Aaron Rodgers had screws inserted to repair broken collarbone

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has confirmed that screws were inserted in his fractured right collarbone during surgery Oct. 19 in Southern California.

In a taped appearance on TBS’ “Conan” that airs Thursday night, Rodgers told host Conan O’Brien that doctors used 13 screws to repair his collarbone, which he injured during the first quarter of the Packers’ 23-10 loss to the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 15.

12.5 percent. The Eagles are making it difficult for everyone else in the NFC East right now, but Dallas still has two games in hand against them and five total division games left. The Cowboys’ 12.5 percent chance of winning the division might seem low, but it could look much different in a few weeks.

77.8 percent. A win over the Rams in Week 5 has Seattle in the driver’s seat for the NFC West, and the two teams won’t meet again until Week 15. The Seahawks continue to win with defense, allowing a league-best 15.7 points per game this season.

Charles’ saga over the last two years provided a roller coaster of emotions for the 30-year-old running back, who rushed for 7,260 yards, added 2,457 receiving and scored 63 touchdowns over nine seasons in Kansas City. Charles tore the ACL in his right knee in October 2015, costing him the bulk of his season. He returned in 2016, but knee inflammation limited him to only 12 carries in three games.

Several Ravens players also expressed their frustration with the hard hit.

“If you mess with one of us, you got to mess with all of us. We went out there and gave everything we had for Joe, the team, the coaches and Baltimore,” Ravens defensive tackle Brandon Williams said. “We had to let everybody know that you can’t just mess with one of us and know expect to get hit 53 more times.”

Ravens offensive lineman Ronnie Stanley said Alonso should have been ejected.

“For a hit like that, I think that’s the right call for that,” Stanley said.

Janis absolutely roasted Logan Ryan in the Packers first preseason game

It’s evident on film that Hill was getting better week after week. It was hard not to notice. Even though he generally rushed between the center and one of the guards, which is the shittiest position to pass rush from, Hill was able to consistently push the pocket back into an opposing quarterback’s lap, whether he was double-teamed or not. When teams tried to just let a center or guard try to block Hill one-on-one, they ended up paying for it.

Hill is a big dude — 6’1 and just over 300 pounds — but he has a lot of wiggle to him and that put a lot of pressure on interior linemen who had to be wary of getting run over and getting run around.

Everything was looking up for Hill as the season came to a close and the playoffs beckoned. Then he got hurt in the last game of the regular season. That injury landed Hill on the IR and out of the playoffs. He had to watch from the sideline as his team went all the way down to the wire in the Super Bowl only to lose on that fateful interception at the goal line by not running the damn ball.

Janis absolutely roasted Logan Ryan in the Packers first preseason game, scoring a 26-yard touchdown and setting Twitter ablaze. That’s what we’ve been hoping to see from the former Saginaw Valley standout.

While reports say he’s still a raw project, he’s had a year to work on his game at the NFL level, and he plays in arguably the best offense in the league. Some of the Packers writers seemed disappointed with Janis’ early training camp play, but that highlight for the first preseason game is just a taste of what he’s capable of.

Janis has to battle Ty Montgomery for the No. 4 spot on the depth chart, but he has the tools to do it. Again, when we’re looking at potential opportunities, if Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb or Davante Adams ever went down with an injury, Janis would be in position to make a significant impact with Aaron Rodgers.
