Both quarterbacks are off to great starts (Carson Wentz, Cam Newton) and coming off of spectacular games. The Eagles’ third-ranked offense by yards faces the Panthers’ third-ranked defense by yards. Unfortunately, Eagles tackle Lane Johnson was in concussion protocol as of Monday, and they have yet to figure out how to handle his absence.
Rodgers broke his left collarbone in 2013 and missed seven games, but this time it’s the right collarbone for the right-handed quarterback.

Brett Hundley entered the game and led a touchdown drive in the second quarter, but the Packers still trailed as the game entered the fourth quarter.

Rodgers not Green Bay’s only problem The Packers continue to be decimated by injuries. Rodgers wasn’t the only starter lost Sunday. Green Bay also lost starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga, who had just returned from an ankle injury, to a concussion. Cornerback Quinten Rollins left Sunday’s game with an ankle injury, and guard Lane Taylor left and did return with knee and ankle injuries. Left tackle David Bakhtiari aggravated his hamstring injury in the second half of Sunday’s game.
Rodgers sustained the injury in the first quarter of the 23-10 defeat on Sunday as he was hit by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr on a pass intended for Martellus Bennett.
This season, the fourth-year receiver has only 15 catches for 204 yards, with one touchdown. He’s been targeted 31 times. Compare that to his performance in 2015, when he had 92 targets in 11 games. Bryant missed the entire 2016 campaign serving a one-year suspension because of multiple violations of the substance abuse policy.
Since rejoining the Steelers this summer, Bryant, 25, has found himself a minor player in the offense. He had only three targets in the Steelers’ win against the Chiefs Sunday, finishing with two catches for 27 yards.
