GREEN BAY–Aaron Rodgers will be the Packers’ starting quarterback on Sunday when the Packers play against the Bears at Soldier Field.
“We’re preparing for the Chicago Bears with Aaron Rodgers as our starting quarterback,” Coach Mike McCarthy said. “I would say he’s ready to play.”
Rodgers was listed by the Packers as a full participant in Thursday’s practice.
“We feel it’s time for Aaron to play,” McCarthy said. “We need to go down there and win this game as a team. This is a decision everyone was waiting for. We wanted to get this done on Tuesday.”
“I felt very good about Randall today,” McCarthy said, fueling optimism that Cobb will play for the first time since sustaining a leg injury in Baltimore on October 13.
The winner of Sunday’s game in Chicago between the Packers and the Bears will claim the NFC North title. Rodgers hasn’t played since sustaining a broken collarbone on Nov. 4 in a loss to the Bears at Lambeau Field.
“We’re talking about the best player in football. I feel good about it,” McCarthy said of Rodgers’ return.
