(CBS) The waiting game is over.

Packers head coach Mike McCarthy confirmed Thursday that Aaron Rodgers will indeed be his starting quarterback as the Packers take on the Bears at Soldier Field on Sunday.

The winner of Sunday’s game earns the opportunity to represent the NFC North in the playoffs.

Rodgers hasn’t played since he broke his collarbone against the Bears on Nov. 4.

Without Rodgers, the Packers are 2-5-1 under a collection of quarterbacks this season. He’s been practicing on a limited basis for the past four weeks.
