Packers QB Rodgers has fractured left collarbone

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Mr. Reliable is taking a seat.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday he has a fractured left collarbone and has no idea yet how long he will be out.

The 2011 NFL MVP offered details of the injury on his weekly radio show on 540-AM ESPN. He got hurt after getting sacked by Shea McClellin on a third-down play during the Packers’ first series while he was scrambling outside the pocket. He hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder.

“I do have a fractured collarbone. That’s a significant injury,” Rodgers said. “We’ll know more about the severity and the timetable later this week.”

Rodgers said he was holding out hope he would heal quickly. “In this case, it was considerably more pain than I’ve felt in a long time,” he added.

That collective groan you heard came from the state of Wisconsin.

On a team rocked all season by injuries, Rodgers had been the constant and the Packers had reeled off four straight wins despite being without top players like linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb), Randall Cobb (leg) and Jermichael Finley (neck).

Losing Rodgers might be the most devastating blow of all.

His timing, accuracy and footwork have been typically top-notch. Protected by an improved offensive line, and complemented by a rejuvenated running game, the Packers looked to be serious NFC contenders again considering guys like Matthews and Cobb were expected to return.

Purdue seeking solutions as problems continue

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Darrell Hazell isn’t changing course. He can’t afford to now.

Rather than dwelling on last weekend’s demoralizing loss or Purdue’s first six-game losing streak in two decades, Hazell is working overtime to end this ugly tailspin and stabilize a team that appears to be in a free fall. Hazell is not revising his long-term blueprint.
