Metrodome. Mandatory Credit: Bruce Kluckhohn-USA TODAY SportsGreen Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with a left shoulder injury on the first drive of the game against the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football.

Seneca Wallace has since taken over – and threw an interception on his second pass of the game to Bears defensive end Julius Peppers.

Just because Rodgers is out, doesn’t mean the Packers are out of it.  Their running game has been surprisingly stellar this season, ranking 7th in the NFL at 141.4 yards per game.

After the Wallace pick, Green Bay got the ball back after a punt block and James Starks took it to the house on this 32-yard run:

That was Starks’ first run of the game, and it was a dandy.  Rookie Eddie Lacy leads all rushers with 10 carries for 59 yards.

Wallace in relief of Rodgers has thrown 4 passes – and completed, well 4 if you count the interception – for 22 yards.

Josh McCown has completed 10 of 15 passes for 151 yards, including a 23-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Brandon Marshall in the first quarter.

As of now, the Chicago Bears lead the Green Bay Packers 14-10 with 7 minutes remaining before halftime on Monday Night Football.
