Packers | Aaron Rodgers won't be limited

The Green Bay Packers do not plan on limiting QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) in his first game back from a cracked collarbone in Week 17 against the Chicago Bears. "To me, that goes back to the decision," head coach Mike McCarthy said. "If we were thinking that way, the decision wouldn't be what it is. The decision's been made. Obviously it was a thorough one. And it's time for Aaron to play. We're going to cut him loose and we're going to go play. We're going to play to win."
As a Rodgers owner considering starting him, this has to help make you more confident going with him. He could put up midrange QB1 numbers against the Bears. As Tyler Dunne suggests, though, the Packers will likely lean heavily on the run against a team that hasn't been able to stop a ground attack all season.
