Rodgers Hurt as Bears Stuff Packers 27-20
(GREEN BAY, Wis.) — Josh McCown threw for two touchdown passes as the Chicago Bears topped the Green Bay Packers 27-20 on Monday night, earning a rare victory at Lambeau Field.
The Packers lost starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a shoulder injury in the first quarter. He was sacked by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin on the first series of the game and was taken back into the locker room. He did not return.
“He has a shoulder injury,” Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. “They want to run more tests. They don’t have an exact diagnosis. We’ll have more information, probably tomorrow.”
Backup Seneca Wallace entered the game for Rodgers and threw for 114 yards and an interception. Rookie running back Eddie Lacy shouldered the load offensively for the Packers, (5-3) rushing for 150 yards and a touchdown.
Matt Forte rushed for 125 yards and a score to help the Bears pull into a three-way tie with the Packers and Detroit Lions atop the NFC North. They all sit at 5-3 through the season’s first nine weeks.
