Rodgers confirms collarbone injury

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirmed on his weekly radio show today (ESPN-Milwaukee) that he suffered a broken collarbone.  Rodgers suffered the injury while being sacked in Chicago’s 27-20 win over the Packers in Monday Night Football action at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers called it a significant injury but said there’s no timetable for his return.  It leaves Seneca Wallace to get ready to start against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday at Lambeau Field.

The Packers are expected to elevate QB Scott Tolzien to the active roster to serve as backup to Seneca Wallace, although no official move has been announced yet.  The Packers did activate tackle Derek Sherrod from the reserve/physically unable to perform list and placed LB Sam Barrington and TE Jermichael Finley on season ending injured reserve.

Finley played in six games with five starts this season and caught 25 passes for 300 yards (12.0 avg.) and three touchdowns.  Barrington appeared in seven games and recorded three tackles on special teams.
