Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a concussion and will miss at least some practice time for the Green Bay Packers this week. His availability for Sunday's game against Miami is unclear.

Rodgers sustained a concussion late in Sunday's overtime loss at Washington.

The Packers have been by hit hard by significant injuries to several key players, threatening to derail their season.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says two players are scheduled for surgery: tight end Jermichael Finley (knee) and linebacker Nick Barnett (wrist). McCarthy sounded optimistic that Finley will return this season, and is holding out hope that Barnett also might be back.
