GREEN BAY, Wis. Anthony Rendon Jersey . -- The Packers franchise quarterback is taking a seat. Aaron Rodgers said Tuesday he has a fractured left collarbone and has no idea yet how long he will be out. The 2011 NFL MVP offered details of the injury on his weekly radio show on 540-AM ESPN. He got hurt after getting sacked by the Bears Shea McClellin on a third-down play during the Packers first series while he was scrambling outside the pocket. He hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder. "I do have a fractured collarbone. Thats a significant injury," Rodgers said. "Well know more about the severity and the timetable later this week." Rodgers said he was holding out hope he would heal quickly. "In this case, it was considerably more pain than Ive felt in a long time," he added. That collective groan you heard came from the state of Wisconsin. The sliver of good news for the Packers: coach Mike McCarthy indicated that the injury wont end Rodgers season. He sounded much more optimistic than after Monday nights 27-20 loss to Chicago. "Im relieved, no doubt," McCarthy told reporters at Lambeau Field. "With the new information that was given today, everybody felt better about it. How long? We dont have our hands around a timeline yet, but I know Aaron is very optimistic and hell do everything he can to get back in a timely fashion." So in steps Seneca Wallace, who wasnt even in Packers training camp this off-season, to take over the offence when the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. Wallace was signed before the week of the season opener after Green Bay jettisoned three other backup candidates. Wallace was ineffective in relief in the 27-20 loss against the Bears, finishing 11 for 19 for 114 yards and an interception. It was his first game since Jan. 1, 2012. The Packers can wait until Friday to officially rule out injured players, but McCarthy said "Im preparing Seneca to be the starter, thats the way our game-planning has gone." Yet he seemed to leave open a glimmer of miraculous hope. "But lets not kid ourselves, if (Rodgers) walked in your office and asked for the ball on Saturday, what would you do," he asked rhetorically. "So, well just see what happens." On a team rocked all season by injuries, Rodgers had been a rock. The Packers had reeled off four straight wins despite being without top players like linebacker Clay Matthews (thumb), Randall Cobb (leg) and Jermichael Finley (neck). Losing Rodgers might be the most devastating blow of all. His timing, accuracy and footwork have been typically top-notch. Protected by an improved offensive line, and complemented by a rejuvenated running game, the Packers looked to be serious NFC contenders again considering guys like Matthews and Cobb were expected to return. Rodgers entered Monday night having completed 67 per cent of his 249 pass attempts for 2,191 yards and a 108.0 quarterback rating. He has 15 touchdown passes and four interceptions. And since taking over for the equally dependable Brett Favre in 2008, Rodgers has only missed a game due to injury once -- on Dec. 19, 2010, for a concussion. Rodgers got emotional at one point during his 15-minute radio appearance when he described the reception he got from fans as he walked back to sideline in green warmups in the third quarter. "We put our bodies on the line. We do it because we love this game. But when I walked back out on that field -- Im getting a little choked up here just thinking about it," Rodgers said, "that was one of the top five moments of my career there." Notes: Finley was placed on injured reserve Tuesday, officially ending his season. Finley, a free agent after this season, has said he plans to play again. "The medical decision made for Jermichael was in the best interest of him as a man, as a father, as a husband. This wasnt about football, we were not going to take that chance," McCarthy said. ... Matthews will try to practice this week with a club after having pins removed from his injured right thumb. ... The team also placed linebacker Sam Barrington (hamstring) on injured reserve, and activated tackle Derek Sherrod from the reserve/physically unable to perform list. Sherrod, a first-round draft pick in 2001, hasnt played since breaking his leg in December 2011.

The 21-year-old Canadian earned a spot in his third career ATP final on Saturday thanks to his first Top 10 victory of the new tennis season, a 6-4, 6-4 win over world no. 10 Nicolas Almagro of Spain.TORONTO -- Understandably, Ryan Nelsen is torn about Jermain Defoe and the World Cup. Talk to the Toronto FC manager and he lists off the reasons why his star striker should go to Brazil. But he better than anyone knows that Englands gain would be his loss. "Look, for Toronto FC Id love him to stay obviously, because hes a quality player," said Nelsen, who captained New Zealand at the 2010 World Cup. "But for Jermain, if I was the England manager, I probably would pick him. Because you know what youre going to get with him -- you absolutely know what youre going to get with him." Defoe, who played at the 2010 World Cup, offers England experience and a scoring touch off the bench. He has potted goals everywhere he has played -- including 19 in 55 appearances for his country. The 31-year-old striker says he is in the dark, waiting for the phone to ring. "Its down to the manager," said Defoe, referring to England boss Roy Hodgson. "He picks the squad. "Im sure he knows what every player can do. And even before he was the England manager, he probably knew all the players anyway. So Im sure that the manager knows his squad. And he probably knew his squad a long time ago -- maybe just one or two additions that youre not sure about. "I dont know. Its up to the manager. As players, you just concentrate on playing for your club and then, like you said, you wait for the call." Hodgson has apparently made up his mind. He is set to announce his 23-man squad Monday as well as seven standby players. "Ive known for a while," he is quoted on Englands Football Association website. England will travel to Portugal on May 19 for a training camp that runs through May 23. The squad will reassemble May 27 with a friendlyy against Peru at Wembley on May. Shawn Kelley Jersey. 20. The 23-man World Cup squad will be confirmed June 2. England has friendlies June 3 against Ecuador and June 7 against Honduras, both in Miami, before heading to Brazil for its World Cup opener June 14 against Italy. Realistically Defoe is hoping to land a spot as a reserve striker with Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck of Manchester United, Daniel Sturridge of Liverpool and perhaps Rickie Lambert of Southampton ahead in the pecking order. Given that, some argue that it would make more sense to take a younger player over Defoe. The argument there is that it would be an investment in the future. Nelsen sees the other side to that coin, suggesting his man has the seasoning and mental toughness to survive the England spotlight. "Probably the Brazil and the England national team are the hardest teams in world sport to play for, in terms of expectation and pressure," he said. "You know Jermain can handle that. On the worlds biggest stage, you want to kind off knock out the variables. And I think Jermain does that." "With my TFC hat on, I hope he doesnt (go). I hope he stays here," Nelson added with a laugh. Barring injury, U.S. midfielder Michael Bradley and Brazilian goalkeeper Julio Cesar will leave Toronto for the World Cup. Nelsen expects Cesar to leave his team after the May 23 game against Sporting Kansas City. "Jermain, if he does (go), (will be) roughly about the same time," he added. "(U.S. manager Juergen Klinsmann) Juergen wants Michael now. Or tomorrow," Nelsen said with a smile. "But were trying to hold that. I think for Michael, it will probably be the 19th or the 20th that we lose him." The World Cup runs June 12 to July 13.
