First comments from Mike McCarthy after Packers loss

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Nov 4, 2013

Packers coach MIke McCarthy gave what he could so far on Aaron Rodgers' condition and the Packers' overall performance in their 27-20 loss to the Chicago Bears.

On Rodgers' condition:
"We don't have an exact diagnosis...training table tomorrow."

On how the offense responded, and didn't respond after Rodgers' departure:
"It's a challenge.  I thought the run game definitely responded. The pass game did not.  We had some protection issues and we didn't throw it very well."

On defensive failures:
"Tackling was poor."

On the overall performance:
"I thought our guys responded, some ups and downs.  I thought they came out strong in the 3rd qurater, but they didn't play very well down the stretch."
