Aaron Rodgers leaves game with potential concussion
Aaron Rodgers’ season may come to an end a bit early after suffering a potential concussion against the Detroit Lions.
Rodgers left the game early in the second quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, and was replaced by backup DeShone Kizer a little less than midway through the quarter.

Rodgers had been just 3-of-5 for 26 yards before departing.
The Packers were down 14-0 when Rodgers left the field, and they have nothing to play for. With all that in mind, it may be that the Packers simply opt against bringing him back. While the quarterback himself won’t like it, there’s no reason to risk further injury in a meaningless game at the end of a lost season.
