Baby with Broken Collarbone Named After Aaron Rodgers

The Aaron Rodgers baby

Because… of course! Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has a broken collarbone. The Press-Gazette managed to ferret out a couple — Kyle Dryer and Kristal Tyczkowski — who had a kid last Sunday with a broken collarbone.

And they named the kid after their favorite QB because of the matching injuries.

The boy is named Aaron Rodger Dryer.

His parents dropped the S.

Baby Aaron was born at 12:20 p.m. Sunday at St. Mary’s Hospital Medical Center in Green Bay. He was a couple of weeks early, and his parents had not really settled on a name yet.

But when the nurses discovered the broken left collarbone — on the same side as the quarterback’s injury — the parents did not need long to choose a name. Kyle was the first to suggest it.

“I said, ‘That’s not a bad name,’” recalled the baby’s mother. “That’s when we knew.”

Baby Aaron should be healed within a couple weeks, according to his doctor. Unfortunately, big Aaron doesn’t look like he’s returning to the field anytime soon.

    The baby only needs a couple weeks to heal? Nice shot at Rodgers Monty. What’s your follow up story? The kids 1st words were “Put me in coach”?

    I have an idea…Anyone that has a problem with Rodgers recovery time, find another NFL team to root for. The Green Bay Packers don’t need you.

    Even without the GB Packer influence, Aaron is a fine Biblical name! It’s better than Nimrod which is also Biblical.
