Robert Tonyan, Kylin Hill and Kingsley Keke injured in Packers-Cardinals game
Already without three wide receivers, the Green Bay Packers weren't exactly in a position for quarterback Aaron Rodgers to lose another pass-catching threat on offense.
But that's exactly what happened Thursday night against the Arizona Cardinals.
Rodgers and tight end Robert Tonyan connected on a 33-yard reception before Tonyan went down clutching his right knee 2:31 with 2:31 left in the third quarter.
Tonyan limped off the field under his own power and went into the medical tent. The Packers announced he was questionable to return but it was determined he had suffered a serious knee injury.
Teammate Kylin Hill also suffered a serious knee injury.
The rookie running back fielded a kickoff and returned it to the 9-yard line with 6:19 remaining in the third quarter before being hit directly on the knee by the helmet of Cardinals running back Jonathan Ward. Both players fell to the ground in obvious pain and were carted off the field after a scary collision.
Hill's injury will sideline him for the rest of the season, the NFL Network reported.
Ward was being evaluated for a neck injury and a concussion.
Packers defensive end Kingsley Keke was also in concussion protocol.
