Rodgers (foot) appears to have a strong chance of returning on Sunday versus the Chargers based on the Bucs' release of Mike James on Tuesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Auman is basically reading the tea leaves with his tweet, but the conclusion certainly seems reasonable. Rodgers had put in an unrestricted practice session last Friday, so his arrow has been trending upward with respect to a return. Assuming he suffers no setbacks during forthcoming Week 13 preparations, Rodgers looks destined to suit up as Doug Martin's primary backup against San Diego come Sunday.
