Bears quarterback Brian Hoyer broke his left arm in the second quarter Thursday night, Bears coach John Fox told CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson.

The Packers lead, 13-10, in the third quarter after an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass to Davante Adams. The Bears took a 10-6 lead less than a minute into the second half after rookie pass rusher Leonard Floyd sacked Aaron Rodgers in the end zone, then recovered Rodgers’ fumble.

It was the Bears’ first defensive touchdown in 35 games. Floyd has two sacks on the night.

It was 6-3, Packers, at halftime. Hoyer was replaced by Matt Barkley in the second quarter after landing awkwardly when he was hit by both Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers on the Packers while releasing a pass.

Bears guard Kyle Long is questionable to return due to an arm injury. Packers rookie running back Don Jackson is also out with a hand injury, leaving wide receiver Ty Montgomery as the Packers’ top option at running back. Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson limped off early in the third quarter.
