Aaron Rodgers says ‘I’m planning on playing’ vs. Minnesota after knee injury

Aaron Rodgers says ‘I’m planning on playing’ vs. Minnesota after knee injury”

They are stars for a reason, as they step up on the biggest stage, whether healthy or hurt.

Some were questioning why the Green Bay Packers made Rodgers the highest paid QB in National Football League history before the season, and on Sunday, he proved why they did. Rodgers left the game in the first half with an apparent knee injury, only to come back in the third quarter and throw three second-half touchdowns.

Man comes back and leads his team to victory despite the odds.

This is why you pay your stars.

While the difference on the scoreboard was one single point, the gap between the Bears and Green Bay Packers was as wide and evident as ever.

Aaron Rodgers put together a performance on one leg many quarterbacks couldn't do with two. They know how to get to the ball quick and hike it and try to catch you in a substitution.

The Browns famously went 0-16 last season but it seemed their luck had finally turned when they overturned a 21-7 fourth-quarter deficit to force overtime, and then saw the Steelers miss a game-winning kick, only for TJ Watt to block Zane Gonzalez's effort with eight seconds left. And when Kyle Fuller had a chance to ice the game with an errant Rodgers throw right into his midsection, he dropped the ball. "It would have had to take something really catastrophic injury wise to keep me out of the second half".

"I'm really proud of our team", Rodgers said. Whether the Packers played on Sunday or Monday, you can look for these every morning following the game at 10 a.m. Lambeau time. Nagy, Mitch Trubisky and that group will have a lot of questions to answer and could've done more to at least avoid a string of three-and-outs that didn't give the defense much time to rest.

With limited mobility, Rodgers operated a no-huddle offense in the second half that kept him in the pocket.

Davante Adams then found a connection with Rodgers, taking a pass and going 51 yards downfield to set up his later touchdown reception from 12 yards out to make it 20-17.

The defense was clearly the better unit for the Bears, dominating the entire first half and sending Aaron Rodgers to the locker room on a cart with 9:05 to play in the first half.

Meanwhile, Rodgers had only one first-quarter completion, which tied for his fewest in the opening frame since 2014 in Week 17 where he had zero against the Lions.

"You figure that into Green Bay's game", Hicks said.

Mitchell Trubisky was 23 of 35 for 171 yards.
