One of the NFL's best players is back in action. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been cleared after breaking his collarbone in Week 6.

Rodgers went down during the Packers' October 15 game at the rival Minnesota Vikings, a 23-10 loss.

The Packers were 4-1 entering the game, but have gone 3-5 since the injury, with Brett Hundley under center.

At 7-6, the Packers are lurking in the playoff race, and if they can run the table, they could steal a Wild Card bid. Tonight, Rodgers announced that he has been medically cleared to play.

It is unclear whether he'll return to the starting lineup on Sunday at the Carolina Panthers, but it feels like a pretty good bet. After that, Green Bay has division games against the Vikings at home and at the Detroit Lions. All three games come against playoff contenders.

It's a tough road, but Rodgers is one of, if not the best quarterback in the NFL. If he's healthy and playing his game, a playoff run is on the table.
