Aaron Rodgers rumors have the Green Bay Packers quarterback ready to return. These Aaron Rodgers rumors were confirmed by Packers coach Mike McCarthy in an announcement that should make fans of the team very happy. According to a report from ESPN on Thursday (Dec. 26), he will start against the Chicago Bears on Sunday (Dec. 29).
This Week 17 game will decide the NFC North champion, with the winner likely becoming the No. 4 seed in the 2014 NFC Playoffs. The loser is going to go home very disappointed, especially with how close they will have been to the postseason. Coming into the game, the Packers hold a 7-7-1 record and the Bears are at 8-7.
Coincidentally, the former NFL MVP hasn't played since he broke his collarbone back on Nov. 4 in the first meeting of the season between the two teams. He has missed seven games since then, with the team posting a 2-4-1 record in that time. Now these Aaron Rodgers rumors will come as great news for the die-hard fans that haven't given up hope on the postseason.
Game time for the Green Bay Packers vs. Chicago Bears on Sunday (Dec. 29) is 4:25 p.m. ET on Fox.
