Aaron Rodgers Heads to Locker Room with Left Shoulder Injury

New, comments

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers injured his non-throwing shoulder and was taken to the locker room.

The Packers finished their first drive with points, but they might have lost their most indispensible player.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers took a hard hit on a 3rd and goal play in which he landed hard on his left shoulder. Rodgers' wincing was immediately obvious following the play. Team doctor Pat McKenzie checked out the shoulder on the sideline, and after a few practice throws Rodgers headed to the locker room.

If he is unable to take the field, Seneca Wallace will take his first regular season snaps as a Packer.

More information is sure to come. Stay tuned.
