NFL injuries: Rodgers to start, AP will wait and see

Two of the biggest stars in the NFL are on opposite ends of the spectrum heading into their final regular season games of the 2013 season.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has missed every game since breaking his collarbone Nov. 4 against Chicago, will start for Green Bay Sunday.

Including their game against Chicago in which Rodgers threw just two passes, Green Bay is 2-5-1 without their starting QB and fill-ins have been subpar in his absence.

The Sunday contest will be a chance at revenge for Rodgers, as he faces the team that broke his collarbone, Chicago, in a battle for the division title.

While Rodgers has missed the last seven-plus games, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has missed just one start the last two seasons, and said today that he will attempt to practice but that he is unsure of his status for Sunday's game against Detroit.

While Peterson will attempt to practice, fellow running back Toby Gerhart and three others were unable to go Thursday.

More later.
