Rodgers injuried in loss to BearsSubmitted: 11/04/2013
Story By Joe Dufek

GREEN BAY - The Packers looked for their 7th straight victory against the Bears on Monday night.

The Bears had to go to backup quarterback Josh McCown.
Wide Receiver James Jones was back with Green Bay from a knee injury.

So things looked great for the Pack.

But in the first quarter - Green Bay lost their QB.

Aaron Rodgers suffered an apparent collarbone injury in his left shoulder.

That's his non-throwing shoulder. It happened on a sack on the opening drive of the game. Rodgers did not return.

Seneca Wallace replaced Rodgers.

He finished 11-19 for 114 yards passing. He had one interception and was sacked four times.

Trailing at halftime, Packers running back Eddie Lacy busted a 56 yard run to the Bears 1. He scored the touchdown on the next play. Lacy finished with 150 rushing yards and a touchdown.

Packers led 20-17, when McCown connected with Alshon Jeffery for the touchdown. Bears never trailed after that.

Chicago won 27-20. The Packers, Bears, and the Detroit Lions are tied for first place in the NFC North at (5-3). They each have (2-1) records in the division.
