Packers fans react to Rodgers injury at Pack Attack

WESTON (WAOW) -

Many Packers fans are also staying optimistic about Aaron Rodgers' injury. Some of them shared their thoughts at Tuesday's Pack Attack.

It was this moment when Packers fans said their hearts dropped.

"I almost cried, I thought oh man, I can't believe it, it was hurting," said Bev Jensen.

The Packers most valuable player, Aaron Rodgers, off the field with a broken collarbone.

This, in the middle of a game against the team's arch-rival, the Chicago Bears.

"Tough blow, especially to lose to the Bears Monday night, but we'll move on and continue the season and be at the super bowl the end of the year hopefully," said Kevin Koth.

"It's always scary when one of your team members gets hurt," said Roz Bigalk.

Some have speculated it could take weeks or more for Rodgers to recover.

Even Rodgers said he's not sure when he'll return.

But fans said they're turning this moment of shock and awe into optimism.

"I think he's going to back and sooner than we anticipated," said Jensen.

"With Rodgers, you always think he's going to come back," said Koth.

"Our team is going to do what they've got to do to win, we always do, and at least we'll stand behind them no matter what," said Bigalk.

In the meantime, fans are waiting to see who will step in to fill Rodgers' big shoes.

"It's been a lot of talk about Matt Flynn," Koth.

"Seneca Wallace," said Jensen.

But these green and gold fans are keeping their star quarterback top of mind.

"Get well fast, Aaron," said Jensen.

As the crowd chants "Go Pack Go!" and hopes Rodgers will return soon.

Many fans we talked to said they feel confident the Packers can still make it to the Super Bowl and win.
