Aaron Rodgers Injury: QB leaves game after being poked in the eye

Benny Sieu-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

When Aaron Rodgers went down it was on Graham Harrell to do one simple thing. That didn't go so well

Driving deep in New Orleans' territory, the Green Bay Packers were threatening the end zone when Aaron Rodgers rolled out right looking for a receiver, only to be greeted with a facemask from safety Malcolm Jenkins. It wasn't just a penalty, as Rodgers sustained an eye injury that took him out for one play, and that's all it took to change the game.

In his stead it was Graham Harrell who was asked to step in and play caretaker. He was asked to do one simple thing– hand the ball off the Cedric Benson, and get the heck off the field; hopefully in time for Rodgers to return from his injury. That, well, that didn't go so well.

Tripping over the feet of center Jeff Saturday, Harrell bumbled the ball, botched the hand-off, and turned it over. What's worse is that the New Orleans Saints just completed a huge touchdown pass, and are now in the lead. The eye troubles for Rodgers may be continuing, as he just threw an interception to Patrick Robinson while looking for Jordy Nelson.

Ladies and gentlemen, we present Graham Harrell. a quarterback in the National Football League. Sir, you better discount double check yourself before you wreck yourself... and the entire team.
