The one player the Green Bay Packers probably can’t afford to lose left Monday night’s 27:20 loss to the Chicago Bears with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers landed on his left shoulder when he was sacked by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin on the game’s opening series.
Packers team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie spent several minutes examining Rodgers on the bench before taking him to the locker room for further examination.
Following the game, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said the team needs to run more tests and did not give specifics on the injury.
“Just had a chance to speak with Aaron; he has a shoulder injury” – McCarthy said. “They want to run more tests. They don’t have an exact diagnosis.”
“No timeline, no exact diagnosis” – McCarthy said.
Rodgers also said he is slated for more tests, telling ESPN Wisconsin’s Jason Wilde via text: “We’re getting some tests (Tuesday).”
