UNDATED (WSAU) Aaron Rodgers has been medically cleared for Sunday's Packers vs. Bears game. Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Rodger’s status after practice this afternoon. Team members were told about their starting quarterback before practice the morning. Rodgers took all of the snaps with the first-team offense at practice.
Rodgers has missed 7 consecutive games since being injured November 4th against the Bears at Lambeau Field. Since then the Packers have won twice, tied once, and lost four games. It’s been the longest injury of Rodger’s career, even though he’s had limited participation in practice for the last four week.
The winner of this Sunday’s Packers-Bears game will win the NFC North and will earn a playoff home-game next week.
The Bears last week suffered their worst loss of the season, a 54-11 rout at Philadelphia. Jay Culter, the Bear’s starting quarterback, is 1-6 lifetime against the Packers.
