Packers' Aaron Rodgers returns after knee injury

Dam Aaron Rodgers with the quick grab to the knee did not look good.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers left Green Bay's Sunday night game against the visiting Chicago Bears in the second quarter due to a left leg injury, but he returned to action after halftime and led the Packers to a 24-23 comeback win.

All-Pro pass rusher Khalil Mack dominated the first half for the Bears in his debut for Chicago.

Rodgers went down 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.

The Packers' defence, in new co-ordinator Mike Pettine's first game, held the Bears to two field goals in the second half.

The 2018 NFL football season's first full day concludes with a huge NFC North battle between the Chicago Bears and Green Packers on NBC Sunday Night Football.

Florence strengthens into hurricane; could become Cat 3 by Monday
Henry McMaster declared a state of emergency Saturday to give his state time to prepare for the possible arrival of the storm . The hurricane center predicted between nine and 13 named storms this season, four to seven of which would be hurricanes.

Cobb was the beneficiary of a heavier reliance on the short passing game while Rodgers nursed a left knee injury.

But as Packers fans feared the worst, Rodgers made a surprising return to the field in the second half.

After Rodgers left the game in the first half, football fans were anxious he might be gone for the game, if not weeks.

Whether the Packers are being a bit reckless in letting Rodgers back into a game in which the Packers have been unable to protect him is debatable, but we can all agree it's a great sign that Rodgers is deemed healthy enough to play. Packers backup quarterback DeShone Kizer entered the game with 6:44 to play in the second quarter.

Rodgers had ACL surgery on his left knee while in college. On the next drive, the quarterback churned up 60 yards in nine plays as Cody Parkey finished the drive with a field goal to make it 10-0.

Trubisky completed 8 of 9 passes for 99 yards to five different receivers on the two scoring drives, including passes of 33 yards to Allen Robinson II and 31 yards to Taylor Gabriel. He caught fire when he returned to the game, throwing three touchdowns and leading the Packers to an exciting win.
