Green Bay Packers Injuries to Aaron Jones and Quay Walker in Week 1

Linebacker Quay Walker made a big play as he intercepted the Bears quarterback, Justin Fields, in the final quarter. Walker was hit by a Bears offensive lineman when he reached the end zone and was later put into concussion protocol.
