Aaron Returns to Packers Line-Up to Face duh-Bears!

(December 26, 2013) --- Aaron Rodgers is back.And because of his return, the Packers-Bears game has been moved to a 4:25pm (ET) kick-off this Sunday.
Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy made it official on Thursday, announcing the quarterback will return from a seven-game absence Sunday when the team meets the Chicago Bears in a matchup that will decide the NFC North.

The word came shortly after Rodgers took first-team reps in the portion of practice open to the media. It was a change in protocol from recent weeks, where Matt Flynn worked with the first team as Rodgers looked on.

Rodgers has been sidelined since suffering a broken collarbone in a Nov. 4 loss to the Bears. Green Bay has leaned on its medical staff in determining Rodgers' return, a stance that led to public frustration from the quarterback, coach and fan base.  The Packers went just 2-4-1 without the 2011 MVP and have remained alive in their division largely thanks to the failings of their rivals.

Though rust is a fair concern, there's no understating how important the star quarterback's return is to a Packers team built around his greatness. A healthy Rodgers gives the Packers a puncher's chance against any NFC contender.

That starts with the Bears, who can't be thrilled about Thursday's news.
