Surgery to repair the broken collarbone connected to Aaron Rodgers' golden arm was successful Thursday night. 

After the operation, Rodgers took a selfie, made the "hang loose" sign with his hand and said his comeback starts now. 

There's a very slim chance Rodgers heals before the end of the season, but all signs point to the Packers being without their best player until next season. 

Rodgers was injured when Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr drove him into the turf at U.S. Bank Stadium last Sunday. It was a legal hit, although Packers coach Mike McCarthy has had plenty to say about that. 

The Packers will start Brett Hundley at quarterback this Sunday when they play the New Orleans Saints.
