Packers' Aaron Rodgers returns after knee injury

Share

Even playing on one good leg, Aaron Rodgers is a special player.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left his team's National Football League opener against the Chicago Bears with an apparent leg injury. Three second half scoring drives including 17 points in the fourth quarter will be the highlight.

Mack filled up the box score, totaling three tackles, one sack, one interception returned for a touchdown and one fumble recovery.

Mack followed by intercepting a pass that Kizer dumped over the middle while trying to avoid a sack by Roy Robertson-Harris. He wasn't putting much weight on his left leg as he left, but walked back onto the field to start the second half.

It was Rodgers' first regular-season game back at Lambeau Field since last September against the Bears. Until then, relive tonight's madness with the top reactions of the night by way of your trusty Twitter community. He was added to the injury report about two hours before the game.

The two-time NFL MVP was replaced by DeShone Kizer on the following offensive drive.

Aaron Rodgers has struggled with injuries in the past, going down in Week 6 last season with a shoulder injury that required surgery.

Rodgers had ACL surgery on his left knee while in college. Mack, who missed all of training camp and the preseason due to a contract holdout with the Raiders, showed the elusiveness of a running back while returning the pick 27 yards for a touchdown to give the Bears a 17-0 lead with:39 left in the half. They took their first drive right down the field and were up 20-0 early into the third quarter. Trubisky completed his first seven passes, looking quite comfortable in new coach Matt Nagy's offense. Trubisky called his own number on an option and scored the first touchdown of the Nagy era on a two-yard run to make it 7-0.
