GREEN BAY, Wis. — After spending most of the past two decades with two quarterbacks, the Green Bay Packers are on their third in one week.
Wallace started for Aaron Rodgers, who fractured his left collar bone last Monday.
Wallace’s return was officially listed as questionable.
Tolzien signed to the Packers practice squad at the start of the regular season and was promoted last week. He had not thrown an NFL pass before Sunday.
Even before Wallace’s injury, the Packers were scheduled to have Matt Flynn in for a workout Monday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder. The Packers want to evaluate the health of the elbow on Flynn’s passing arm.
Mike McCarthy’s coaching staff has a positive history with Flynn and confidence in his knowledge of the team’s offensive system.
Flynn, who has played for the Seattle Seahawks, Oakland Raiders and Buffalo Bills since leaving the Packers in the 2012 offseason, passed for 480 yards and six touchdowns in his second start for the Packers in 2011-12 regular-season finale. Both totals set Packers team records.
