As if we needed any more proof, Aaron Rodgers confirmed once again that he is indeed superhuman.
With AP Photos.Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has returned for the Green Bay Packers in the third quarter after being taken off the field on a cart because of a knee injury.
In addition to the young players growing into roles, the Packers still must answer this: Can they rush the passer adequately? But the Packers' season outlook remains bright after he threw three touchdowns and tied the largest comeback in his National Football League career.
Kizer fumbled the ball, which was recovered by outside linebacker Khalil Mack on a strip sack, to end his first possession.
Rodgers was carted to the locker room for an evaluation after he was crumped up on a sack.
That comeback was highlighted by a 75-yard touchdown pass to Randall Cobb that put the Packers up for good.

After Rodgers left the game in the first half, football fans were anxious he might be gone for the game, if not weeks. Kizer fumbled the ball on his first possession, and it was recovered by Bears linebacker Khalil Mack on a strip sack.
However, Rodgers' knee turned out to not be a severe injury, and after the Bears orchestrated a field goal drive to go up 20-0 to open the second half, out trotted Rodgers to lead the Packers offense. Until then, relive tonight's madness with the top reactions of the night by way of your trusty Twitter community. But Rodgers was ruthlessly effective in the second half, while the Bears' offense sputtered until a 14-play, 61-yard drive - that, crucially, ended with a Cody Parkey field goal when Mitch Trubisky couldn't convert a third-and-one in the red zone. The ovation from the crowd lifts you up, gives the energy, the momentum of the game, and you feel the tide turning.
"I ain't seen nothing like that", said veteran tight end Marcedes Lewis, who signed with the Packers in the offseason.
"Walking out (for) the second half", Rodgers said when asked when he knew the Packers would win.
Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers is fully healthy after playing in just seven games last season. Updates with Rodgers returning.
Note: I'm a Packers fan and was ecstatic when the Bears opted to kick instead of go for it on fourth-and-2. "You can't have that, so we've got to put more pressure on the quarterback". "We knew they were going to do some insane stuff to keep it simple; tackle over, lineman out at wide receiver spots, three guys in the backfield", Green Bay linebacker Blake Martinez said post-game.
