Aaron Rodgers leaves game against Saints, returns

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left Sunday’s game midway though the third quarter after New Orleans Saints defender Malcolm Jenkins grabbed his face mask and poked his eye.

Rodgers completed an eye test and began warming up. He was replaced by Graham Harrell and the Packers fumbled the football immediately after.

Harrell’s fumbled led to a Saints touchdown pass from Drew Brees to Joseph Morgan. It was Morgan’s first career touchdown.

Rogers did return for the next series but threw an interception.
