Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leaves game with leg injury

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leaves game with leg injury

Leave it to Al Michaels, the longtime voice of NBC's Sunday Night Football, to succinctly summarize the brilliance of one Khalil Mack, ex-Raider turned Chicago Bear game-wrecker.

DeShone Kizer took over for Rodgers to finish the first half as Packers fans everywhere held their breath waiting for some more definitive information on their franchise quarterback.

The Bears, with help from star newcomer Khalil Mack, pressured the six-time Pro Bowler early and often as Rodgers completed only three-of-sevem passes for 13 yards, and was sacked twice. Mack's touchdown gave them a 17-0 lead over their divisional rival. Now, he's exited the field of play entirely, getting carted off to the locker room for further evaluation.

Chao added that Rodgers may just be heading to the locker room for precautionary X-Rays, and said the Packers quarterback could still return with a brace on his knee.

But Rodgers returned to the field to begin the third quarter in a scene similar to the one from the Packers' 30-20 Lambeau victory over the Lions in the unofficial 2014 NFC North title game. The struggles and lack of cohesion shared by the starting group was obvious through the first half prior to Rodgers' injury. It took him less than two quarters to get it done for the Bears on Sunday night.
