  • Aaron Rodgers Just Had His All Time Memorable Moment Yet Again

He was announced as questionable to return with a knee injury, but with the Packers first possession of the second half, Rodgers took to the field again to lead Green Bay on a drive for a field goal for their first points of the game.

However, coming out of the halftime break, Michele Tafoya reported during the telecast that Rodgers would try to play in the second half.

After he did so, Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris sacked him and landed right on Rodgers' left knee.

Rodgers initially remained down on the field where he was attended to by trainers before walking gingerly off the field and entering the medical tent.

Next week, the Bears will host the Seahawks on Monday Night Football while the Packers will welcome the Vikings to Lambeau Field.

Rodgers' post-injury final totals were a stunning 17-of-23 for 273 yards and three touchdowns, including one emphatic chuck out of bounds to run out the final seconds. He was seen shaking his head when he finally made it onto the cart headed for the locker room. Suffice to say, allowing a 39-yard touchdown to formerly undrafted Geronimo Allison, the Packers' first touchdown Sunday night, and whiffing on the pick fall well below them.

It was Rodgers' first regular-season home game since September 28 against the Bears. He left the field on a cart, and a hush fell over Lambeau Field.

Rodgers, who missed nine games last season because of a broken collarbone, recently signed a record four-year, $134 million extension with $100 million in guarantees.

"It was going to have to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half", Rodgers said. The Packers were trailing 20-0.

I'll bet Jon Gruden and his coaching staff stayed disciplined and mainly steered away from the televisions tonight, but the players were watching. Shoot there was a lot of other plays in that game that could've affected the outcome. Trubisky called his own number on an option and scored the first touchdown of the Nagy era on a two-yard run to make it 7-0.
