Rodgers went down hard early in the game, and was instantly favoring his non-throwing shoulder. The Packers’ star QB was initially doubtful to return but was eliminated during the second quarter. While the downgrade obviously isn’t a great sign for Rodgers’ status moving forward, there’s no need for fantasy owners to panic with minimal information available. Hopefully, the Packers will have good news before the end of the night. All we know for now is that Rodgers is done for the game due to a left shoulder injury. He’ll finish just 1-of-2 for 27 passing yards, with nine rushing yards on one carry.
Rodgers has a shoulder injury,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “They want to run more tests. They don’t have an exact diagnosis. We’ll have more information, probable tomorrow on this page.”
Pressed for more information, McCarthy insisted there wasn’t any.
“No timeline, no exact diagnosis,” he said. “That’s where we’re at.”
Rodgers returns to the sidelines and gives the crowd thumbs up but his future status remains unclear.
