Sunday was not a good day for Packers fans.
The Green Bay Packers lost a divisional game to the Vikings, 23-10, but the game was the least of anyone's concerns as Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in the first quarter and was presumed to be lost for the season.
It was dark times for the Packers, but now there's reason for a little hope.

So you're telling me there's a chance.
This isn't all that uncommon, as when Rodgers broke his left collarbone in 2013 he only missed seven games. However, this injury is on his throwing side, so it's obviously more serious.

It's a shame too because Rodgers was off to yet another hot start, throwing for 1,385 yards, 13 touchdowns and only 3 interceptions before getting hurt. He had also just done this to the Cowboys the week before:
So even the slimmest chance that he can return is going to be grasped at by not only Packers fans but NFL fans everywhere.
The NFL is more fun with Aaron Rodgers.
