After suffering a knee injury, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers came back into the game against the Bears in the first series of the second half to lead Green Bay to a 24–23 win and the fifth-best comeback in franchise history.
He jogged out of the tunnel and started warming up at the end of halftime. With the Packers down 20–0 in the third quarter, Rodgers went 20–for–30 with 286 yards and three touchdowns for the insane win.
Rodgers was hurt after a sack in the second quarter and walked off the field with the team's medical staff, and was later carted off to the locker room before his return. He was sacked by Roy Robertson-Harris on a third-down situation in the second quarter. He appeared to fall on his left knee.
The quarterback originally walked off the field with some assistance, and looked to have trouble putting weight on his leg.
After getting it checked out in the medical tent, Rodgers was taken to the locker room. DeShone Kizer briefly came in for the Packers at quarterback.
The 34-year-old Rodgers was carted into the locker room last October during a Week 6 game against the Vikings after injuring his shoulder and underwent surgery. He came back in Week 15 but was placed back on injured reserve after the Packers missed the playoffs.
Rodgers broke his collarbone in 2013, missing seven games before returning in the final week of the season.
