Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has left the game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday with an apparent shoulder injury. Rodgers landed hard on his throwing shoulder while being sacked in the first quarter.

The Packers are 4-1 and a clear frontrunner in the NFC, but mainly (if not totally) because of Rodgers. He missed seven games in 2013 and Green Bay went 2-5-1 when he didn’t start or when he missed the majority of the game. He leads the NFL in touchdown passes this year with 13 but was also sacked a league-high 19 times before today, so protection has been an issue.
Backup Brett Hundley is now in the game against the Vikings. Hundley was a fifth round pick out of UCLA in 2015 and he is 3-of-11 with an interception in his career thus far. Rodgers was 2-of-4 for 18 yards prior to the injury that sent him out.
