Bears, Packers return from lightning delay

A short time ago, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that it was found Montgomery had suffered some broken ribs and would not be returning to the game on Thursday night against the rival Bears. A lot of attention will be placed on the field before the game even starts as the team has asked fans to lock arms throughout the stadium in an effort to show unity and draw attention to race relations in America.

Players, coaches, and staff will link arms during the national anthem.

Rodgers tweeted, "To those waiting on the #rodgerstickethunt, I gave my tickets this week to police officers from the Green Bay Area". "Join us this Thursday by locking arms with whoever you're with, stranger or loved one, wherever you are - intertwined and included - in this moment of unification".

However, quarterback Aaron Rodgers will have a hard night without his starting offensive tackles.

"This is about equality", Rodgers said earlier this week, according to We believe that in diversity there can be UNI-versity.

It drew the attention of President Donald Trump, who called for those players to be fired for disrespect.

The protests started after President Trump made comments at a rally in Alabama calling for National Football League owners to fire players who protest the anthem.

The Packers linked arms on one sideline, and the Bears did the same on the other. I think this spread would actually favor Green Bay even more if they were more impressive last week and the Bears were not as good.
