Spitz likely to start at C for Green Bay Sunday

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Second-year player Jason Spitz replaced injured center Scott Wells in the portion of Packers practice that was open to the media today.

Spitz will likely start at center for the Packers against the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

He was a third-round pick in the 2006 NFL draft who started 13 games at guard for the Packers last season.

Wells is expected to miss at least a week after breaking a bone around his eye during the Packers' loss to the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field on Sunday.
