The Green Bay Packers are awaiting the results of additional tests on quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who injured his left shoulder in Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears, team president Mark Murphy said during an appearance in Manitowoc on Tuesday morning.
Rodgers will undergo a CT scan, according to Murphy, which should reveal more details about the injury, including its severity. The injury is to Rodgers' non-throwing arm.
“We’re going to have CAT scans done today so we should know a little more later in the day,” said Murphy, who made an appearance at Manitowoc Lutheran High School.
ESPN reported earlier Tuesday that initial tests showed Rodgers has a small fracture in his collarbone and could miss three weeks.
Murphy said the Packers’ priorities going forward are “getting Aaron back as soon as we can and also getting Seneca Wallace ready.”
Wallace, who was signed by the Packers at the end of training camp eight weeks ago, replaced Rodgers but struggled in a 27-20 loss to the Bears.
“The reality in the NFL is the injuries are a part of the game,” Murphy said.
