Rodgers is on the injury report due to a toe issue and has not been given a game status designation.

League protocols required him to stay home for ten days, and Saturday was the earliest he could return.

Rodgers still attended team meetings and game-planning virtually from his home in Green Bay.

The Packers host Seattle at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

Kickoff is scheduled for 3:25 p.m. CT on WISC-TV.

The Seahawks have had their own issues at quarterback, with starter and Wisconsin alumnus Russell Wilson missing multiple games with a hand injury.

Wilson is also set to return to play this week.
