Aaron Rodgers gives an update on his collarbone surgery

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rogers broke his right collarbone against the Minnesota Vikings, and he just had surgery. He posted a picture and an update on Instagram to let fans know how he’s doing.

“Surgery went well,” Rodgers wrote. “Thanks for all the love, support, thoughts and prayers. #comebackstartsnow #riseagain.”

He does not look happy at all in the picture, though it’s hard to blame him. The Packers have Super Bowl aspirations every year that he’s behind center, and now that’s all gone thanks to one hit. It’s also the second time he’s broken his collarbone, so he’s knows what the recovery looks like and can’t be thrilled.

Here’s the picture:


It is worth noting that this injury is worse than last time due to the side he broke.

“Aaron Rodgers missed 7 games when he broke his collarbone in 2013,” noted NBC’s Michael David Smith. “That was his left collarbone, this time it’s his right (throwing) side.”

The Packers are planning to start former UCLA quarterback Brett Hundley in place of Rodgers. They play the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Lambeau Field.
