The Packers lost to the Bears last night and, in doing so, dropped into a tie for first place in the NFC North with Chicago and the Detroit Lions. But that's not the only bad news coming out of Green Bay right now.

During the first quarter of the game, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sacked by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin and sustained what appeared to be a shoulder injury. And now, initial tests have reportedly shown that Rodgers has a small fracture in his collarbone. Nothing has been confirmed by the team just yet. But if he does have a fractured collarbone, Rodgers is expected to miss about three weeks of action for Green Bay.

As we said, nothing has been confirmed by the Packers yet, so we'll await official word to see just how bad this situation is for the Packers. But if Rodgers does have a fractured collarbone, Packers fans should probably start to panic. The team doesn't have a reliable backup at the moment (sorry, Seneca Wallace) and there aren't many reliable backups out there right now (sorry, Matt Flynn). So it could be a long month for the team. Stay tuned for more details about Rodgers' injury.
