Superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers went down with what appeared to be a severe knee injury in the season-opening win over the Chicago Bears in Week 1. Despite limping off the field and being carted to the locker room, Rodgers returned and led Green Bay on an incredible come-from-behind win that will go down as one of the best performances of his NFL career.

Heading into Week 2, there was a lot of uncertainty about whether Rodgers would be able to suit up and play in another crucial divisional game against the Minnesota Vikings. Fortunately for the Packers, Rodgers was able to get under center, but his injury is something that would keep most players out a considerable amount of time, according to NFL insider Jay Glazer.

With Rodgers at quarterback, the Packers are without a doubt a legitimate Super Bowl title contender in the NFC. The veteran gunslinger brings a completely different dynamic to the position which few players in the league can do making him essential to the team's success.

The real question moving forward for the Packers is whether Rodgers' knee can hold up moving forward. The team won't have their bye week until Week 7 with the competition continuing to be tough in Week 3 with the team set to face the Washington Redskins before taking on the lowly Buffalo Bills in Week 4.

As long as the Packers' offensive line can provide some protection for Rodgers, the perennial Pro Bowler might be able to continue to battle through the injury while keeping Green Bay in the hunt in the NFC.
