Aaron Rodgers is going to miss a lot of time this season after breaking his collarbone on Sunday.
Apparently the ultra-competitive quarterback wasn’t too happy about the hit that is going to keeping him sidelined, and had some choice words for Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr.

Technically, the hit was within the NFL’s guidelines. Rodgers was out of the pocket, meaning he lost some of the rights given to quarterbacks to help curb them taking big hits.
The injury effects his right throwing shoulder and there is a chance it will keep him out the rest of the season.
McCarthy: As far as the QB position, Brett Hundley is my quarterback, Joe Callahan is the backup. That's the direction we're going. #GBvsMIN

That’s bad news for the Green Bay Packers, who are now 4-2 after dropping the game against Minnesota. The Packers will lean on fifth round pick Nick Hundley to lead them them in Rodgers absence.
The drop-off in talent will be huge, and if Green Bay is going to realistically compete for a playoff spot, they’re going to have to play pristine defense every week.
