Green Bay Packers star Aaron Rodgers is set for scans on his shoulder today after fracturing his collarbone on November 4, reports ESPN.
The quarterback has not played since picking up the injury against the Chicago Bears and now team doctors will analyse whether the 30-year-old is any closer to a return.
The Packers have been in terrible form since the loss of Rodgers and are without a win in their last five matches. Their most recent setback came in a 40-10 thrashing against the Detroit Lions on Thursday and they will be hoping that Rodgers can help boost the team.
Rodgers could be in contention to play against the Atlanta Falcons at the Lambeau Field on Sunday.
The Packers will be aware that they need to beat the Falcons this weekend to keep their playoff hopes alive.
They will come up against a confident Falcons side, who beat the Buffalo Bills 34-31 in their last fixture.
