Cheap Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers Jersey

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will have surgery on his broken right collarbone “in the near future,” coach Mike McCarthy said Monday.
The quarterback’s season “potentially could be over,” but when asked if he’d consider bringing in a veteran quarterback, McCarthy was clear.

“I’ve got three years invested in Brett Hundley, two years invested in Joe Callahan,” McCarthy said. “The quarterback room is exactly where it needs to be, OK? We’re fortunate to have a great quarterback in Aaron Rodgers. We’re committed to the path that we’re on. We need to play better as a football team.”
McCarthy was adamant that he plans to go forward with Hundley as his starter and Callahan, who was promoted from the practice squad on Monday, as the backup. It’s possible the Packers might add a practice-squad or No. 3 developmental quarterback.
The team won’t make a decision on Rodgers until after the procedure, so he remains on the roster.

Hundley, who replaced Rodgers in Sunday’s 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, will make his first start Sunday against the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field. At this time, there has been no consideration given to bringing in a veteran such as Colin Kaepernick, Robert Griffin III or even Tony Romo.

Rodgers broke his right collarbone after Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr hit him in the first quarter Sunday. The quarterback was rolling out to his right with Barr pressuring him. As Rodgers threw, Barr hit him in the midsection and drove him into the turf, where Rodgers landed on his shoulder.

Packers backup quarterback Brett Hundley threw three interceptions in relief of Aaron Rodgers on Sunday.

McCarthy took issue with Barr’s hit.

“He’s out of the pocket, he’s clearly expecting to get hit,” McCarthy said. “To pin him to the ground like that, I felt it was an illegal act. To sit here and lose any of your players on something like that, it doesn’t feel very good. Yeah, I didn’t like the hit. It was unnecessary … totally unnecessary, in my opinion.”

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer thought the hit was clean.
“We’re playing football,” Zimmer said. “It’s unfortunate that he got hurt but I think everything was above board. We’re not a dirty football team. We’ll never be a dirty football team as long as I’m here. We’re going to play within the rules and sometimes things happen.”
Rodgers missed seven starts in 2013 when he broke his left collarbone. This time he is expected to be out longer because it’s his throwing shoulder. Rodgers did not have surgery four years ago.

Hundley threw one touchdown pass and three interceptions in relief of Rodgers. Two of the interceptions came on deflected passes. The former fifth-round pick out of UCLA played well in his rookie preseason in 2015, when he led the league in exhibition passing yards while throwing seven touchdown passes and one interception.

“He brings a lot of tools to the table,” Packers offensive coordinator Edgar Bennett said. “I think it all starts with his overall preparation and his command in the huddle. You look at the way he’s performed in the preseason, I think he’s a unique player. Go back to his college days, the plays that he made stood out. We know that we have a player that we have all the confidence in.”

After Sunday’s game, the mood in the Packers’ locker room was somber.
“It’s devastating, no question about it,” Packers receiver Randall Cobb said. “First and foremost, it’s one of my closest friends, so to see him go down with that, it’s tough. But we’ve still got to play football. We’ve got a long season ahead of us, and we’ve got to figure out what we’re going to do.”

On Monday, McCarthy tried to turn the attention forward even though there are other injury issues on the offensive line (where three starters dropped out Sunday) and in the secondary (where three starters were inactive and a fourth, cornerback Quinten Rollins, was placed on injured reserve to make room for Callahan).

“We are ready and fired up to go get them Saints,” McCarthy said. “I mean, that’s the mood, it was important to shift gears. We took the later part of our meetings today and focused on getting on to the Saints video. We usually wait ’til Wednesday to do that. Had a bunch of corrections to go through by segment to the offense, defense, special teams. But we’re looking forward to playing again after our performance yesterday.”

Aaron Rodgers’ interception-free streak ends at 318 consecutive passes

ARLINGTON, Texas — Aaron Rodgers’ career-best interception-free streak ended Sunday after 318 consecutive pass attempts. On his 319th, the Green Bay Packers quarterback threw an interception in the third quarter of Sunday’s NFC divisional playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Cowboys safety Jeff Heath made a diving interception on a deep ball intended for Packers receiver Davante Adams. It came with the Packers leading 28-13 with 2:19 left in the third quarter.

Before that, Rodgers’ last interception came on Nov. 13 in a loss at the Tennessee Titans.

In between the two interceptions, Rodgers had thrown 24 touchdowns and had 2,659 yards passing.

The 24 touchdowns was the second-longest streak between picks in NFL history, behind Tom Brady’s 26 in 2010, including playoffs, according to ESPN Stats & Information data.

Quinten Rollins Elite Jersey

GREEN BAY, Wis. — It’s official: The Green Bay Packers will have their Nos. 4 and 5 cornerbacks starting against the NFL’s leading receiver on Sunday.

With the news Friday that Quinten Rollins was ruled out with a groin injury, it means the Packers will be without their top three opening-day cornerbacks against the Falcons’ Julio Jones on Sunday in Atlanta.

In addition to Rollins, the Packers already knew they would be without Sam Shields (who was placed on injured reserve earlier this month because of a concussion) and Damarious Randall (who underwent groin surgery last week).

It leaves second-year pro LaDarius Gunter, a former undrafted free agent, and third-year pro Demetri Goodson, a former sixth-round pick who was suspended for the first four games of this season. They will deal with Jones, who needs 170 yards to reach 1,000 at the midway point of the season.

In Jones’ last outing against the Packers in 2014, he caught 11 passes for 259 yards. About the only cornerback who had any success against Jones in that game was Davon House, who now plays for the Jaguars.

Gunter, who held Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery to three catches for 33 yards last week but struggled in the previous game against the Dez Bryant-less Cowboys, likely will match up against Jones. Gunter is the Packers’ biggest cornerback at 6-foot-2 and 201 pounds.

“I think that’s his strength,” Packers cornerbacks coach Joe Whitt said of Gunter’s size. “He has the length, he has very strong hands. He tries to get his hands on people.”

The Packers also listed four key players as questionable: receiver Randall Cobb (hamstring), receiver/running back Ty Montgomery (illness), guard T.J. Lang (hip) and outside linebacker Clay Matthews (hamstring).

The Packers don’t practice on Fridays, but coach Mike McCarthy estimated that Cobb would have been limited.

“Randall is doing well, progressing,” McCarthy said Friday. “There’s a plan for him moving forward.”

Elite Jared Cook Jersey

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Jared Cook(Jared Cook Jersey) made news again Friday, and this time it had nothing to do the with the ankle injury that has kept him out of the Green Bay Packers’ lineup.

In fact, it didn’t have anything to do with football. This time, it was about chicken wings.

Or, in this case, a chicken head.

The Packers tight end caused a stir when he tweeted a picture of what he said was a chicken head that came in his takeout order earlier this week from the Buffalo Wild Wings just down the street from Lambeau Field.

“I had drove there, took it all the way home, got home, started eating the first wing,” Cook explained Friday. “As I was putting the bone back in the box, I saw the chicken head and immediately spit my food out.”

The restaurant chain issued a statement Friday: “Buffalo Wild Wings takes food preparation, service and quality extremely seriously and we are looking into this situation. We’ve reached out to Jared Cook and our suppliers for more information.”

Cook said he drove back to the restaurant, where he was given a refund and this explanation:

“They were just, like: ‘We’re sorry. Typically, this doesn’t happen. That just means your food was fresh,’” Cook said. “OK, that doesn’t make it any better.”

Cook said he eventually plans to become a vegetarian, and his latest experience might help push him in that direction.

“Seeing as how it’s one of my favorite foods, I don’t see how I can give that up,” Cook said. “My wife is a vegetarian, and she’s strongly encouraging I become one now.

“I think it’s good advice. Eventually, I will become one, but not right now.”

Before he returned his order, he had a little fun with it.

“In the picture, I don’t know if you noticed, but there’s a fork stuck in the bottom of it. The first thing I did was, I FaceTimed her and I pretended the chicken head was talking to her via FaceTime. So, she was pretty grossed out.”

Cook, 29, said he’s never had anything like this happen to him before.

“I’ve never had anything that could taste me back in my food ever,” Cook said.
