The Green Bay Packers 2018-19 season almost came to an end in the second quarter of last night's opener against the Chicago Bears.


After Aaron Rodgers was carted off the field with an apparent knee injury, it appeared as though the two-time NFL MVP was going to be absent for the majority of yet another season. But when he emerged later on in the same game, he was able to take the field and lead the Packers to a late-game comeback and one-point win over the Bears. 


Leaving the only question left to answer as to what extent will this injury hinder his ability to play going forward? 

Well, the only answer it looks like we're getting out of Packers camp and head coach Mike McCarthy today is a whole lot of nothing. Of course, Rodgers wants to play, but McCarthy isn't showing any of his cards on his readiness to play next week as now. 


Even though Rodgers looked like the best version of the quarterback we all know in the second half, knee injuries are always call for concern, especially starting from Week 1 of the 16-game season. 

Don't be surprised if this turns out to be a much bumpier road than most are expecting after that miraculous rebound and late-game heroics against the Bears on Sunday night.
