After one week back from his broken collarbone, Aaron Rodgers has now been placed on IR ending his season.

In his one game return Rodgers threw for 290 yards and 3 touchdowns and appeared to be on track to finish the season strong, even if the Packers were not able too.  Once their playoff hopes were dashed Packers management decided that it was better to let Rodgers have the time off to completely heal.

Is this simply a precaution to protect their number one guy for the future, or did Rodgers get rushed back in an effort to make a playoff run? Either way, both his and the Packers season is effectively over.
