Packers: Aaron Rodgers has concussion

GreenBay -- Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been diagnosed with a concussion and may miss the Packers' game Sunday against Miami.

Green Bay Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday Rodgers was injured on the Packer's final offensive play. He threw an interception on the play, a turnover that set up the Washington Redskins' game-winning field goal.

"That thing was fairly evident, just based on the communication," McCarthy said. "There was no evidence or even talk of Aaron during the course of the fourth quarter. But he took a helmet-to-helmet blow there on the last play and, if you watch the tape, just the way he reacted and so forth, that's when it did occur."
