The Green Bay Packers need to beat the Chicago Bears his Sunday in order to win the NFC North division and make the playoffs. They will also will need their best offensive weapon in order to make that happen, and without All-Pro quarterback Aaron Rodgers, they’ll be hard-pressed to win a do-or-die game Sunday on the road against a division rival.

As it turns out, Rodgers will play vs. the Bears, according to head coach Mike McCarthy. Rogers was able to practice and take reps with the first-team today.

Rodgers said he felt great at practice last week, and though it seemed that Rodgers might have a chance to play in Week 16, it was later reported that his availability was always in doubt.

He hasn’t  played since fracturing his left collarbone against the Bears at Lambeau Field on Nov. 4, has missed the past seven games. Including the loss to the Bears when Rodgers was injured at the end of the Packers’ opening series, the Packers have gone 2-5-1 with three different starters at quarterback.
