Gov. Walker declares Dec. 12 Aaron Rodgers Day in Wisconsin

Posted at 6:43 PM, Dec 12, 2017

Gov. Scott Walker declared Dec. 12 "Aaron Rodgers Day," he announced in a tweet Tuesday.

"Today is 12/12- Aaron Rodgers Day," the Wisconsin Governor posted along with a video of Rodgers celebrating a touchdown with the Packer's signature Championship belt.

Rodgers broke his collarbone Oct. 15 after a hit from Minnesota Vikings' linebacker Anthony Barr slammed him into the turf on Week 6 and underwent surgery on Oct. 19.

Rodgers has been spotted throwing at practice, and early projections put a possible comeback on Dec. 17 against the Carolina Panthers. 

However, some doctors have said the bone isn't fully healed, and are concerned about Rodger's long-term health.
