Packers' McCarthy says team awaiting more info on Rodgers

Aaron Rodgers carted off with injury just two quarters into Packers' season opener Refocused, NFL Week 1: Green Bay Packers 24, Chicago Bears 23 | NFL Analysis

He proceeded to lead the Packers to a field goal, before throwing three touchdown passes to earn the NFC North victory. There were problems stopping the run, mobile quarterbacks still seem to pick up first downs easily and the only turnover generated was in the game's final seconds.

He was good to go.

"It's hard (to put into words)", Rodgers told NBC after the game.

Not again: Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers continued his domination of the Bears.

The Packers overcame a 20-point deficit to defeat the Bears 24-23. The Packers were down by 17 points entering the fourth and final frame, and Rodgers simply took over.

For Rodgers, this was special.

Later Rodgers said his playing status would be more clear later in the week. Gruden, as he gets ready for his opener, sat down with his old colleagues at ESPN and, unsurprisingly, pulled the "he didn't want to be here" card when asked about Mack and why the dominant defensive end was dealt.

Boyle, an undrafted rookie who played at CT (where he threw one touchdown and 13 interceptions in three seasons) and Eastern Kentucky (11 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in his lone season), was a long shot to make the Packers when training camp opened.

When Bears fans closed their eyes and imagined the ideal opening to the Matt Nagy era, they might have imagined a few things. They reached the playoffs for eight straight seasons before going 7-9 last season, when Rodgers missed nine games because of a broken collarbone.

Mack almost stole the show.

On a third-and-goal situation, Mack broke past a wideout then the right tackle and stripped the ball from quarterback DeShone Kizer. New Oakland Raiders head coach Jon Gruden is already off to a controversial start after signing a massive $100 million dollar contract for 10 years.




In the first half of his first outing in blue and orange, Mack recorded a strip sack, ran back a pick-six to push the Bears' lead and added another sack on top of all that.

Zimmer said he hadn't seen Rodgers' postgame declaration, cracking, "I don't have a TV, so I didn't watch it". "But you want to win these games". The lineman landed on Rodgers.

He initially tried to get up, then went back down, and was attended to by trainers.

"His performance speaks for itself", McCarthy said.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy needs more information on the extent of Aaron Rodgers' knee injury to determine the quarterback's availability for next week's game against Minnesota.

"I was a guy that had numerous contract disputes with the teams I was in, and I did stay away but I did it the smart way, I sat on the bike and rode the bike so I was actually in the facility so I wasn't getting fined", says BBC American football expert Osi Umenyiora. Instead, he called a pass play in which tight end Dion Sims was the only option leaking out the back side, and the Packers stuffed Sims for no gain after he was knocked off his route.

Trubisky made a valiant effort, going 23-of-35 passing for 171 yards.

Chiefs receiver Tyreek Hill had an incredible day against the Chargers and became just the third man ever to have a 50+ yard touchdown catch and 90+ yard punt return touchdown.

It turned out to be the only offensive touchdown the Bears would score all night. After two first downs, Rodgers had eclipsed his total first-half stats.

Bears: Host the Seattle Seahawks next Monday.
