Aaron Rodgers Medically Cleared to Return

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers confirmed on his
Instagram account Tuesday night that he’s been medically cleared to return to
play in Sunday’s game at Carolina. The announcement comes after a day of
discussion with medical personnel, led by team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie. Head
coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Rodgers had undergone tests to determine
how his surgically repaired right collarbone had healed and that the decision
was in an “evaluation stage”. Rodgers broke the collarbone on October 15th
against Minnesota on a hit by Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. Backup
quarterback Brett Hundley took his place, winning three of the Packers seven
games in that span to keep the team in the playoff hunt with a 7-6 mark. The
Packers and Panthers kickoff at Noon on Sunday, pregame coverage begins at 10am
on KFIZ.
