    Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers says in a post on social media that surgery on his broken collarbone went well. 

    Rodgers thanks fans for their "love, support, thoughts and prayers" in a photo of himself in a hospital bed posted on Instagram. It's not clear where the surgery took place.

    The two-time NFL MVP broke his right collarbone in the first quarter of Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings after he was hit by linebacker Anthony Barr and landed hard on his throwing shoulder. 

    Coach Mike McCarthy said this week that Rodgers' season could potentially be over.

    "Losing Aaron Rodgers speaks for itself," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "In my opinion, he's the best player in football. This is the ultimate team game. We need to be better with the 11 people on the field that we have, regardless of the phase that we're in. Ultimately that's my responsibility."

    Backup Brett Hundley, the Packers' fifth-round draft pick in 2015, is now the starting quarterback.
