Aaron Rodgers announced on Instagram Tuesday night that doctors have medically cleared him to return to the field for the Green Bay Packers.
On Monday, Mike McCarthy said Rodgers underwent tests to determine how much his surgically repaired right collarbone had healed.
"It's been a long road from that day to this, but I'm happy to say I've been medically cleared to return. Thanks for all the love, support, prayers, and well wishes over the past 8 weeks and a big thank you to Dr McKenzie and our incredible training staff," Rodgers wrote.
The Packers will face the Carolina Panthers this weekend. At 7-6, they remain in the NFC playoff picture.
