The Green Bay Packers suffered yet another injury as an Aaron Rodgers injury forced the starting quarterback to leave the team’s Monday Night Football game with a shoulder injury. According to ESPN on Nov. 5, head coach Mike McCarthy said more tests would need to be run before the team could make a statement.
Without Rodgers, the Packers ended up losing the game to the Chicago Bears, 27-20.
Rodgers went 1-for-2 on the opening drive before a sack by Bears DE Shea McClellin took him out of the game. He went to the locker room for X-rays and returned later in the game in street clothes. Seneca Wallace replaced him in the game and finished with 114 passing yards and one interception.
The Aaron Rodgers injury is just the latest name to add to the growing injured list that features two receivers in Randall Cobb and James Jones and tight end Jermichael Finley. The team was able to survive those thanks to Rodgers strong play and his ability to get others involved in the offense.
Without Aaron Rodgers things look bleak in Green Bay, so the team will have to hope the tests bring back some good news for their star quarterback.
