Rodgers was sacked by Bears defensive end Shea McClellin on a third-down play at the end of the Packers' first drive. Rodgers didn't stay down, and nothing seemed amiss. But the Packers trainers kept evaluating him on the sideline for the next few minutes, before he finally ran off to the locker room area for further tests.
