Rodgers suffered concussion in overtime

The list of walking wounded for the Packers following Sunday’s loss in Washington has grown by one: Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers confirmed following the game that Rodgers suffered a concussion during overtime. It’s not clear when Rodgers suffered the injury, as he never left the game and played every snap.

Rodgers finished 27-of-46 passing for 293 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

The NFL’s new guideliness regarding concussions stipulate that Rogers should get clearance from an independent consultant before he’s allowed to play again.

The list of Packers injuries suffered Sunday is lengthy: TE Jermichael Finley (knee), DE Ryan Pickett (ankle), TE Donald Lee (shoulder) and OLB Clay Matthews (hamstring cramping) all left the game and didn’t return.
