The 12-year veteran made his return to the field last week against the Carolina Panthers after breaking his collarbone back in week six against the Minnesota Vikings. Rodgers threw for 290 yards (26 for 45), three touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Packers seventh loss of the season.

With Rodgers being added to the IR, the Packers signed quarterback Joe Callahan to their 53-man roster.
