(WNFL) - The Green Bay Packers might get their entire offensive line back on Sunday, when they host Atlanta. Coach Mike McCarthy said he was hopeful that center Evan Dietrich-Smith would play, after he hurt a knee last Thursday at Detroit. The coach said yesterday that Dietrich-Smith is doing much better after resting for four days, in what some have called a "mini-bye week" for the Packers. Right tackle Don Barclay played the entire game against the Lions, after missing two weeks with a knee injury. McCarthy said the Packers needed time off, after going nine weeks since their earlier-than-normal bye week in late September. The coach said the time off was good for everyone, but now it's time to get back to work. The Packers are starting to practice today for their match-up against the 3-and-9 Falcons. Green Bay is 5-6-and-1 with a slim chance of making the post-season. The Packers are 0-4-and-1 without quarterback Aaron Rodgers -- and they're still not sure if he can return Sunday from the broken collarbone he suffered a month ago tonight.
