The word on the street and in media rooms everywhere is that QB Aaron Rodgers could be sidelined 4-6 weeks with a fractured collarbone.

What does this mean for the Green Bay Packers?

Well, it means quite a bit. It means that this team is going to be without its captain at the helm for the better part of the back schedule.

For a team completely ravaged inside and out with injuries … it’s a scary thought.

Aaron Rodgers is the face of the Green Bay Packers franchise. He is the leader in that locker room and out on the field. Without him lining up under center, odds of success are very slim. At least … to onlookers everywhere.

But what of the locker room itself? What are the feelings on the inside? I think that the coaching staff and management are taking a higher confidence road than the players seem to be. Jordy Nelson admitted to it being a brutal blow after the loss to the Bears on Monday night. But, McCarthy and Thompson seem to have “all the confidence in the world” in backup Seneca Wallace, even after the poor outing he had in that loss.

No matter what anyone says, the stable truth is that the Green Bay Packers are going to miss Aaron Rodgers … for four to six weeks.

So, what exactly is life going to be like without former Super Bowl Champion and league MVP, Aaron Rodgers?
