Aaron Rodgers injury: Packers quarterback leaves game vs. Eagles

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had to leave Sunday Night Football against the Eagles with an apparently oblique injury.

The Packers’ worries in 2022 got a bit heavier on Sunday night as quarterback Aaron Rodgers exited the game against the Eagles with an injury.

Rodgers was already playing through a thumb injury. At one in Philadelphia, he took a painful blow to the ribs and appeared visibly pained.

After leaving for the locker room, he returned to the sideline out of uniform. What had been a diagnosis of “questionable” to return turned pretty quickly towards “out.”

Aaron Rodgers injury update: Packers QB exits with oblique injury, won’t return

With Rodgers out, the Packers will turn to back up Jordan Love. Some Green Bay fans may not be too upset about that. Given his thumb injury, sometimes poor play and the team’s general struggles, many have called for Love to get a chance to quarterback the team for the time being.

Now Love will get his chance to impress. Or he’ll show the team and fans that he doesn’t represent the franchise’s future. Either way, there is a potential silver lining to Rodgers having to come out.

Unfortunately for Love, his opportunity to make an impact was limited. The Eagles led 37-23 by the time he entered the game.
