Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) announced on Tuesday night that he's been medically cleared. That presumably means he'll start this weekend's game against the Panthers. Rodgers has been practicing for a couple of weeks now and been impressing teammates and media members. The last time he returned from a broken collarbone -- albeit on his non-throwing side -- he went for 318 yards with 2 TDs and 2 INTs against the Bears in his 1st game back. He comes with a bit lower floor than usual this week, but Rodgers sits safely inside QB1 territory in our rankings. His return is also a big boost to WR Jordy Nelson.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers impressed both beat writers and teammates on Wednesday in his 1st official practice since breaking his collarbone. "He looks like himself," WR Jordy Nelson said. Rodgers still needs to get full medical clearance, but he continues to trend toward returning for next weekend's game against the Panthers.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is expected to practice when he's 1st eligible on Saturday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This doesn't yet guarantee that Rodgers will play again this season, though. Rapoport notes that Green Bay will need to still be in the playoff race to bring Rodgers back, which would likely require wins the next 2 weeks vs. Tampa Bay and Cleveland. Rodgers' collarbone will also need to be healed enough to get the green light from what Rapoport calls the Packers' "notoriously conservative doctors." We'll continue to track Rodgers' progress. He's 1st eligible to play Week 15.

Packers QB Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) took some snaps from the training staff during Wednesday's practice, according to the Packer Report's Bill Huber. It was Rodgers' 1st time on the practice since field breaking his collarbone a month ago. HC Mike McCarthy said Thursday that Rodgers is making "really good progress and "moving right along." It sounds like he has a shot to return when 1st eligible in Week 15.

Doctors have told Packers QB Aaron Rodgers that he might be able to throw in 6 weeks, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. That timeline -- which would have him throwing by around Week 13 -- would clearly give Rodgers a chance to return before the end of the regular season. Whether to keep him around on your fantasy roster will have to be a personal decision, however, and depends on the usefulness of who you'd replace him with and how much you need that roster spot. If you have any IR slot, Rodgers is a no-brainer stash there. If Rodgers is designated to return, he wouldn't be allowed to play before Week 15. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the team isn't expecting him to return.
