Packers Lose Rodgers, Game To Bears

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Josh McCown won the battle of the backups after Aaron Rodgers was hurt, getting lots of help from Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte to give the Chicago Bears a 27-20 win over the Green Bay Packers on Monday night.

The victory snapped Green Bay's six-game winning streak over its NFC North rival. But of far larger concern is the health of Rodgers, who hurt his left, non-throwing shoulder when he was sacked on the game's first series by Shea McClellin. Rodgers took a few warm-up throws but, after being examined by medical staff, he ran into the Green Bay locker room. He wasn't seen again until midway through the third quarter.

With Rodgers out, the Bears (5-3) took advantage of the Packers (5-3). Marshall had seven catches for 107 yards and a touchdown, and Forte ran for 125 yards and another score.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been knocked out of Monday night's game against the Chicago Bears with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.

Rodgers was hurt when he was sacked from behind by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin after scrambling right on third-and-8 at the Bears 9 with 12:38 to go in the first quarter. The injury was to his left shoulder.

A trainer looked at Rodgers' upper body on the bench. Rodgers took a few tosses on the sideline, then was attended to again before running inside Lambeau Stadium for more evaluation.

Rodgers hasn't missed a game because of injury since Dec. 19, 2010, when he had a concussion.

Backup Seneca Wallace took over for Rodgers. The Bears had a 14-10 lead midway through the second quarter.
