On Thursday night, the Green Bay Packers hosted the Philadelphia Eagles in what has turned into an early "must-win" for Carson Wentz and the 1-2 Eagles.

The game took an unfortunate turn early in the first quarter when Eagles defensive lineman Derek Barnett hit Packers running back Jamaal Williams in very illegal fashion.

Williams was carted off the field and taken to a local medical facility for further testing. However, the Packers announced Williams had feeling in his extremities.

Unfortunately for the Packers, the injuries didn't stop there.

Star quarterback Aaron Rodgers dropped back for a pass late in the first half and was hit from behind. On the play, Rodgers' hand/wrist area took the brunt of the hit.

After the play, Rodgers attempted to shake out his wrist.

Losing Rodgers would be a huge blow to the Packers offense.

During the 2018 season, Rodgers dealt with a knee injury that hampered him for the majority of the year.

Rodgers re-entered the game after the sack, right before the end of the first half. He's one of the toughest in the game, and he's not coming out any time soon.

However, this situation is something to monitor moving forward.

Stay tuned for the latest.
