Latest report has Packers QB Aaron Rodgers missing 4-6 weeks

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers @AaronRodgers12 is going to miss some length of time due to his fractured left collarbone. How much time is tough to pin down. It could be three weeks. It could be less than that after the team received some "optimistic" news on Tuesday. The latest educated guess comes from FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo via a source who says that Rodgers will miss "roughly" four-to-six weeks.

Fantasy Analysis:

The Packers haven't even officially ruled out Rodgers for this weekend's game versus the Eagles. Right now, fantasy owners are advised to act as if they will be without Rodgers through the Thanksgiving game, which is a little more than three weeks away. However, it sounds like he has a realistic shot of returning before then. This story will continue to evolve as the days pass.

Where Oh Where for art thou Matt Flynn...Packer Nation is in a freefall of emotions, ranging from slight intrepidation, to full blown Zombie Apocalypse panic. It's been 20 yrs since the QB wearing the Green & Gold hasn't been of Hall of Fame caliber. Is this how most of the League feels all the time ? Everyone my age (48) shudders at the thought of a return to the days of Randy Wright and Lynn Dickie, where a 4 to 6 win season was commonplace. It's so easy to get spoiled.

"Wherefor" doesn't mean what you think it means.

My dear NORDICSAIR, wherefore o' wherefore...ahem...I meant to say, why oh why would you use this forum to correct strangers on Shakespeare usage. But go ahead then. Deny thy name.

Nope. I daresay your Shakespeare is painful. Like reading Kit Marlowe.
