Aaron Rodgers Leaves Game With Knee Injury [Updates]

Aaron Rodgers fully healed from his broken collarbone last season, but he couldn’t get through the Packers’ season opener before hurting his knee.

Rodgers left tonight’s game against the Chicago Bears in the second quarter with a left knee injury. Bears lineman Roy Robertson-Harris sacked Rodgers, and the Packers QB landed awkwardly and immediately began grabbing his left knee.

Rodgers walked off the field, but was taken to the locker room on a cart. The Bears were ahead 10-0 when Rodgers left.

Update, 10:10 p.m.: Rodgers left on a cart, but looks like things were OK. He returned to the game with 9:10 left in the third and the Bears up 20-0.

Update, 10:45 p.m.: Yeah, Rodgers looks pretty good.

The knee injury doesn’t seem to be bothering him too much.

Update, 11:25 p.m.: Two more touchdown passes and Rodgers had the Packers back in front.

The Packers’ defense then held the Bears, and Green Bay won 24-23. A ridiculous performance on both sides to end this one.
