Aaron Rodgers Injury: Packers QB Sustains Concussion In Season Finale

Adjust Comment Print

The Green Bay Packers confirmed the diagnosis early in the fourth quarter, trailing 24-0 to the Detroit Lions. The Packers will be picking 12th in the 2019 NFL Draft, in addition to owning an additional first-round pick acquired in a trade with the New Orleans Saints during Round One of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Per multiple sources, former Colts and Lions coach Jim Caldwell has interviewed for the coaching vacancy in Green Bay.

The NFL broadcast booth will have a very entertaining presence in the final week of the regular season. Reports were that Rodgers was being evaluated for a concussion. Last year, Green Bay won just seven games and failed to qualify for the postseason, largely due to the fact that Rodgers missed most of the season with a broken collarbone.

Detroit scored again as time wound down until intermission on a 13-yard gallop by Zach Zenner with 1:06 showing on the clock.

Prater received a direct snap then threw it down the left side of the field to Levine Toilolo for an eight-yard touchdown pass.

The two-time MVP was sacked on his first dropback of the game, taking a big hit from Lions linebacker Jarrad Davis and losing his helmet during the play.
