Twitter reacts to Aaron Rodgers' injury

Aaron Rodgers carted off with injury just two quarters into Packers' season opener

Sure enough, Rodgers took the field with the offense for their first series. Kicker Mason Crosby drilled the extra point to put the Packers ahead for good, 24-23.

Green Bay prevailed, 24-23, thanks to an epic comeback engineered by Aaron Rodgers.

My God, how could anybody hate Aaron Rodgers?

Rodgers demonstrated once more than having an otherworldly quarterback is more important than anything else.

"But we countered", Rodgers said. He was held later in the drive on a play that forced the Packers to punt.

"And when our offense is dominating, the defense got to dominate", he added. Even more agonizing for the Bears, cornerback Kyle Fuller just had dropped what would have been an outcome-sealing interception. Rodgers went for 286 yards, three touchdowns and no picks.

"Obviously, that's a tough one for us".

The Bears had a lot of opportunities, Matt Nagy reminded us in his postgame interview. But the offense was stalled again on fourth down as a sack-fumble put an end to a nightmare game that started like a dream. He was limited to seven games in 2017 because of a collarbone injury.

Mack was everywhere, it seemed, as the Bears knocked Rodgers from the game.

"I love the game", Mack said. "That is the only thing on my mind". The lineman landed on Rodgers. "We just have to go back and watch the tape now to see how we get a quicker start". Minutes later, he walked back on to the field and threw warm-up passes with backup DeShone Kizer before the start of the second half.

His right arm was just fine.

Rodgers injured his knee midway through the second quarter after going down on a sack.

It was Rodgers' first regular-season game back at Lambeau Field since last September against the Bears.

"It" was more of the same from Rodgers against the Bears. This time around, the Bears let Cobb make a catch in the middle of the field and split the defense for the go-ahead score.

Mitchell Trubisky was 23 of 35 for 171 yards. They marched 86 yards on 10 plays, capped by Trubisky's two-yard touchdown run. "You get down to the red zone and you come up with a bunch of field goals and it feels OK because we got some points and we are taking care of the football".

Packers: Host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday.
