Rodgers suffers concussion in OT

Down for the count: Rodgers could miss next week’s contest in Miami

Left and right, injuries have been piling up for the Pack.  Now, its starting to hit them where it really hurts, where its most significant – the QB position.’s Jason Wilde reports Rodgers took a helmet-to-helmet hit in overtime from the Redskins’ Jeremy Jarmon.  This makes the Packers signal caller iffy for next Sunday in Miami.

Another source: Mike Vandermause, of the Green Bay Press-Gazette also has reported on the concussion for the team’s leader, so, unfortunately, it’s legitimate.  Former LSU championship winner, Matt Flynn, is the team’s back-up QB to Rodgers.

Rodgers was not open to the media after the game. He did not miss any time but was rather slow to get up off the field after the team’s last offensive play, when he was intercepted by LaRon Landry.

Asked on which hit Rogers got the concussion on, coach Mike McCarthy said: “I think it was the one at the end of the game.”

UPDATE: Jermichael Finley did not injure his knee, it has been confirmed by that its instead his hamstring tendon.  His status for next Sunday against Miami is unknown.

“I was like, ‘Should I really tackle this guy, because something crazy is about to happen?’ In the back of the mind, I was like, ‘I shouldn’t do this.’ And I went after it. And something in the back of my leg popped,” Finley said.
