Rodgers leaves game with injury
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was knocked out of Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.
Rodgers was hurt when he was sacked from behind by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin after scrambling right on third-and-8 at the Bears 9 with 12:38 to go in the first quarter. The injury was to his left shoulder.
A trainer looked at Rodgers’ upper body on the bench. Rodgers took a few tosses on the sideline, then was attended to again before running inside Lambeau Stadium for more evaluation.
Rodgers hasn’t missed a game because of injury since Dec. 19, 2010, when he had a concussion. Backup Seneca Wallace took over for Rodgers.
Also, right guard T.J. Lang left the game after halftime with a concussion. The Packers led 20-17 midway through the third quarter.
