But after Aaron Rodgers missed the final two series of the first half with a knee injury, Green Bay's star quarterback hobbled back onto the field in the third quarter and rallied Green Bay to a stunning 24-23 win at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers went down awkwardly after being sacked by Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (CBS 58) - The Green Bay Packers have confirmed that Aaron Rodgers has a knee injury and his return is questionable.

It was Rodgers' first regular-season game home game since last September 28 against the Bears. But still, on one leg, he was still Aaron Rodgers and he put together a few magnificent drives to get Green Bay back in the game.

Our own Shalise Manza Young touched on Khalil Mack's exceptional game, noting that his first-half performance may have resulted in something we've never seen before. But the offense was stalled again on fourth down as a sack-fumble put an end to a nightmare game that started like a dream. Khalil Mack was on fire, the offense was moving at will and went into the half with a 17-0 lead.

But I think I can do it. "Right now he's been doing OK in practice, so he should be there", Crennel said. The Texans gave them fits all four quarters but, the Patriots escaped with a 36-33 victory.

Davante Adams then found a connection with Rodgers, taking a pass and going 51 yards downfield to set up his later touchdown reception from 12 yards out to make it 20-17. He had pressure in the backfield on a play in which quarterback Aaron Rodgers hurt his left knee.

A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears. Undoubtedly, they are busy preparing for their game against the Rams on Monday night.

"Oh I'm playing next week", he replied. The Bears were more than willing to pay the price, but they also got a little back, too.

The bottom line is after one of the best halves of football the Bears have played in decades, the Packers were able to reduce the offense to nothing but Jordan Howard in the second half, and the defense simply wore out.

Trubisky has also scored on a 2-yard run. "Making big-time plays", Nagy said.
