Aaron Rodgers still waiting for feeling to return to 'a couple of fingers'

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers' left hand didn't feel bad enough that he needed to come out of the game, but perhaps that's because he couldn't feel it at all.

And after Thursday night's 17-13 loss to the Chicago Bears, Rodgers still didn't have all the feeling back in it.

"I lost feeling in my hand for a good portion of the game there in the third quarter [and] fourth quarter," Rodgers said. "I'm waiting to get it back in a couple of fingers, but it's OK in the first three."

It was a hit to Rodgers' left elbow that caused the problem. It happened when Bears linebacker Lamarr Houston tackled Rodgers after a poor shotgun snap from fill-in center JC Tretter killed the Packers' first drive of the third quarter.

Rodgers went to the sideline holding his left wrist, prompting backup quarterback Scott Tolzien to start to warm up. However, Rodgers did not miss any plays.

"That's the old funny bone," Rodgers said. "Not so funny."

After that, Rodgers had to use his right hand on all hand-offs -- even those to the right, for which he would normally use his left hand. Instead, he was forced to hand off back-handed with his right hand on such plays.

"I work on that in practice sometimes for a situation like that," Rodgers said.

Rodgers said he did not expect it to be a lingering problem.

"It's my left hand; I'll be all right," said Rodgers, who completed just 22 of 43 passes for 202 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The touchdown was the 250th of his career, making him the fastest to reach the milestone.

Rodgers said his bigger concern was trying to get the passing game fixed. The Packers managed just 13 points despite a second-straight 100-yard rushing game from Eddie Lacy.

"We're just on different pages," Rodgers said of himself and his receivers.
