Green Bay, WI - Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion in Sunday's overtime loss to the Washington Redskins, and is one of multiple Packers dealing with injuries.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy gave updates Monday, saying it's possible Rodgers could miss the Week 6 game against Miami because of the concussion, which the quarterback suffered on Green Bay's last offensive play.

Rodgers was slow to get off the field following an interception by LaRon Landry, which led to the Redskins' game-winning field goal.

"That thing was fairly evident, just based on the communication," McCarthy said. "There was no evidence or even talk of Aaron during the course of the fourth quarter. But he took a helmet-to-helmet blow there on the last play, and if you watch the tape, just the way he reacted and so forth, that's when it did occur."

McCarthy said the team will make sure Rodgers goes through the required protocol and is properly recovered before returning to the field. He said Rodgers will definitely miss some practice time this week.

He also announced that linebacker Nick Barnett and tight end Jermichael Finley will both require surgery.

Barnett did not play Sunday because of a wrist injury, and McCarthy said Monday that he is scheduled to have surgery Wednesday. A timetable for his recovery will be set following the procedure, and McCarthy is hoping the injury will not be season-ending.

"When you're dealing with his particular injury, they really won't know until they get in there. That's really the fact of the matter," McCarthy said. "So we're holding out hope."

McCarthy said Finley has a knee injury, not a hamstring tendon injury as it was previously stated, and will also require surgery.

"I would be surprised if it's season-ending, but any time you go in for surgery, obviously it's something you have to take the time to evaluate," McCarthy said.

Additionally, McCarthy said tight end Donald Lee has a chest sprain and may miss a couple weeks, while linebacker Clay Matthews has a hamstring strain. He added that Matthews' injury is not as severe as he was initially told.

Safety Derrick Martin has a "pretty significant" knee sprain and will likely miss more than a few weeks, while defensive end Ryan Pickett is dealing with an ankle sprain.
