Flynn signs with Packers, Wallace to IR

From our news partner, WLUK in Green Bay:

GREEN BAY - Matt Flynn is back with the Packers, but not necessarily in a starting role. The Packers announced they signed the quarterback and placed last week's starter Seneca Wallace on the season ending injured reserve list.

Matt Flynn worked out for the Packers Monday, and according to head coach Mike McCarthy, "He looked good.”

Flynn had been rumored to have elbow problems after starting the year with Oakland, then moving to Buffalo before being cut by the Bills last week.

McCarthy has already named former practice squad quarterback Scott Tolzien as the starter for Sunday against the New York Giants at the Meadowlands. The head coach expects with a full week of practice getting the first team snaps, Tolzien should improve his efficiency. Tolzien went 24 for 39 for 280 yards and one touchdown against the Eagles on Sunday in a relief role. He also threw two interceptions. McCarthy said he felt Tolzien had an outstanding performance after getting just "a handful" of practice repetitions last week with the first team.

Seneca Wallace started the day at quarterback for the Packers against the Eagles, but went out with a groin strain. McCarthy said Wallace probably could have returned to the game in an emergency role if needed, but he had lost his mobility.

McCarthy said quarterback Aaron Rodgers told him he was hoping to play this week, but the coach said Rodgers was realistically at least a couple of weeks away.
