Report: Brett Hundley played with hamstring injury during Packers' win over Bears

Not only did quarterback Brett Hundley rally his Green Bay Packers team late in the game to earn the first victory in his starting tenure in place of Aaron Rodgers, he did it as a member of the running wounded.

The Packers announced after Green Bay's 23-16 win over the Chicago Bears that Hundley hurt his  hamstring during the victory.

There was no specific word on the severity of the injury, how it happened or when it happened.

There were numerous instances when Hundley had opportunities to run for long yardage with receivers covered, but looked to be running half-speed or chose to throw the ball away.

Even with the injury, Hundley went 18-25 for 212 yards and a touchdown while running twice for 16 yards.

Two deep clutch throws to Davante Adams in the 4th quarter - one a touchdown, the second a throw that put the Packers in scoring range late in the game - helped clinch the win.
