(TSX / STATS) -- The uncertainty about whether Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers would be ready to return this week was resolved Tuesday night when Rodgers announced on Instagram that he was medically cleared to play football.
That presumably means that Rodgers, sidelined the past two months due to a broken right collarbone, will play Sunday in a pivotal game against the Carolina Panthers.
Following a day of consultation with a medical team led by Pat McKenzie, the team physician, Rodgers posted on his Instagram account: "It's been a long road from that day to this, but I'm happy to say I've been medically cleared to return. Thanks for all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes over the past 8 weeks (heart) and a big thank you to Dr McKenzie and our incredible training staff. #riseagain"
