Packers’ Aaron Rodgers injured, leaves games on cart

Share

Rodgers appeared to get injured when Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris seemed to fall on Rodgers' left knee after a second-quarter sack.

The Packers quarterback finally walked off Lambeau Field under his own power. He was taken to the medical tent afterward then was sent to the locker room for further testing.

That's the same knee in which Rodgers tore his ACL in high school, an injury that wasn't surgically repaired until college.

The TD was the third Rodgers has accounted for in the fourth quarter, and could very well go down in Packer lore as an all-timer if the team can hold onto their one-point lead in the dying comments of this instant classic.

Rodgers, who was carted off in the first half, connected with receiver Randall Cobb for a catch-and-run through the secondary for a 75-yard touchdown and the go-ahead score with 2:13 left in the game.

Nagy and Vic Fangio deserve credit for calling a masterful first half that put the Packers all the way back against the wall.

Kizer's first two series after Rodgers departed were disastrous - both because of the newest Bears defender, Khalil Mack. That should've iced the game; instead, Rodgers did what he does best. Mack had a 27-yard interception return for a touchdown against backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the second quarter. As of this writing, the Packers are trailing Chicago, 20-0. It was 20-0 as he returned.
