Packers QB Aaron Rodgers leaves field on cart during season opener


He is the co-host of "Dickerson & Hood" on the ESPN Radio national network, and is heard in Chicago on ESPN 1000.

A lot of that first half success can be attributed to new Bears pass rusher Khalil Mack, who joined the team just eight days ago after a trade with the Oakland Raiders. Mack's touchdown gave them a 17-0 lead over their divisional rival.

At the 9:22 mark of the second quarter, Mack and Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris broke through the Packers offensive line and forced Rodgers to the ground.

The Packers confirmed at halftime that Rodgers has a knee injury and listed him a questionable to return for the second half.

The Green Bay Packers, a legitimate Super Bowl contender, almost suffered a devastating blow less than one half into their new season when Aaron Rodgers suffered a knee injury, left the game, and was questionable to return to the Packers' season opener against the Bears.

Rodgers appeared to suffer a lower-body injury after slipping down in the pocket and absorbing a sack.
