Aaron Rodgers bruises right arm
Aaron Rodgers would leave Sunday's game to injury, after being sacked for a safety by James Harrison late in the first quarter. Rodgers sustained a bruise to his right arm. Mike McCarthy said Rodgers would’ve remained in the game had it been the regular season.
“Into the second quarter was the plan. Aaron got hit on the sack but it was nothing that he couldn’t play in the game,” McCarthy said.
The real focus was on the loss of WR Jordy Nelson to an ACL injury, but the Packers were taking no chances with Rodgers. He should have no issues for Week 1 since McCarthy said he would have returned had the game counted in the standings.
