Super Bowl-winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers will suit up for the Green Bay Packers when the team travels to Chicago on Sunday for a must-win game against the Bears.

Rodgers has missed the last seven games with a fractured collarbone, which he suffered during a Nov. 4 loss to Chicago.

The elite quarterback's return couldn't come at a better time as the Packers (7-7-1) can win the NFC North with a win over the Bears (8-7) on Sunday. Green Bay went 2-4-1 without Rodgers starting at quarterback.

Packers fans have been anxiously waiting his return, but he had been only practicing in a limited fashion in recent weeks. However, Rodgers was listed as a full participant in practice on Thursday.

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy later confirmed Fox Sports Wisconsin's initial report claiming that Rodgers will start Sunday against the Bears.
