Aaron Rodgers comes back to amusement subsequent to leaving with knee damage
GREEN BAY, Wis. – Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned in the second from last quarter Sunday in the wake of agony knee damage in the primary half against the Bears.
Rodgers seemed to get harmed when Bears protective end Roy Robertson-Harris appeared to fall to Rodgers’ left side knee following a second-quarter sack.
Rodgers stood up, endeavored to put weight to his left side leg and after that disintegrated to the ground.
The Packers quarterback, at last, strolled off Lambeau Field under his own particular power.
After about 10 minutes in the sideline examination tent, the group’s restorative staff trucked him to the locker room halfway during that time quarter of the season opener against the Chicago Bears.
That is a similar knee in which Rodgers tore his ACL in secondary school, the damage that wasn’t precisely repaired until school.
As though the Packers’ home opener weren’t set for a sufficiently harsh begin before Rodgers’ damage, the offense was booed off the field only two minutes into the second quarter after a third straight punt.
Rodgers was 3-of-7 going for 13 yards and was sacked twice before leaving the amusement.
Previous Cleveland Browns starter DeShone Kizer, who went 0-15 as a tenderfoot last season, supplanted Rodgers with the Packers trailing 10-0.
Kizer’s initial two arrangement after Rodgers withdrew was terrible – both on account of the most up to date Bears safeguard, Khalil Mack. Mack finished Kizer’s first arrangement with a strip-sack, as he tore the ball out of the quarterback’s hands. At that point, he picked off a Kizer screen pass and returned it 27 yards for a touchdown that gave the Bears a 17-0 lead.
Kizer’s capture was his 23rd since the beginning of last season. No other quarterback has 20 capture attempts in that range, as indicated by ESPN Stats and Information.
The Packers exchanged Rodgers’ reinforcement last season, Brett Hundley, to the Seattle Seahawks last month for a 6th round pick. Hundley began nine amusements – and won just three – last season after Rodgers broke his correct collarbone.
In the primary quarter, Rodgers finished only one of four goes for 7 yards, his least fruitions in the main quarter since he neglected to finish a go in Week 17 of the 2014 season at the Detroit Lions.
