The Green Bay Packers got big news on Tuesday night as their All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers announced that he has been medically cleared to play. Head coach Mike McCarthy will undoubtedly give Rodgers his starting job back.

Brett Hundley filled in for Rodgers, while he was away injured. Hundley led the Packers with a come-from-behind win over the woeful Cleveland Browns on Sunday that saved their season.

“It’s been a long road from that ay to this, but I’m happy to say I’ve been medically cleared to return,” Rodgers said. “Thanks for all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes over the past 8 weeks.”

The Packers, who are 7-6 and tied with the Detroit Lions for second in the NFC North, faces the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. The Panthers are tied with the New Orleans Saints, leading the NFC South with a 9-4 record.

Without Rodgers, they have been treading water. Now, in the final few games of the season, Rodgers has a chance to potentially help his team to the playoffs.

In six games, Rodgers has gone 128 of 193 for 1,385 passing yards, including three 300-plus yardage games. He has 13 touchdowns and three interceptions.
