Rodgers carted to locker room vs. Bears after knee injury

New No. 2 QB DeShone Kizer took over on the next series for Rodgers, who was sacked twice and pressured consistently with the Bears defensive front winning the battle up front.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left his team's National Football League opener against the Chicago Bears with an apparent leg injury.

Rodgers was carted to the locker room by the medical staff midway through the second quarter.

However, coming out of the halftime break, Michele Tafoya reported during the telecast that Rodgers would try to play in the second half.

He returned for the Packers' first drive of the third quarter, with 9:10 left. He appeared to reach down for the back of his left leg.

Jakeem Grant scored on a tiebreaking 102-yard kickoff return with 14 minutes to go, and the Miami Dolphins overcame two weather delays to win the longest game since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger, beating the Tennessee Titans 27-20 Sunday.

This is the LAST news any fan of the Green Bay Packers - or of attractive, fantastic football - would ever want to hear.

Aaron Rodgers was carted off the field in Sunday night's game against the Chicago Bears after landing awkwardly on his knee, a potentially huge blow for a team that has traditionally struggled without their franchise quarterback. He sat out nine games during the 2017 season due to a broken collarbone.
