps under center. Wallace would be the lead candidate to start games while Rodgers is out, but the team might want to consider starting Scott Tolzien also.

Tolzien was just brought up from the practice squad and should know the playbook well after sitting on the practice squad all season. He is better than Wallace at pushing the ball down the field. There might be a little quarterback controversy on our hands for a few weeks while Rodgers is on the sideline. Someone has to step up while Rodgers is out.

Packers fans will quickly see what life is like without the best quarterback under center. Sounds scary.
