Aaron Rodgers will start for Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears


The health status of Aaron Rodgers leading up to the NFC North elimination game with the Chicago Bears from Chicago’s Soldier Field on Sunday afternoon has been the hot topic all week around Green Pay and Chicago and it appears he is going to start after taking all the first-team snaps in Thursday’s practice.

UPDATE 1:40 p.m. CT:

Rodgers has been out since the Nov. 4 game when he broke his collarbone against the Bears when Shea McClellin hurt the former league MVP. In his absence the Packers have started Senece Wallace, Scott Tolzien and for the past five weeks Matt Flynn has done yeoman’s work.

The Packers have been kept afloat in the NFC North with the failures of the Detroit Lions and the Bears dealing with their own injury at quarterback, but as it should be the division will be decided on the final Sunday in the regular season featuring the NFL’s best rivalry.

And with Rodgers back on the field.
