Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy says quarterback Aaron Rodgers sprained his shoulder during Sunday's 30-21 loss to Tampa Bay but intends to play against Atlanta on Sunday. McCarthy said the Packers will have a better idea on Rodgers prognosis following practice on Wednesday. Rodgers and backup Matt Flynn are expected to share snaps in practice this week.
In other injury news, linebacker A.J. Hawk suffered a groin strain and his availability for Sunday's game is in question. So to is DT Cullen Jenkins who suffered a pectoral strain and may not be available against the Falcons this week.
