A couple of Green Bay Packer fans had no trouble coming up with a name for their son, who was born Sunday with a broken collarbone.

Just hours before Sunday’s kickoff, Aaron Rodger Dryer came into the world at 8 pounds, the Green Bay Press-Gazette reported.

His parents named him after the star Packers quarterback, Aaron Rodgers, who suffered the same injury against the Bears several weeks ago.

Both are expected to be healed in six weeks.


“He’ll be taking snaps,” the baby’s father, Kyle Dryer, said Tuesday.

Aaron’s parents hadn’t settled on a name by the time he was born, so when the nurses discovered his broken collarbone, Kyle came up with the name, the Press-Gazette reported.

“I said, ‘That’s not a bad name,’” said mother Kristal Tyczkowski. “That’s when we knew.”

“I’m pretty sure he will be proud of it,” she said.

Dr. Robert Moyer, who delivered Aaron at St. Mary’s Hospital, was excited about the name.

“That fit him perfectly” he told the paper. “He was meant to be Aaron Rodger.”
