Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leaves field on cart during season opener

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leaves field on cart during season opener

Aaron Rodgers has injured his leg in Sunday night's Week 1 matchup with the Chicago Bears.

Aaron Rodgers has a knee injury and his return to the game is questionable.

Pressure will be the biggest difference maker in this game, and the Bears appear to have the advantage, but Aaron Rodgers is the NFL's best at handling it, and quite frankly, we have no idea exactly who Mitch Trubisky is yet.

So what this likely will come down to - or back to - is Rodgers and Trubisky.

They would play alongside leading tackler Blake Martinez in the Packers' base 3-4 defence.

The Bears complete a field goal to go up 20-0.

The Packers continued evaluations in the blue medical tent on the sideline for the Bears' entire next possession before bringing the cart out to get Rodgers back to the locker room.

The Bears are expected to take a leap forward this year with quarterback Mitchell Trubisky potentially taking the next step in his development and head coach Matt Nagy installing a new system which could be a game changer for Chicago.

Australia, Roland Garros and Wimbledon present their own unique challenges, but NY , the final major, is an island unto itself. Still, he retains the No. 1 ranking no matter if Del Potro or the Novak Djokovic-Kei Nishikori semifinal victor lifts the U.S.


The second-year quarterback out of North Carolina and former No. 2 overall pick had a very up-and-down first National Football League season. Take the Bears to score first.

The Packers are at their best when they can force the defense to respect the running game.

Kizer is again bested by Khalil Mack. He failed to throw more than one touchdown in any single game, but his ability to take off and run bolsters his fantasy football value.

Bears 10, Packers 0: Khalil Mack doing Khalil Mack things.

The number of years it has been since the Bears have beaten the Packers in a season opener. JK Scott's punt goes 39 yards.

We also should expect to see Vic Fangio do at least a little more inside blitzing with Danny Trevathan, Roquan Smith and Nick Kwiatkoski than we're used to, as both Floyd and Mack are capable of dropping into coverage.

Two of Chicago's other defensive regulars could be limited in some fashion against Green Bay.
