Aaron Rodgers holds right hand, wrist after big strip sack from Derek Barnett
Aaron Rodgers was holding his right hand and wrist area after losing a fumble on a strip sack by Derek Barnett just before halftime of “Thursday Night Football” between his Green Bay Packers and the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Packers had a 2nd-and-6 at their 29 with two minutes left in the half as they trailed 14-13 to the Eagles. Barnett blew around Marcedes Lewis and came up on an unsuspecting Rodgers and swatted the ball out of the quarterback’s hand. Rodgers was grabbing his right hand after being swatted.

Rodgers was later shown throwing on the sidelines, indicating any potential injury was not serious. Rodgers returned to the field after the Eagles scored a touchdown to go up 21-13 following the fumble recovery.
Rodgers was 13/16 for 180 yards prior to losing the fumble, which helped the Eagles extend their lead from one to eight points.
