Jon Gruden: 'Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here'

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

Rodgers held the back of his left knee in pain before being carted into the locker room.

At the half, the scoreboard read "Bears 17, Packers 0", and the return of Rodgers - for the season, much less the game - was in doubt. Defeating the Bears on a national stage in that fashion-with all those ups and downs-played out like a five-act work from Shakespeare. Trailing 20-0, he took over the game. He completed 20 of 30 passes for 286 yards and three touchdowns against the Bears.

We'll hear from Aaron Rodgers on Wednesday.

Mike McCarthy and the Green Bay Packers are notorious for keeping injury information close to the vest, so the latest update on Aaron Rodgers should surprise no one.

The airline said it would manage any claims on an individual basis. "No, our data is encrypted", he said. The head of British Airways Alex Cruz expressed regret for the incident and apologized to customers.

Saying that, back-up James Connor ran for 135 yards and scored two touchdowns so maybe Bell's plan will backfire if the Steelers feel they can get just as much production out of Connor - this story will run and run. Even with only one healthy knee, Rodgers insists he's playing next week. Staley said Monday that he's a good example for their younger players.

"It was going to have to take something really catastrophic injury-wise to keep me off the field in the second half", Rodgers said.

No one in green and gold is happy about Rodgers getting hurt, but it sure was nice to see him help his offensive line out a bit and deliver the ball on time.

"Obviously, Khalil Mack didn't want to play here", Gruden said.

Trump Salutes Kim for N.Korean Parade without Nuclear Missiles
North Korea has long used parades to display the strength of its military, having most recently held one of February of this year. The guide said Kim Jung Un "appreciates lovely women and wants North Korean women to be the most attractive of all".

The Bears settled for field goals after failing to convert on third-and-goal from the 3, third-and-nine at the 15 and third-and-two at the 14. Kizer was 18 of 34 for 179 yards that day, while also rushing for 18 yards and a touchdown on five carries.

He moved in and out of the pocket and escaped the wrath of the Packers' defense to extend drives in the first half.
