Packers Meet Titans in Pre-Season Finale

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Packers Quarterback Brett Favre lasted one play last year against the Tennessee Titans when Vince Young started his first NFL game as a rookie.

Favre stayed on the sideline as Young notched a 35-21 victory.

Thursday night, Favre is expected to play two or three series as he works on chemistry with new teammates like James Jones. The rookie receiver ran the wrong route and fumbled last week in a 21-13 loss to Jacksonville.

Favre says each week he sees that chemistry improving.

He won't have receiver Donald Driver, who's resting a sprained foot.

The Packers' top two running backs also are out. Vernand Morency hurt his knee in the first practice. And rookie Brandon Jackson is recovering from a concussion suffered in practice Sunday.

That gives Noah Herron the start, with rookie DeShawn Wynn, a seventh-round pick out of Florida, getting a chance at more playing time.
