LANDOVER, MD. --- The Green Bay Packers suffered a late rally by the Washington Redskins on Sunday, but may have lost something more important than the Week Five matchup.

Packers officials revealed after the game that quarterback Aaron Rodgers suffered a concussion during overtime of Sunday's 16-13 loss.

There was no indication of whether Rodgers would miss any time with the injury, but the NFL has imposed very strict guidelines recently for players returning from concussions.

The Packers also lost Donald Lee, Jermichael Finley, Ryan Pickett, Clay Matthews and Derrick Martin to injuries during Sunday's game.

The Redskins rallied from 13-3 down in the fourth quarter to tie the game at 13. Green Bay kicker Mason Crosby had a shot to win the game with under 10 seconds left, but his kick bounced off the left upright.

Rodgers was injured in OT on the same play he threw an interception, leading to Graham Gano's game-winning 33-yard field goal.

The Packers are back home next Sunday, when they will host the Miami Dolphins at Lambeau Field.
