NEW INFORMATION: Rodgers officially "out" for Sunday's game against Atlanta

The Packers host Atlanta at Lambeau Field Sunday at noon.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers will have to try to win their first game in more than a month without Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers (5-6-1) have ruled out their star quarterback for the game Sunday against the Atlanta Falcons. Rodgers hasn't played since he suffered a collarbone injury early in Green Bay's 27-20 loss to Chicago on Nov. 4.

The Packers spent the week preparing Matt Flynn to make a second straight start at quarterback.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WEAU) -- It'll be another week without Aaron Rodgers under center for the Packers.

On Friday afternoon, the team's website reported that he's officially listed as "out" for Sunday's game against Atlanta (3-9). That means QB Matt Flynn will make his second consecutive start for the Packers, who are 5-6-1. Head Coach Mike McCarthy tells Packers.com that he thought Flynn was "sharp" in practice on Friday, and that Rodgers is "frustrated."

Sunday will be the sixth straight game the team has been without Rodgers. He broke his collarbone during a home game against Chicago on November 4. The team has yet to win a game since the injury. Atlanta is coming off an overtime win over Buffalo in Toronto.
