Aaron Rodgers to try to come back

Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers gets away from Chicago Bears' Akiem Hicks during the first half of an NFL football game Sunday Sept. 9 2018 in Green Bay Wis Aaron Rodgers returns to game after being carted to Packers locker room with knee injury

This was enough to keep the door open for Aaron Rodgers.

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left his team's National Football League opener against the Chicago Bears with an apparent leg injury. A game in which the Bears dominated the first 30 minutes was ruthlessly turned on its head by Rodgers, who returned for the second half after leaving the game with a knee injury in the second quarter.

Aaron Rodgers heard the applause after walking out of the stadium tunnel and back on to the field. What happened next might go down in Packers' lore as the "Cart Comeback" game.

Rodgers was in obvious pain after taking a sack in the second quarter. Again, it looked pretty grim - until it didn't. He ran 64 yards after the catch for a 75-yard go-ahead touchdown with 2:13 left.

After the game, NBC's Michele Tafoya asked Rodgers how confident he was that he'd be ready to go against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2.

With limited mobility, Rodgers operated a no-huddle offence in the second half that kept him in the pocket. "I just can't tell you how proud I am with him", coach Mike McCarthy said.

There's little the three-time Pro-Bowl linebacker didn't do.

Parked big rigs lined the roads surrounding the facility. "It's been ridiculously congested". "A lot of the truckers are upset". Evacuations orders have been issued for the fire on both sides of I-5 north, from Lakehead, to the Shasta-Siskiyou County line.


Nagy and Vic Fangio deserve credit for calling a masterful first half that put the Packers all the way back against the wall.

Rodgers signed a four-year, $134-million contract extension on August 29. But as he showed against the Packers, it was well worth it.

A sack. A forced fumble.

The Packers had a 3rd-and-9 play from their 3 when several Bears converged on Rodgers in the pocket.

Aaron Rodgers is back and the Green Bay Packers are finally on the scoreboard against the Chicago Bears.

Meanwhile, Rodgers had only one first-quarter completion, which tied for his fewest in the opening frame since 2014 in Week 17 where he had zero against the Lions. It marks the fifth-straight time the Bears have lost to the Packers and the fifth-straight opening game loss for the team. Jordan Howard averaged over five yards per carry, but saw 15 hand offs in the game.
