Aaron Rodgers will start at quarterback for the Packers Sunday vs. the Dolphins after suffering a concussion a week ago. Rodgers passed all of the league-required tests to return to the field following the head injury.

The news was not as promising for OLB Clay Matthews, who leads the NFL with 8.5 sacks on the season. He is inactive with a left hamstring injury.

The way we see it

The Packers may be the most banged-up team in the league, with Matthews joining TE Jermichael Finley (right knee), LB Nick Barnett (left wrist), NT Ryan Pickett (ankle) and RB Ryan Grant (right ankle) among those watching Packers-Dolphins from the Lambeau Field sideline. At least Rodgers will play, giving Green Bay a chance to improve to 4-2.

Fantasy Spin

As long as Rodgers is healthy, he should be in your fantasy lineup. Missing Finley hurts, but Green Bay's offense still should rack up big yards and points vs. the Dolphins.
