Aaron Rodgers is good to go next week

Aaron Rodgers carted off with injury just two quarters into Packers' season opener

The Packers posted the second-largest comeback in franchise history at Lambeau Field, behind only a rally from 21 points down to beat New Orleans on September 17, 1989.

But Rodgers returned in the third quarter.

The Packers return to the practice field on Wednesday, when the first injury report for Week 2 is due.

The lead became 20-0 early in the second half but a hobbling Rodgers sparked a tremendous comeback as he threw three touchdown passes to pinch the game from their NFC North rivals.

On his Vikings debut, Kirk Cousins outshone Garoppolo, passing for 244 yards and two touchdowns, including a beautifully weighted 22-yard dime to Stefon Diggs in the second quarter.

"We just had a good feel, " Pires said.

NO. If we knew for sure that Marshawn Lynch would get a heavy workload, I would probably say Yes.

Coats said in a statement that speculation that he or his principal deputy wrote the piece was "patently false". Vice President Mike Pence also denied writing the opinion piece.


Backup DeShone Kizer took over behind center while Rodgers was being evaluated in the locker room in the second quarter.

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy on Monday said no decision had been made on whether or not Rodgers would take the field to face the Minnesota Vikings. QB Mitchell Trubisky then found WR Taylor Gabriel for a 31-yard completion to the Green Bay 25, and on third-and-2, TE Trey Burton hauled in a 15-yard pass to make it first-and-goal.

Later Rodgers said his playing status would be more clear later in the week. Trubisky completed 4 of 4 passes for 54 yards on the drive. They reached the playoffs for eight straight seasons before going 7-9 last season, when Rodgers missed nine games because of a broken collarbone.

"As an offense, we came out and we competed well", Robinson said.

Inspired by Rodgers' toughness, the defense stepped up and held Chicago to six points and 134 total yards of offense in the second half.

There is a very delicate balance for McCarthy to find in play-calling, and I don't want to make it sound obvious or easy.

We now know that the Bears stole Mack, but it's important he gets into regular game shape to continue and help this defense, and especially the secondary behind him that struggled mightily Sunday night.
