Clavicle fractures surgery is often chosen when the fracture displaced or when trying to lessen the recovery time. Last time Rodgers had the left clavicle broken in 2013 and took seven long weeks rest without surgery.
Coach Mike said, "He'll be at a minimum of a significant amount of time. Potentially, his season can be over; He'll have surgery here in the near future. After we see how that goes, focus on getting better and healthy-- that's all that really matters right now."
