The agony of the Packers' 13-10 defeat in overtime to the Redskins Sunday was magnified with a Tweet by the Green Bay Press-Gazette reporting that QB Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion on his final offensive play of the game. Rodgers, who threw an interception to Redskins S LaRon Landry to set up the game-winning score on his final play, was not made available to the media after the game.
In addition to the Rodgers injury, four others Packers — TEs Jermichael Finley (knee) and Donald Lee (shoulder), DE Ryan Pickett (ankle) and OLB Clay Matthews (hamstring) — left the game with injuries.
The way we see it
It's way too early to jump to conclusions, but even if Rodgers' concussion was minor and he is available to play next week against the Dolphins, the 3-2 Packers are in a world of hurt. The carnage in Washington was preceded one week earlier by serious injuries to S Morgan Burnett (out for season) and MLB Nick Barnett in Green Bay's victory over the Lions.
