Aaron Rodgers leaves Bears game with leg injury

Aaron Rodgers leaves Bears game with leg injury

After coming back from a knee injury, quarterback Aaron Rodgers led the Packers to an improbable 24-23 victory over the Bears on Sunday night.

Rodgers was replaced by DeShone Kizer, who the Packers traded for during the offseason after he started for the Browns during his rookie year. He appeared to reach down for the back of his left leg. Rodgers then walked to the cart that took him up the Lambeau Field tunnel.

The Packers quarterback grabbed his left knee and had to be tended to by team staffers after being sacked by Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris about six minutes into the second quarter.

Trubisky completed 8 of 9 passes for 99 yards to five different receivers on the two scoring drives, including passes of 33 yards to Allen Robinson II and 31 yards to Taylor Gabriel.

"Obviously, that's a tough one for us". Even before Aaron Rodgers exited the game briefly with a leg injury, the Green Bay offense was struggling to move the ball with any sort of effectiveness.

Canada Sheds Jobs in August, Pushing Jobless Rate To 6.0%
Ontario experienced the biggest decrease of the provinces by far with a loss of 80,100 jobs - nearly all of which were part time. The loss of jobs almost wiped out the gains made across the country in July when employment positions increased by 54,100.

All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack dominated the first half for the Bears in his debut for Chicago.

More importantly: In their last 20 meetings with the Packers, the Bears have only won three times. 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. "Just his command and, you know, him kind of just taking over and taking control and basically doing what he sees, it's insane". He returned to the first series after the half to lead the Packers comeback.

Mitchell Trubisky was 23 of 35 for 171 yards.

The Bears secondary played well most of the night but breakdowns in the second half doomed them. Surely this kind of scenario couldn't play out for the Bears against a traditionally stout Packers team on their home field?

Mack finished with three tackles.
