Packers’ Aaron Rodgers injured, leaves games on cart

Packers’ Aaron Rodgers injured, leaves games on cart”

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (12) celebrates after beating the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.

It was only the fifth time in franchise history that Green Bay came back to win from a 20-point deficit after the Packers trailed 20-0 in the third quarter.

He was nearly ideal over the final 30 minutes, completing 17 passes for 273 yards and three scores in the second half.

Probably the worst possible thing that could've happened to the Green Bay Packers happened Sunday night. Rodgers went 20-for-30 with 286 yards and three touchdowns.

Veteran sports reporter Skip Bayless reported that Rodgers, "Appeared to be slightly shaking his head as the cart took him to the locker room. and his eyes looked a little teary".

After running 19 plays for 146 yards in the first quarter, the Bears managed just six yards on 10 plays in the second quarter.

Edge defender Khalil Mack was dominant at times, especially in the first half when he recorded several pressures, topping it off with a strip sack fumble and interception return for a touchdown.

Rodgers was initially hurt after slipping down and bending awkwardly on a sack in the first half. He sat out nine games during the 2017 season due to a broken collarbone.

The Bears next host the Seahawks for Monday Night Football at 8:20 p.m. ET, while the Packers host the Vikings next Sunday at 1 p.m. ET.

Mack almost stole the show. They failed to put the stake in Rodgers and the Packers, and Rodgers showed why he is a vampire.
