Green Bay, WI (NNCNOW.com) --- Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers left Monday night's game in the first quarter with a reported left shoulder injury and did not return, the first of many steps in a 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.

Rodgers reappeared on the Packers' sideline in the second half, wearing sweats and no discernible sling on his left arm. Following the game, head coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers' status moving forward is unknown and that the team will run more tests on Tuesday.

Seneca Wallace came on in relief of Rodgers and was underwhelming, completing 11-of-19 passes for 114 yards and an interception. Chicago's Josh McCown, playing for an injured Jay Cutler, finished the game 22-of-41 passing for 272 yards and two scores.

The Packers relied more heavily on a running game than ever before this season, with Eddy Lacy and James Starks combining for 190 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

Chicago used an 18-play drive that used up nearly nine minutes of game clock in the fourth quarter to help seal the victory, which is the Bears' first in this rivalry since September 2010.
