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.
