With Aaron Rodgers getting just one series of play against the Seattle Seahawks on Friday night, Green Bay Packers backup quarterbacks Graham Harrell, Vince Young and B.J. Coleman each had an opportunity to show what they could bring to the table.
Young put his best foot forward.
Young led the Packers to their only touchdown of the night against the Seahawks, capping the drive with a 1-yard touchdown pass to fullback Jonathan Amosa. Young completed six of seven passes for 41 yards and rushed for 39 yards on three carries.
Harrell was six for 13 for 49 yards in relief of Rodgers. Coleman was two for seven for eight yards with two sacks.
Coleman doesn’t realistically appear to be in the conversation for the backup job, but Young has now made the battle with Harrell that much more interesting. With just over a week remaining until rosters have to be cut down to 53 for the start of the regular season, Young now appears to be legitimately in the conversation in the battle to backup Rodgers.
