    Aaron Rodgers likely to miss 4 to 6 weeks for Packers

    The timeline around the return of Aaron Rodgers has been decidedly vague, but the picture is beginning to clear up.

    NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Wednesday that the Green Bay Packers quarterback likely faces a four-to-six-week recovery from the fractured collarbone he suffered in Monday night's 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears, according to two sources informed of the injury. Rapoport was told that the sources believe Rodgers could be back closer to the four-week mark because he's proven to be a quick healer in the past.

    The Packers next face the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Giants and Minnesota Vikings before meeting the Detroit Lions on Thanksgiving. The Detroit tilt falls closer to three weeks out than four, so a more realistic target date might be Green Bay's Week 14 meeting with the Atlanta Falcons on Dec. 8.

    For now, the Packers plan to roll with Seneca Wallace as their starter ahead of backup Scott Tolzien. It's encouraging for Green Bay fans to hear that Rodgers will return this season, and before the playoffs, but the Packers aren't remotely the same team with Wallace at the controls.

    Green Bay now becomes a run-first -- and possibly run-only -- team that won't see the same gaping holes Chicago's inept defense offered up. Teams are going to tee up on Eddie Lacy and force Wallace to make plays with his arm, something he doesn't have a history of in the NFL.

    Whats funny on this... How much do they really trust Wallace to win games? Will they bring in someone who will be a more serious starter?

    Either way, this is good news for us!

    Seriously hilarious situation for them. Seems their GM never planned for AR being injured. ..idiot? Nope genious pmsl. Wallace is pure and utter dirge. ..hope the Pack dont find a replacement qb any time soon. See how the shit feels. For too long the fudge packers have gotten it their own way and too many players are so far up their own arseholes they forget what daylight looks like. Time for the pack to fall.

    It should have been 3 weeks minimum imo. Anyone who has had a groin strain whilst playing any kind of sport knows a week or 2 aint long enough.
    Seems Cutler and Trestman-if both are to blame- both called it wrong last night.

    Rodgers plans to return for TG game with Lions. We need Lions to lose, but is pains me to root for Packers.

    We need the Vikes to win this week and GB next, with the Bears winning out. I never ever ask for much.
