Conan O’Brien invited a banged up Aaron Rodgers to play some Assasin’s Creed with him for his ‘Clueless Gamer’ bit on his show, and surprisingly ended up breaking some NFL injury news.
Rodgers told Conan how he broke his collarbone and revealed, for the first time, that he has 13 screws holding it together.
“I rolled out to my right, I threw the ball. And I got tackled and kind of slammed on the ground. But I’m good now, 13 screws later and here I am.”
Of course, Conan couldn’t resist cracking a joke about the “13 screws later” line.
This isn’t encouraging news for Green Bay fans hoping for a late season return. It’s probably time to kill that dream and look ahead to next year.
