NFL league news: Aaron Rodgers returns Sunday to lead Packers

Just as the Green Bay Packers look to win the NFC North on Sunday with a win over their division rival Chicago Bears, starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers is set to return to the field according to a report by Fox Sports on Dec. 26.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed the news earlier on Thursday as the team finds itself in a position to make the playoffs even without Rodgers who went down in a loss to the Bears back on Nov. 4. The fractured collarbone suffered by Aaron Rodgers has caused him to miss the last seven games.

The team won just two games without their star quarterback, going 2-4-1 without him but struggles by the Bears and the Detroit Lines has kept the Packers alive. If not for the chance to clinch a playoff spot, perhaps Rodgers would've been sidelined for the remainder of the season. But the magnitude of the game has deemed the Pro-Bowl quarterback healthy enough to play.

Aaron Rodgers has been practicing with the first team the last few weeks and should be ready to lead the team once again when they take on the Bears at Soldier Field for the division title.
