The two-time NFL MVP broke his right collarbone in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings after he was hit by linebacker Anthony Barr and landed hard on his throwing shoulder.
Coach Mike McCarthy says there's no timeline for Rodgers' return, and he could be out for the season.
Backup Brett Hundley has replaced Rodgers. He will make his first NFL start at home on Sunday against New Orleans.
