For the second time this season, Aaron Rodgers is recovering from a concussion following a Green Bay loss.
The Packers lost their quarterback late in the second quarter Sunday against Detroit, shortly after Rodgers was hit on back-to-back plays. He was slow getting up after being hit by Amari Spievey and Landon Johnson at the end of an 18-yard scramble. Green Bay took a timeout, then Rodgers was sacked on the next play.

Rodgers stayed in for the rest of the drive before being replaced by Matt Flynn. Detroit went on to win 7-3.
"He was a little groggy after those two plays, and the medical staff and Aaron decided it was in his best interest not to go back in," coach Mike McCarthy said. "That's not my call, and I don't know any specifics."
Rodgers was not made available to reporters afterward, and he was not in the locker room when it was open to the media, so his status for next weekend's game at New England is unclear.
Matt Flynn would start if Rodgers can't go next week. It would be a huge blow for the Packers.
