Aaron Rodgers was carted off the field in Sunday night's game against the Chicago Bears after landing awkwardly on his knee, a potentially huge blow for a team that has traditionally struggled without their franchise quarterback.

But according to NBC's Michele Tafoya, the Packers quarterback is going to try to come back tonight.

Rodgers went down awkwardly after being sacked by Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris.

Nadal said he did not sense a return of his chronic knee tendinitis on Thursday when he practised, or warming up before the match. But the Argentine swept through the tiebreaker, wrapping up the opener after 69 minutes of impressive shot-making.

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

The Bears secondary played well most of the night but breakdowns in the second half doomed them. Several Packers players agreed this was the loudest they've ever heard the crowd at Lambeau Field. He finished 20 of 30 for 286 yards, including 17 of 23 for 273 yards in the second half. Rodgers and Adams also connected on a 51-yard pass on the drive.

Allison completed a terrific reception on Rodgers' first touchdown pass, hauling in the ideal throw in the corner of the end zone with Kyle Fuller trailing in coverage.

Bears kicker Cody Parkey made a 26-yard field goal to open the second quarter with a 10-0 Bears lead. He left the field on a cart, and a hush fell over Lambeau Field. Green Bay fans have to hope that Rogers stays on the field and doesn't suffer an early broken collarbone injury like he did last season.

On a third-down play, Rodgers dropped back to throw but quickly hit the deck with the Bears' pass rushers closing in. "All I got to say is I got to catch it". It's hard to imagine Gruden looking even more out of touch, but if Mack keeps playing this way things are going to get even worse for the egotistical coach.

Trailing 20-3, Rodgers and the Packers faced a second-and-two in Chicago territory. Trubisky called his own number on an option and scored the first touchdown of the Nagy era on a two-yard run to make it 7-0.
