Last week it was reported that the Green Bay Packers were considering working out former back up quarterback Matt Flynn and it looks like that will be taking place today. After the Packers loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 10 that saw another quarterback go down to injury and practice squad quarterback Scott Tolzien taking the reigns of the offense, they are beginning to feel a sense of urgency.
The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel first reported the news of today’s work out.
The Week 10 starter, Seneca Wallace, left Sunday’s game with a groin injury and there is no additional word on his injury. As for Tolzien, he showed signs of being a capable back up, but the team can do better.
With starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers still out for another month with a broken left collarbone, the Packers need to sure up the position soon in order to keep pace with the Detroit Lions and Chicago Bears in the NFC North.
If Flynn is healthy, which there are concerns he isn’t, then we would expect to see him sign with the Packers after his workout and potentially jump into the starting role for Week 11.
