Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirmed on his ESPN Milwaukee radio show on Tuesday afternoon that he has a broken left collarbone but doesn’t have a timetable on when he will return.

Rodgers said he experienced more pain than he’d felt in a long time after getting sacked by Chicago Bears defensive end Shea McClellin on the first series of Monday night's game at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers said he has been a fast healer from past injuries, but in this case, he likely will have to wait for the bone to heal. The broken collarbone is on the left side, his non-throwing arm.

Rodgers said he will continue to undergo additional tests and will know more as the week goes on, but he hasn’t talked yet with doctors about a specific amount of time he will be out.

Rodgers said based on his personality, he’s going to try to return as fast as possible.

“I have a fractured collarbone, and we have not talked at all – regardless of what’s been reported – we haven’t talked at all about a timetable or anything,” Rodgers said.

“We’re still going through the process of testing, but we do know that the collarbone is fractured and we still have not talked about or discussed any long-term prognosis.”

Asked whether he was still hoping to play on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, Rodgers said: “I think we’ll know more as the week goes on, but I do have a fractured collarbone. That’s a significant injury. We’ll know more about the severity and the timetable later this week.

“There has not been any timetable that has been talked about with me, the docs, coaches, anybody who represents me, any of my family members. So, we’re holding out hope that this will be a quick heal. But it is a significant injury.”
