One of the worst seasons for the Green Bay Packers in recent memory is almost over, but it's increasingly looking like the team won't be going out with a bang. Case in point: Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was sidelined during today's game against the Detroit Lions.

The Packers announced on their official Twitter account that Rodgers was being evaluated for a concussion.

He was 3-of-5 for 26 yards and was sacked once before being sent to the sidelines.

Rodgers was replaced in the game by backup quarterback DeShone Kizer, but Kizer is having no better luck against the Detroit Lions.

The Packers are 6-8-1 on the season, and even with a win would still finish the season with a losing record.

It is the first time since 1991 that the Packers have had back-to-back losing records.

Aaron Rodgers, to his credit, has been his usual efficient self. He has 4,416 yards and 25 touchdowns passing, with only two interceptions - fewest among starters.

The Lions lead 14-0 with 2:00 remaining in the first half.
