Rodgers has shoulder sprain

Aaron Rodgers suffered a right shoulder sprain during the Packers’ 30-21 loss to the Buccaneers on Sunday, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said during his Monday news conference.

“He will rehab today and tomorrow, and we’ll have a better idea on Wednesday,” McCarthy said. “We will make sure both Matt (Flynn) and Aaron (Rodgers) are ready to play. Wednesday’s important.”

Rodgers injured his right shoulder early in the fourth quarter and missed two offensive series as backup Matt Flynn stepped in. Rodgers re-entered the game seven minutes later, but was hit from the blindside as he released a second-down pass from the Packers 40 and Gaines Adams intercepted near midfield, a turnover that lead to Earnest Graham‘s 1-yard touchdown that sealed victory for Tampa Bay.

After the game, Rodgers said that he thought that he may have separated the shoulder.
