GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Quarterback Aaron Rodgers is looking forward to the anticipated returns of two of his Packers predecessors on Thanksgiving night.

Brett Favre's name and retired number will be unveiled inside the stadium at halftime of Green Bay's game against the Chicago Bears.

It's the completion of a season-long reconciliation between Favre and the franchise that he helped revived when he arrived in 1992.

The sides had a messy split in 2008. Favre was replaced by Rodgers, a first-round draft pick who was the backup for three years.

Rodgers said on Tuesday that there has been a good, proper healing process for everybody involved.

Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr is also expected to attend on Thursday. He is recovering from two strokes and a heart attack.



GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) Hall of Fame quarterback Bart Starr has been tossing the football again as he prepares to return to Lambeau Field for a special ceremony on Thanksgiving honoring another Green Bay Packers legend, Brett Favre.

Starr and his wife Cherry visited recently with WTMJ-TV's Lance Allan in Alabama where Number 15 has been working out at the gym in Birmingham three times a week and exceeding his trainer's expectations.

Starr is moving a little slower these days after two strokes and a heart attack, but he's on track to make the trip to Wisconsin a trip the Starrs say could be their last to Green Bay.

The Starrs have twice flown to Mexico to take a chance on two experimental stem cell treatments. They believe it has made a difference in Bart's recovery.

ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) The Big Ten's top performer on kickoffs, punt returns or both will receive the Rodgers-Dwight Return Specialist of the Year trophy beginning this season.

The conference on Tuesday announced the new award named in honor of former return specialists Johnny Rodgers of Nebraska and Tim Dwight of Iowa.

Rodgers and Dwight will be recognized Friday at the Iowa-Nebraska game in Lincoln, Nebraska. Rodgers was a two-time All-American who won the Heisman Trophy in 1972. Dwight was a two-time first-team All-American as a punt returner, earning consensus All-America honors in 1997.

The Big Ten also will expand its all-conference teams, adding a third team to first-team, second-team and honorable mention selections.
