GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - A couple of Green Bay Packers fans whose baby sustained a broken collarbone during birth had no trouble picking a name for their newborn.

They happen to know their favorite NFL quarterback is healing from the same injury. Aaron Rodger Dryer arrived Sunday afternoon at St. Mary's Hospital in Green Bay, just in time for the Packers game against the New York Giants. When the medical staff discovered the newborn had a broken left collarbone, same side as Aaron Rodgers' injury, Kyle Dryer and Kristal Tyczkowski settled on a name for their third child.

The physician who delivered the baby, Dr. Robert Moyer, tells Press-Gazette Media collarbone injuries are fairly common in newborns. He says the injury typically heals easily within a couple of weeks.
