You could have heard a pin drop in Lambeau at the end of the Green Bay Packers opening drive, as their star quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, was injured. He has since been ruled out for the remainder of the game with an injury to his left (non-throwing) shoulder.
DEVELOPING: Aaron Rodgers has gone to the locker room after a sack to get his left shoulder evaluated.

After some early sideline tests by the Packers medical staff, Rodgers was seen jogging to the team locker room. It should be noted that the team doctor returned to the sideline, without Rodgers. Take from that what you will, but the fear is that the injury could be diagnosed as a collarbone fracture.
At the moment Seneca Wallace has taken over the All-Pro quarterback, but you'll probably see the Packers put a claim on Matt Flynn, or maybe even Vince Young.
This will be an interesting story line to follow, as the Packers, Lions, and Bears essentially mirror each others record in the tight NFC North.

I'm going to say that Aaron Rodgers's mustache is unlucky so far this season.

To put the Aaron Rodgers injury in perspective for non football fans, it's like going to see The Jackson 5 without Michael. Go Pack Go.
