According to the Green Bay Press Gazette's Mike Vandermause, quarterback Aaron Rodgers has been ruled out of the game by team officials, and will have to wait at least one more week before he sees the field.
This is great news for the Falcons, as the Packers have gone 0-4-1 without Rodgers and have really struggled to get much of anything going without the former Super Bowl Champion and MVP.
The Packers were blown out 40-10 by the Lions on Thanksgiving in their latest effort without him.
Backup quarterback Matt Flynn will start in Rodgers' place.
