Packers Rodgers' Has Right Shoulder Sprain

Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says quarterback Aaron Rodgers sprained his shoulder but intends to play against Atlanta on Sunday.

McCarthy says Rodgers intends to play, but he will have a better idea if that's possible after Wednesday's practice. The Packers will monitor Rodgers' progress in practice and prepare rookie backup Matt Flynn to start if needed.

Rodgers was injured during Sunday's 30-21 loss at Tampa Bay, but returned to the game. McCarthy says medical tests revealed no major structural damage.
