The Packers travel to Chicago to play the Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday. Kickoff is set for 3:25 p.m.
GREEN BAY, Wis. (WEAU) -- Packers head coach Mike McCarthy announced Thursday afternoon that Aaron Rodgers will be the starting quarterback Sunday when Green Bay travels to Chicago to take on the Bears with the NFC North division title on the line. Rodgers was a "full participant" at practice today, and according to McCarthy, the team was told earlier this morning that Rodgers will be under center against the Bears.
McCarthy says Rodgers took the "first-team snaps" at practice today and looked good. McCarthy added he's excited for Aaron to play Sunday and his veteran quarterback who his coach called the "best player in football."
The Packers head coach went on to say that his team needs to rally around their starting quarterback, that "it's not all on Aaron to win this football game, our defense needs to play well, our special teams needs to play well..."
Rodgers has not played since breaking his collarbone against the Bears at Lambeau Field back on November 4th. And while #12 has practiced for the past month, he had not been ""medically cleared to play" until today.
Another injury update, wide receiver Randall Cobb practiced again today with McCarthy saying that he "felt better about how Cobb looked than he did before practice."
