Aaron Rodgers returns to game after leaving with knee injury

10:42 PM ET

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned in the third quarter Sunday after suffering a knee injury in the first half against the Bears.

Rodgers appeared to get injured when Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris seemed to fall on Rodgers’ left knee after a second-quarter sack.

Rodgers stood up, tried to put weight on his left leg and then crumbled to the ground.

The Packers quarterback finally walked off Lambeau Field under his own power.

After nearly 10 minutes in the sideline examination tent, the team’s medical staff carted him to the locker room midway through the second quarter of the season opener against the Chicago Bears.

That’s the same knee in which Rodgers tore his ACL in high school, an injury that wasn’t surgically repaired until college.

As if the Packers’ home opener weren’t off to a rough enough start before Rodgers’ injury, the offense was booed off the field just two minutes into the second quarter after a third straight punt.

Rodgers was 3-of-7 passing for 13 yards and was sacked twice before leaving the game.
