While there is never a good time for the Packers to lose Aaron Rodgers to an injury, it hurts even more coming in Week 1 against a divisional opponent at a time when the NFC North looks like one of the most competitive divisions in the league. It took a super-hero performance from Rodgers, an underrated effort from the defense and big-time production from the top three receivers to get it done Sunday night at Lambeau Field.
But Fuller became the latest to learn a lesson that so many have learned through Rodgers' career.
However, Rodgers' knee turned out to not be a severe injury, and after the Bears orchestrated a field goal drive to go up 20-0 to open the second half, out trotted Rodgers to lead the Packers offense.
Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left his team's National Football League opener against the Chicago Bears with an apparent leg injury.

CNN also reported that the Thursday night incident was not the only shooting in which Guyger has been involved while on the force. Jean's mother, Allison, suggested in an interview on Friday that her son might still be alive if he was white.
It was only the beginning. He noted that Rodgers landed with his body weight outside of his leg, meaning a more serious injury like an ACL tear appeared unlikely.
The NFL world had its eye on a few things Sunday, one of which was what Khalil Mack would do with the Bears. While you can't expect a team to score every time it gets the ball, the Bears' failure to sustain drives and run out the clock allowed the Packers - and Rodgers - enough time to complete their unlikely comeback.
A Chicago defence featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter. Toomer, a fifth-year player, was signed by the Packers was last week after being cut by the San Francisco 49ers. After two incompletions, Rodgers threw a short pass to Cobb, who did the rest.
But according to NBC's Michele Tafoya, the Packers quarterback is going to try to come back tonight. Green Bay had scoring plays of 39 and 75 yards in the second half. The Bears came out and earned their first 10-point lead over the Packers since 2007, with Bears quarterback Mitchell Trubisky looking sharp. The 2018 season opener will feature two of the highest paid players in the league.
Rodgers said he would undergo additional tests on Monday, but "as long as there are no major issues, I'll keep playing".
