The Green Bay Packers are a championship-contending team with Aaron Rodgers on the field. The NFL is a better league when Aaron Rodgers plays.
With that in mind, what transpired in Sunday night’s game at Lambeau had the NFL world on edge. Aaron Rodgers took a big hit in the second quarter, and in the aftermath a Chicago defender fell on his left leg.

Rodgers was attended to on the field before limping off. Then after spending some time in the medical tent, the cart was called over and he was taken to the locker room.
Many on Twitter were distraught over this development, especially after Rodgers missed so much time last year with his collarbone injury.

Aaron Rodgers face said it all. Looking around at the crowd almost like it was the last time he'd see it for awhile. Let's hope not and he was just in a little temporary pain. #GoPackGo

Fortunately by video, no risk for re-injury to ACL there on that.
But I thought defensive players could no longer fall with their body weight on QBs without penalty? https://t.co/IT43Mn6SdW

Aaron Rodgers has been carted off of the field. The look on his face seemed awfully similar to last October in Minneapolis.
The NFL is better when Aaron Rodgers is out there. Let’s hope it’s not as bad as we all fear. #Packers
