Rodgers returns from injury, Packers beat Bears 24-23

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears and is considered questionable to return after suffering a knee injury.

Mack followed by intercepting a pass that Kizer dumped over the middle while trying to avoid a sack by Roy Robertson-Harris.

The first half of the Bears-Packers game has been an absolute disaster for Jon Gruden and the Raiders. He caught fire when he returned to the game, throwing three touchdowns and leading the Packers to an exciting win.

The larger story here, though, is the second-half adjustment made by Mike McCarthy and Rodgers to mitigate the Bears' pass rush.

DeShone Kizer took over under center for the Packers. Rodgers grabbed at his leg, tried to get back up, and went back down again before he was finally able to limp off the field and into the blue medical tent on the sidelines.

Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers is fully healthy after playing in just seven games last season.

Chicago Bears new outside linebacker Khalil Mack is expected to play in a limited fashion, as is their rookie signing Roquan Smith, ESPN reports. He brought the Green Bay Packers back with him. He says that's the knee Rodgers tore his ACL on in high school and had repaired in college. He was added to the injury report about two hours before the game.

The play that gave the Packers a lead for the first time all game came on a third-and-10 situation. I'll bet Jon Gruden and his coaching staff stayed disciplined and mainly steered away from the televisions tonight, but the players were watching.

Trubisky completed 8 of 9 passes for 99 yards to five different receivers on the two scoring drives, including passes of 33 yards to Allen Robinson II and 31 yards to Taylor Gabriel.

"You know we talked about finishing and we didn't do that", Nagy said.
