Below is a list of the most significant NFL injuries in week six.
Aaron Rodgers – QB – Green Bay Packers
On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers superstar was dropped in the backfield by Vikings’ linebacker Anthony Barr. Rodgers landed on his collarbone/shoulder area and was carted into the locker room for further tests. Shortly after ruling Rodgers out, the Packers announced he suffered a broken collarbone and could miss the rest of the season.

Jameis Winston – QB – Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Chandler Jones drove Jameis Winston hard into the turf on Sunday. Winston landed on his throwing shoulder and was immediately examined on the sideline. X-ryas came back negative, but Winston is set for an MRI today.
X-rays on Jameis Winston’s shoulder were negative, and he will undergo an MRI on Monday in Tampa.

With Aaron Rodgers & now Jameis Winston sidelined, we’re up to 10 teams needing multiple QBs this season. #NFL

Leonard Fournette – RB – Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone revealed that Fournette suffered a ‘sprained ankle’ late in the fourth quarter. For those watching, it seemed much worse. In the next offensive possession, the team cleared Fournette to return but later decided against it.

Fournette will undergo more tests today back at the team’s facility. Here is a video of the run. It looks more like a hyperextension than a sprain.
