Chad Clifton Injury Caused By John Kuhn's Knee; T.J. Lang In At Tackle

Green Bay Packers OT Chad Clifton made it to the sideline with some difficulty after taking a knee to the back of the head during QB Aaron Rodgers’ touchdown run. FB John Kuhn’s knee, in fact, which is a very potent knee indeed. Clifton is questionable to return.

Clifton was monitored by Green Bay’s medical staff on the sideline, getting a heating pad to the side of his neck for what’s being called a stinger. If it’s a concussion he’ll have to come out, but the NFL doesn’t have such rules for stingers.

On the play in question Rodgers conducted a fake to Kuhn, who dove up the middle and over Clifton, making contact on the way.

The Packers defense forced Chicago to punt, and second-year man T.J. Lang is in at tackle. Bears DE Julius Peppers looks pretty excited about all this.
