Rodgers wasn't too fond of the hit, sharing words with Barr as he left the field. It was projected that he could miss the remainder of the season and that might come closer to a reality after Monday. Rodgers is planning to have surgery on the collarbone, which would require extensive rehab. Mike McCarthy gave the news at his press conference saying the surgery will happen "in the near future."

Rodgers' importance to the Packers is huge. He has helped keep their Packers relevant despite having a poor defense the past couple years McCarthy isn't worried about three-year backup Brett Hundley taking the starting role telling reporters,"I've got three years invested in Brett Hundley, two years invested in Joe Callahan. The quarterback room is exactly where it needs to be, OK?"

It looked much more concerning on the field, as it looked like his knee buckled on the play. He was planning to return to the game but didn't and sat out the remainder of the game. He has played a big role for the Jaguars, showing that beast mentality he was known for at LSU. The Jags will know the severity of the ankle sprain after further testing.

Jameis Winston

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jamies Winston suffered a sprained AC joint in their game against the Cardinals after being tackled by Chandler Jones. He didn't return to the game and had x-rays done on his shoulder to reveal the sprain. He could play through an AC joint sprain, and it seems like that is what he wants to do, despite the injury being to his throwing shoulder. Head coach Dirk Koetter labels Winston day-to-day.
