Them’s the breaks
Green Bay’s all-time great quarterback Aaron Rodgers is not currently quarterbacking. Two weeks ago, he suffered a broken collarbone after being hit by Minnesota’s Anthony Barr. The injury likely ended his season. Green Bay is in something of a tailspin, as its plan was largely built around, you know, having a future Hall of Fame QB on the field and not Brett Hundley.
All of this means Rodgers has a lot of free time on his hands. Part of that was spent recently on Conan O’Brien’s Clueless Gamer show while trying out Assassin’s Creed: Origins. No one spent a lot of time worrying about Assassin’s Creed, though. (If you’re interested in that, we have a review you should probably check out.)
Instead, Conan spends the segment focused on the 13 screws in Rodgers’ shoulder, bringing in an anatomical likeness to recreate the injury, and clowning on Green Bay offensive lineman David Bakhtiari. Someone’s gotta take the blame for this.
