Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers has insisted that he's closing in on a return to action, reports CBSSports

As the Packers prepare for a play-off push, they will be desperate to see Rodgers back fit as they need to win their remaining two fixtures. 

Rodgers is set to practice today in a bid to prove his fitness ahead of the Packers' clash with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday December 22.

Speaking on his weekly radio show with ESPN Milwaukee's Jason J. Wilde, Rodgers said: "Last week I felt more like myself. I think I was closer.

"It's Tuesday and I haven't practiced this week. So we're sitting here with another four or five days of rest. We'll see how I feel tomorrow.

"Again, this is maybe not what people want to hear. This is how you have to go about the process. it's a combination of a lot of things and obviously there are a lot of strong opinions about what should happen.

"But the organization will do what's best by me and I at least want to make it a conversation."

So, Rodgers seems desperate to play in the crucial fixtures for the Packers, but must ultimately be cleared for participation.

The Packers will be hoping to take their form of the last two fixtures into the remaining games after securing victories against the Falcons and the Cowboys in their last outings. 

And now two victories against the Steelers and the Chicago Bears will give the Packers a home match in the playoffs, but will Rodgers be playing his part?
