This time, the Green Bay Packers didn’t have to wait long before getting their franchise quarterback back in action.
Aaron Rodgers returned to the Packers’ game Sunday against the Chicago Bears in the third quarter after he was carted off with a left knee injury.
Rodgers was originally listed as questionable to return. He was replaced by DeShone Kizer before rejoining Green Bay’s offense in the unit’s first series of the third quarter.
After taking a sack from Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris in the second quarter, Rodgers appeared to limp before going to the medical tent for further evaluation.
Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone midway through the 2017 and played in just seven games. In August, he signed a four-year, $134 million extension that made him the highest-paid player in the NFL.
