ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports the Packers are "holding out hope" Aaron Rodgers (collarbone, IR) can return Week 15 against the Panthers.

Rodgers is out for at least the next eight games, but the Packers think there's a chance he'll be back when first eligible. It's an aggressive timetable that sounds like a best-case scenario. Rodgers missed only seven games with a 2013 collarbone fracture. The Packers will need to stay in playoff contention for Rodgers to return this year.

Packers placed Aaron Rodgers (broken collarbone) on injured reserve.

He'll miss at least the next eight weeks. The Packers have yet to rule Rodgers out for the season, so there's a chance he could return in Week 15. Brett Hundley will take over as the starter, but is a downgrade to the entire pass offense. The Packers should become a more run heavy team with Rodgers sidelined.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga has cleared the league's concussion protocol.

Bulaga was concussed last week against the Vikings and had missed three of the first four games with an ankle injury. Green Bay badly needs him in the lineup, especially with fresh meat Brett Hundley taking over under center.

Aaron Rodgers underwent surgery on his broken right collarbone Thursday.

Coach Mike McCarthy announced on Monday that Rodgers would be going under the knife. The Packers are holding off placing Rodgers on injured reserve, but it's believed his season is likely over. An absolute best-case scenario would probably have Rodgers returning for Week 16.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel believes the Packers need to commit to Aaron Jones as their lead back.

With Aaron Rodgers potentially out for the year, the Packers are expected to be more run heavy behind Brett Hundley. Jones rotated with Ty Montgomery last week, but continued to outplay him. Montgomery is averaging 3.2 YPC with one run over 10 yards. He's also struggled on first downs, with three negative and six zero-yard rushes. The Packers need to start Jones and ride him to keep pressure off Hundley and the pass game. It's possible Jones takes over the backfield in Week 7 against the Saints.

Ty Montgomery (ribs) is practicing in full for Week 7 against the Saints.

It's an indication that Montgomery made it through Sunday's game without any setbacks. Now splitting work with Aaron Jones, Montgomery finds himself on the RB2/3 borderline for Week 7 against New Orleans.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy revealed Monday that Aaron Rodgers needs surgery on his broken right collarbone.

It's to his throwing side. McCarthy didn't give an exact timetable, but the fact that Rodgers needs surgery almost certainly knocks him out for the season. Brett Hundley will be the Packers' new starter with Joe Callahan behind him.
Oct 16 - 4:49 PM

Packers placed CB Quinten Rollins on injured reserve with an Achilles' injury, ending his season.

Rollins had been operating as the Packers' No. 4 cornerback, playing a healthy 139 snaps through six weeks. His performance had been poor. The No. 62 overall pick of the 2015 draft, Rollins will be heading into the final year of his rookie contract next season.
Oct 16 - 3:14 PM

Packers promoted QB Joe Callahan from their practice squad.

This was expected with Aaron Rodgers expected to miss at least the next several weeks and possibly the entire season. Callahan will backup Brett Hundley.
Oct 16 - 12:43 PM

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga exited Week 6 against the Vikings with a concussion.

Bulaga just returned Sunday from a multi-week ankle injury. It was the first time all season the Packers had their No. 1 offensive line, and Bulaga, LT David Bakhtiari, and LG Lane Taylor all got hurt again Sunday.
Oct 15 - 7:58 PM

Martellus Bennett caught 2-of-4 targets for 22 yards in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

Bennett had a horrid drop on the 2nd-and-9 pass that Aaron Rodgers broken his collarbone on after being buried into the turf by Anthony Barr. We can keep hoping with Bennett, but it's not happening right now. Give him one more week as a back-end TE1 next week at home against the Saints.
Oct 15 - 5:39 PM

Randall Cobb caught all three of his targets for 28 yards in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

Cobb saw all of his targets in the second half. He has failed to top 45 yards in the past three games and is more of a WR4. Cobb does get a good matchup at home against the Saints in Week 7, but Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) being out severely dampers things.
Oct 15 - 5:34 PM

Davante Adams caught 5-of-10 targets for 54 yards and one touchdown in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

Adams found himself in Xavier Rhodes' coverage a lot of the day, but was able to sneak loose for a wide-open touchdown when Rhodes wasn't on him. Adams is a touchdown machine but will find things tougher moving forward with no Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) and Brett Hundley at quarterback. Adams will be on the WR2/3 borderline next week at home against the Saints.
Oct 15 - 5:18 PM

Jordy Nelson caught 6-of-9 targets for 60 yards in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

Nelson avoided shutdown CB Xavier Rhodes a lot of the day, but that was the lesser concern here. Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in the first quarter, and the offense went in the dumps with Brett Hundley, mustering just 10 points. Nelson needs to be moved down to WR2/3 territory until further notice with Hundley. They do get a good spot at home against the Saints in Week 7.
Oct 15 - 5:10 PM

Aaron Jones rushed 13 times for 41 yards in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.

Jones caught 1-of-4 targets for one yard in the passing game. Ty Montgomery returned from his ribs injury and got the start, so the two backs split reps. Jones out-touched Montgomery 14-11 and out-gained him 42-31. Neither was very good on Sunday with Green Bay scoring just 10 points in the absence of Aaron Rodgers (collarbone). Jones will be an RB2/3 next week versus New Orleans.
