  • Aaron Rodgers returns to game after being carted to Packers locker room with knee injury

Perhaps McKenzie is also looking at college tape of players he can take with one of the first round picks the Raiders received in exchange for their Pro Bowl defender.

Well the dream was just that for a few hours Sunday night, then it turned into a nightmare.

Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers left the Packers' Sunday night game against the visiting Chicago Bears five minutes into the second quarter due to a left leg injury.

Here's a look at what was said about the 2016 Defensive Player of the Year's first game with his new team. He broke Prince Amukamara's ankles and scored from 12 yards out after making a short catch, faking inside and breaking it back outside, but only after he completed a spinning catch for 51 yards three plays earlier.

A defense reinforced with pass-rushing linebacker Khalil Mack has forced the Green Bay Packers to punt on their first two drives.

After that, it was Mack and the defense that took center stage.

Rodgers was hurt in the second quarter of Sunday's game after being sacked, limping to the sidelines before being carted to the locker room. Green Bay had scoring plays of 39 and 75 yards in the second half. A recovered fumble. An interception returned for a touchdown.

If ever there was a reminder that fans should appreciate the game's largest figures while they can, Tuesday night at the U.S. Open was it. "It was a very tough start and then I tried to stay in the match in some way in that second set and I did".

The Bears led 20-0 at one point and their defence dominated until the second half. He left the field on a cart, and a hush fell over Lambeau Field.

The Packers were booed off the field at halftime.

The Packers had a 3rd-and-9 play from their 3 when several Bears converged on Rodgers in the pocket.

Rodgers threw two quick incompletions, but on third down, he found Randall Cobb wide open in the middle of the field.

According to ESPN reporter Rob Demovsky, Rodgers had trouble putting weight on his left leg.

The Packers' worst nightmare appeared to be starting all over again.
