UPDATE: Packers' Rodgers has fractured left collarbone

UPDATED Tuesday, November 5, 2013 --- 3:09 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says he has a fractured left collarbone and he doesn't know how long he'll be out.

Rodgers offered details of the injury on his weekly radio show on 540-AM ESPN on Tuesday. The 2011 NFL MVP 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.

Rodgers called his injury "significant" and said he was in "some pain."

Rodgers hasn't missed a game due to injury since Dec. 19, 2010. Seneca Wallace finished 11 for 19 for 114 yards and an interception in the 27-20 loss.

The Packers host the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

From our news partner, WITI in Milwaukee:

GREEN BAY (WITI) — Initial tests show that Aaron Rodgers suffered a small collarbone fracture during Monday night’s game against the Bears, according to ESPN. Rodgers could miss three weeks due to the injury.

Rodgers suffered the injury to his left shoulder after he was sacked on third down by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin.

According to ESPN, the swelling in Rodgers’ shoulder was too significant Monday night to determine the extent of the injury, however, a source told ESPN that “it doesn’t look good,”

Rodgers is expected to undergo further testing Tuesday, November 5th.

Following the game, Mike McCarthy did not give specifics on the injury and said they needed to run more tests, according to ESPN.com.

“Just had a chance to speak with Aaron; he has a shoulder injury,” McCarthy said. “They want to run more tests. They don’t have an exact diagnosis.”

“No timeline, no exact diagnosis,” McCarthy said.
