Aaron Rodgers is practicing, but there’s no guarantee that he plans to play on Sunday when the Falcons come to town.
There were rumors that the Packers were going to shut Rodgers down for the rest of the season, but that does not seem to be the case. The Packers are still not out of the playoff hunt, so they may still want to wait as long as they can to see if he can play.
Even if Rodgers wants to play, the medical staff will not risk the chance of Rodgers getting hurt again. For now, Matt Flynn will take the first team snaps in practice and the Packers will have to play the waiting game with this tricky situation with Rodgers.
Mike McCarthy has denied that Aaron Rodgers will be shut down. Make sure to keep updated on Rodgers injury report for the chance that he does play.
