The Green Bay Packers may have lost quarterback Aaron Rodgers, but they have not yet lost their season.

Rodgers suffered a fracture of his left collarbone in Monday night’s loss to the Chicago Bears and the Packers confirmed on Tuesday that their star QB will be gone for an undetermined period of time.

In a ESPN radio interview, Rodgers said the team doctors “haven’t talked at all about a timetable.”

He added: “I feel like I’ve been a quick healer in the past and I’m hopeful this will be on the short end of whatever prognosis comes up.”

He’s not the only one.

The loss dumped the Packers into a three-team tie in the NFC North with the Bears and Detroit, all teams with 5-3 records. However, all is not yet lost for Green Bay. The team can survive a short-term absence.

The playoff race in the NFC looks at this point as its likely that the second wild-card team will come from the Black and Blue Division. The runner-up in the West — San Francisco or Sea
