DeShone Kizer, who the Packers acquired via trade with the Cleveland Browns back in March, is the only other active quarterback on the roster.

After Going down to the turf and grasping his knee during the Pack's season opener against the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field, quarterback Aaron Rodgers headed to the team's medical tent. The Packers had announced at halftime that Rodgers was questionable to return.

After missing the playoffs for the first day since 2008 with a 7-9 record previous year, the Green Bay Packers believe they're destined for a return to the playoffs this season.

While Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers came out on the sideline for the second half. As of this writing, the Packers are trailing Chicago, 20-0.

Police also released an image of a counterfeit perfume bottle after tests found it contained a "significant amount" of Novichok . The same bottle was picked up by Charlie Rowley, whose girlfriend Dawn Sturgess died after being exposed to Novichok on June 30.


Rodgers went down awkwardly after being sacked by Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris. The lineman landed on Rodgers.

Rodgers then walked to the cart that took him up the Lambeau Field tunnel.

Both are expected to play around 20 to 30 snaps in Green Bay as the team works with caution, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.

According to Rob Demovsky of ESPN, Rodgers is now deemed questionable to return to the game, which is enough update to comfort the legion of anxious Packers fans who saw the quarterback getting carted into the locker just before the end of the first half.
