At 8:05 Thursday morning, Packers coach Mike McCarthy announced during a team meeting that Rodgers would return for Sunday's game, which will determine the NFC North champion.

McCarthy's announcement ended weeks of speculation about whether Rodgers would return at all after breaking his collarbone Nov. 4 in this season's first meeting with the Bears.

Rodgers was a full participant in practice Thursday for the first time since he broke his left collarbone on the opening series of the 27-20 loss to the Bears last month. Despite going 2-4-1 in the seven games that the former league MVP was sidelined, the Packers (7-7-1) can win the NFC North by beating the Bears (8-7) on Sunday.
