Aaron Rodgers says collarbone surgery went well

Aaron Rodgers, who led the Green Bay Packers to a Super Bowl title in the 2010 season, underwent surgery on Thursday to fix a broken collarbone, United States media reported.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Monday that Rodgers required surgery to fix his broken right collarbone. Thanks for all the love, support, thoughts and prayers.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported earlier in the day that Rodgers would have the surgery Thursday.

Rodgers broke his right clavicle during Green Bay's loss Sunday to the Vikings. If the Packers choose to put him on injured reserve he would have to miss at least the next eight weeks.

Quarterback Brett Hundley, who played the remainder of last week's game, will fill in for Rodgers while he recovers. Now that the surgery is complete, the Packers will have a better sense for Rodgers' recovery timeline and have the information they need to make a decision.

In six games this season, Rodgers has thrown 13 touchdowns and three interceptions.
