Rodgers carted to locker room vs. Bears after knee injury

The Green Bay Packers have come roaring back against the Chicago Bears behind quarterback Aaron Rodgers.

Rodgers joined the rest of the offense for the Packers' first drive of the second half with about 9 minutes left in the third quarter.

Rodgers left the field on the front seat of a cart in the second quarter with a knee injury.

Stepping up: Jamaal Williams led the Packers with 47 rushing yards against Chicago, but perhaps made his biggest play of the night on Rodgers' 51-yard pass to Davante Adams in the third quarter.

Employing different personnel groupings on almost every snap and multiple formations, the Bears offense kept the Packers' defense off balance while driving 86 yards for a TD with its first possession of the season.

A mention of the four-year, $134 million, $100 million guaranteed contract as a reason not to come back? He sat out nine games during the 2017 season due to a broken collarbone. Well, we take that back.

After he was taken to the medical tent to be evaluated, Rodgers was carted to the locker room amid concern that Rodgers may have sustained a serious injury. The Bears had first-and-goal from the 7-yard line, but they couldn't get in the end zone. "As we kept stringing those together, we started making plays". One Mason Crosby extra point later, and the Packers had their first lead of the game.

The Packers plan to run more tests on their QB on Monday, though Rodgers seems to think his availability for next week's game against Minnesota is a foregone conclusion.

Mack returned a 27-yard interception from backup quarterback DeShone Kizer for a touchdown. "We knew what they were going to do and knew it was going to be some hard hitting in the gaps, but we're always ready for the challenge".

And just like that, Rodgers tied the largest comeback win of his National Football League career, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

And fans and media will be hard on Fuller because of who he is, too, one of the highest-paid corners in the game, one these very Packers attempted to poach this offseason.

The Bears would then mount a time-consuming drive that resulted in a field goal, giving Chicago a 23-17 lead and leaving the Packers to drive the length of the field with just under three minutes left and no timeouts.
