Aaron Rodgers is back.
The Green Bay Packers quarterback posted on his Instagram page late Tuesday night that he's been cleared to return after breaking his right collarbone in a loss to the Minnesota Vikings in Week 6. Per NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport, he will start Sunday against the Carolina Panthers.
"It's been a long road from that day to this, but I'm happy to say I've been medically cleared to return," Rodgers wrote. "Thanks for all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes over the past 8 weeks and a big thank you to Dr McKenzie and our incredible training staff. #riseagain"
The story went on to say that Rapoport said one of the big factors in the decision was Rodgers' will to play, and how hard he worked to be back and ready by Week 15. Those of you who kept Rodgers or picked him up off the wire and stashed him could now be heavily rewarded in your fantasy playoffs. We have Rodgers ranked ninth among our QBs this week.
