The Packers made the playoffs largely because they got Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb back just when they needed them. Rodgers looked solid coming off an eight-week recovery from a collarbone fracture. B/R's Will Carroll explains what it took to get them back and what to expect come playoff time.
The hard work of these players and the medical staff, in spite of ill-informed scrutiny, all paid off in safe, effective returns. While both players remain at risk of recurrences, especially Rodgers each and every time he takes a hit, both look to be big parts of what the Packers hope is a long playoff run.
