As Mike McCarthy stated in his press conference this afternoon, Aaron Rodgers has been medically cleared and has been named the starter of this weekends winner take all, NFC North showdown vs the Chicago Bears.
Reports were starting to surface this afternoon that multipe sources were stating that Rodgers was to be cleared but nothing was official until McCarthy’s 1:15 pm presser. Additionally, during the practice portion that media is open to watching, he was seen taking all the first team reps. He had previously been taking some snaps with the first team that past few weeks but still wasn’t cleared until this weeks scan.
Check back later on tonight for more analysis on this and how it changes this weekends NFC North match up vs the Bears! Go Pack!
